Im 27 and was recently diagnosed with tn. After countless trips to the er and dentists I finally found a doctor that didn't think my pain was made up or that I was crazy! Im waiting for my MRI results from Friday to check for any other issues. My doctor started me on nuerontin 300 mg just at night.. I wasn't able to sleep more then an hour or two without waking up in severe pain in my teeth radiating into my ear and face which felt like it was on fire! The meds help me sleep for about 5 hours then I'm up again with the pain.. I had a few pain pills, Vicodin, from a root canal that I take and it seems to help then pain and put me back to sleep.. I don't know how to approach asking my doctor for something for break threw pain without looking like I just want drugs being im so young. Should I increase my dose of nuerontin? I have a high pain tolerance but I can't take it.. I've dealt with this for months and it's driving me crazy!!!
