For 3 months i have suffered from very severe headaches which last for days at a time and then just start again. I also have been getting bad earache with electric shock like pains in my ears and under my jaw. My glands are very swollen as is my face. My jaw hurts so much it is painful to open my mouth. My doctor has thrown every antibiotic at it in case it was an infection. I have ground my teeth for a couple of years. My dentist says my teeth are perfect but thought i had TN. My doc prescribed carbodiazepine which has stopped the electric shocks but my face still aches terribly. However i almost prefer the pain to the effects of the tablets. I'm sorry this is so long but i'm getting really depressed, i've got enough pain without this. Does this sound like TN or does anyone have any other ideas. Please help.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
