All,

I have atypical face pain from having too much dental work done (7 root canals, wisdom teeth out etc) and am now taking 100mg Elavil ( Amitriptyline) and 2700 mg Gabapentin. Both drugs dont do much regarding pain relief.
My pain is constant and in the left side only. It feels like a toothache and then some pulling, tingling and cold sensation in the cheek. I dont have the shocks like trigeminal neuralgia but the pain is just constant.

Can please pleaaaase anyone with atypical face pain, facial neuralgia etc. tell me what meds they take and what worked best for them?


thank you so much
I am soo desparate!!

I have had atypical trigeminal neuralgia for about 4 years now, and I take Lyrica and Cymbalta together and they work pretty good. It makes the pain bearable.

I am diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia. I too have had about 9 root canals. I am certain that is the cause of the pain issue. I am now taking 600 mg AM & PM Neuriontin and 100 mg Tegretol. I am still having pain (stabbing) every 5 days. it is a bit milder. I don't want to live with this pain. It stkries every 4 to 5 days. It lasts sometimes off and on for an hour or two. sometimes it will be off and on for the day. Also hot food, chewing on my left side or sometimes doing nothing. Cold food or liquids seems to help at the time of the pain.
I think the pain is less severe but I want it to go away. I don't think taking the meds is good but what else to do? Of they helped, that would be another thing.
