hello all- would glad to hear you opinions - (sorry in advanced for my english).
i am a 34 yo guy... i was totally healthy about 1.5 years ago .
about a year and 7 month ago - i went to do a dental cleaning - which i felt uncomportable in my mouth afterwards - but nothing really bad.
then -i've done some dental fillings and than a "deep" dental filling on tooth no 37 (lower left side). after that - it all strated - amazing pain - that lasted till that day.
i insisted to have a root canal on that tooth - it didn't help.
the pain is also in the ear, throat on one side. there are areas in the GUMS that if only touched - makes the pain worse. sometimes i can even CLOSE my mouth... i go with a night-gurad (that's the word?) - and put it even during day time...
my upper mouth burns.. and the gums.. and teeth.
since than - pain pain all the time. went to a LOT of doctors (at least 50 doctors - in all fields) - i got lyrica (high doses) , and Elatrol
for 1.5 year - i fought - and wanted to find the cause for it and cure it. nobody can live with that constant pain 24/7 . nobody.
i was to several pain clinics. got injections.. radiofrequency - didn't help.
my MRI is ok . so i guess i'm not a canidate to ANY surgical procedures.
as for meds - i admit - i didn't try them ALL . i admit. "only" tried LYRICA and amitriptylineץ
i slept better , but they didn't really do much for the pain.
maybe i "must" go back to meds. but i dread all those meds. they make the body feel uncomportable. i have bad memories from the meds.
a nightmare... i can't even write correctly... my brain is like on fire from bieng in this hellish situation.... if someone would offer me to end it all - i would take it - each way it will be
