I've been having what I thought were dental problems throughout the year, going to the dentist constantly complaining of odd pains in certain teeth along with aches and pains in my jaw?
I was told I had a cracked tooth and so a root canal was performed. I was pain free for about ten days and then the pain came back with a vengeance.
This time I'm getting pain from my right temple down to my cheek which feels hot, my upper and lower jaw aches badly and it still feels like my teeth and gums are hurting, ear ache and sleeplessness complete my symptoms and I'm pretty fed up I can tell you.
After another visit to the dentist on Monday to be told yet again that she can't see anything, I've been referred to the hospital but the pain has been so severe I had to go to the Doctors this morning.
He told me he thinks it sounds like Trigeminal Neuralgia and has given me some Tegretol tablets to take along with strong pain killers.
My pain isn't shooting like other comments I have read, it is a constant throb of debilitating pain. I just want it to stop.
I am sick of the dentist looking at me like I am making it up too. Fed up, and don't know whats happening?
Is this curable? What caused it? so many questions and no one to answer them? I'm taking 2 x Co Codamol 30s every 4 hours, 1 x Ibuprofen in between and I took my first Tegretol today
thank you for reading,
