I have a question that has puzzled me for some years now. Back in 1995 I had 6 teeth removed under General Anesthesia, because my dentist said that my wisdom teeth were impacted so bad that I couldnt stand the pain were I to stay awake. I went to an oral surgeon to have this done. My Trigeminal Neuralgia started a few years after this dental surgery, could they be related? Im wondering could the Oral Surgeon have damaged the Trigeminal Nerve in my face and that is what is causing me this excruciating pain? It is usally on the right side but this last week prior to my migrane it began on the left side of my face. Let me describe my pain: It starts with a throbbing in my temple, my ear hurts down deep inside like a bad earache and both rows my top and bottom teeth hurt on the affected side, my eyelid swells and my eye waters on that side, my nose drips on that one side only, my lip goes numb and the back of my throat goes numb and it hurts in the roof of my mouth and down my throat when I swallow. My glands in my neck on that side swell and my face swells up like a chipmunk, I can barley open my mouth and I cant hardly talk the pain is so bad.It feels like a migrane, earache, toothache all combined into one and a sinus headache to boot! Its horrible! Could it have been caused from this Tooth Extraction?
