    mine first started with a stabbing pain in my left ear about 4 years ago- this would come & go then disappeared mostly with

    the odd attack. Earlier this year it came back- this time it would start with a dull ache in my chin/jaw then a sharp pain in my mouth- i would describe it like

    the injection you get at the dentist - this lasts several minutes then it gradually goes away- this can happen many times a day- the periods of it disapearing are not so long now - few days
