Hi, I just joined this group so I could ask a couple of questions. I have just scheduled a 2-level cervical fusion because of DDD and stenosis for the end of May. A couple of days ago, my top front crown started feeling tender, which surprised me because it's had a root canal. Two days ago I had trouble chewing because my crown hurt when my teeth touched it. Yesterday I scheduled a dentist appointment for this morning because the pain in my tooth became constant and it spread up into my nose. Then my upper lip and nose started feeling numb like I'd had a shot at the dentist. Last night my gums and my teeth on the right side of my mouth started feeling itchy/painful. I just woke up to excruciating pain in my nose, upper lip, right jaw, right ear. It all feels slightly numb except for my front upper lip which feels moderately numb. My neck is burning at the base of my skull - I'm used to pain below at c-5-c7, but this is higher. What the heck? Is this a tooth matter or something else? I did a little research and found out about Trigemal Neuralgia so I'm going to schedule a doctor's appointment as well. I'm used to a lot of pain but this is driving me absolutely crazy! Any of this sound familiar to you guys?
