I have had a row of 5 teeth on my front left side hurting like crazy on and off for months, think ‘ice pick in the face and teeth’ pain level, appears when I eat or drink. I gave birth with no drugs, not even gas and air, so I thought I could take pain but this is something else.
- Dentist xrayed and examined teeth and said they are fine. They are the front teeth and do look healthy, white and strong. I use sensodyne and it doesn’t really help.
- GP thought perhaps sinus infection without much exmination. It’s not a sinus infection as I didn’t even have a cold at the time.
- Neurologist said perhaps Trigeminal Neuralgia !
I am not diagnosed with MS, still waiting for my MRI in January.
However this pain is so unbearable that I can’t eat or drink sometimes. I am breastfeeding so getting a bit dehydrated too.
Also, I can’t believe it’s not in my teeth as it feels like super extreme sensitive teeth. These teeth also ‘tingle’ and ‘ache’ in between attacks of intense pain. Cold air can set them off too. Could it be some tooth damage not detectable by xray and not TN?
Does anyone have any advice on management? I am struggling a bit with it. I know TN is a symptom of MS, but not sure of any diagnosis yet. But could definitely be TN, advice on that would be good.
