I was diagnosed with TN in 8/17 after thinking the jaw pain I've had since 2/16 was a tooth issue. in 2016 I saw dentists, endodontics's, chiropractor, acupuncture, massage therapy. In 9/17 I started wearing VOXX socks and the pain stopped until 3/18 when I had another stressful event. The flare-ups come after stressful events in my work life.
I don't like taking the pharmaceutical's ie., Tegertol and gabapentin because of the side affects and knowing they will eventually have negative affects in other areas in my body.
My neurologist thinks the TN is due to the 20-25 year old silver/mercury fillings in my teeth. She says when a flight/fight stressful event occurs the body emits cortisol which counteracts with the mercury which causes the TN nerve to go into spasms.. I'm not so sure I agree. So I want to know if anyone else has had all there silver fillings replaced and if the TN went away? It will be a long and very expensive undertaking to replace 7 fillings because they usually turn into needing root canals/crown.
I recently started taking CBD oil and I think the flare ups are becoming less in quantity and intensity, but their still there. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
