My TN symptoms started three weeks ago with pain in my lower teeth in the right side. The pain has then spread to my right ear, upper teeth in the right side, cheek bone and in front on the joint. The pain varies from sharp and short to a more constant ache in the wake of the short and sharp pains. It has felt like someone was trying to pull out a tooth to someone drilling in a tooth to needles on my ear drum to just feeling bruised and battered across the entire right side of my face.
It became so bad this weekend that I went to the ER, where the doctor suggested TN. I'm seeing a dentist today to rule out any cavities and an ear-nose-throat specialist to rule out anything related to jaw joint. I've been checked for infections and there are no signs of that.
My question to the forum is how important it is that I get a quick referral to a neurologist if problems with the teeth and jaw are ruled out? Is time an important factor in terms of treatment working?
Many thanks for your time!
