Hi I'm in my early 40s and have had bad sinus problems especially over the last 5 months. Some symptoms have eased but since June with my blocked nose (and swellings in nostrils) I've developed constant gum pain in the upper mouth, a pressure type feeling in my upper pallet, pains in my left nostril upper, and jaw ache. The pain is usually dull but when I lye down at night I get the feeling my teeth are being pulled out. I don't get any pain (just a numb feeling) when I press my cheek or rub it but I did a test by resting the left side of my head in my hand (using my arm as a stand) . I did get some feeling from just above my ear to my gums. Is it TN? Is it just an inflamed maxillary nerve? I also have small white swellings on either side of my upper back gums. What is it ?
