excruciating face pain

Posted by facepainsufrer @facepainsufrer, Dec 17, 2011

trying to learn about conditions associated with excruciating face pain, and TN, does anyone have experience with this?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Just Want to Talk group.

I had TN off and on for years. Neurontin did not help. After having a tooth removed (with a deep root imbedded in my gum) I never got another attack. RB


Yeah, sounds like you might need a root canal or something.


Thank you both for your reply. The pain came on for about one week, settled down with antibiotics, and now only have twinges. The dentist and I are trying to do some detective work, and I may end up with a root canal.


I was diagnosed with TN in july of 2010. medical treatments worked for a while but i had to have a microvascular decompression (brain surgery) in oct of 2010. I did well until about 6 weeks ago, when the pain returned with a vengance! I was offered cyber-knife radiation therapy but i was told that the risk of damage to other cranial nerves was high. does anyone have any input/experience with this ?
