Hey everyone! I was just diagnosed with TN six days ago. I just had my medication (gabapentin) increased from 100mg once a day to 300mg twice a day because the pain was so bad. Now the pain is much more manageable with only a slight tingle or ache on occasion with the exception of one tooth. I had gone to the dentist before getting diagnosed with TN, and they said I could have a "potential" infection in one of my molars on the side that I get my TN pain. They shaved it a little bit to "relieve my bite" since I have an open bite. Now that tooth hurts even with medication, but the pain level is not consistent. Should I head back to the dentist or does this sound like TN pain? It is most sensitive when I eat (hot and cold) or if I press it gently with my tongue. I'm new to all of this so I'm not sure how to tell the difference between normal tooth pain and TN just yet.
