. . . see now on this one you would have gotten off scott-free, cause I don't know anything about the facial pain you describe.
There's TN, but I don't really know if that's how it effects us.
My pain, that turned out to be TMJ (thought was TN), was jaw pain from clenching my teeth mostly. This happened because of some medication I was on and I had to get a guard for my teeth when I slept. The pain (clenching, ear ringing, etc.) let up as soon as I went off that medication though.
The only other pain I've had in the face was related to my teeth or sinuses. The numbness I had (mouth, lips, tongue, throat) did not cause any pain.
So, I don't know the answer to whether this is MS-related or not . . . but would say that is not likely neuropathy anyway.
