Default trigeminal neuropathy/atypical face pain - scared!!!


I have been diagnosed with trigeminal neuropathy which makes my whole left side of the face tingle, burning sensation inside the mouth and my lower molars hurt like toothaches.

The casue i have been told is probably a root canal or the wisdom teeth extractions.

I wish i could turn back time.

I am so scared that this pain will never go away! I am only 28 and i cant imagine to live with this for the rest of my life.

Do you have any experiences that the pain goes away?

I am currently taking 75mg of Amitriptyline which takes the edge off but does not remove the pain completely.

Any answers, I would really appreciate

Thank you so much

Default Yes there are some successes

Here is a brand new post from a new member - there are many others as well.


Here is one that started in Jan and has been updated frequently:


Thanks to all those that take the time to post encouraging news for those that are terrified of a new diagnosis.

Take the time to read the stickies on the first page of the TN forum.

Good Luck!
