So basically I've been experiencing sharp shooting pains in my mouth, like stabbing, electric shocks. I've experienced this pain 3 times this year now. The first time it came out of nowhere and it lasted around half the day. The second time a few months after it happened again but stayed for 2 whole days!! Then the 3rd time was around 2weeks back now, that was my worst experience so far, the pain lasted for 4 days, so I bravely took myself to the doctors and told him exactly what I was feeling and where. He looked inside my ear and straight out blank said you have something called trigeminal neuralgia. That's it, that's all he done. He then put me on 100 mg of carbamazepine and said to increase daily.
So I got home and started reading into the side effects and none of them sat well with me as I already suffer from depression and major anxiety so I didn't take any, all of a sudden the pain has gone, vanished into thin air. I literally have no idea. I was hoping maybe someone has had the same experience? I don't know.
Also when I had the pains it was also like a tooth ache/ear infection. This feeling was constant.
