: Two months ago I went in for a root canal on a bottom left molar. Two weeks later I had a root canal
: done on a right bottom molar. About a week later I noticed my upper teeth burning and then going numb.
: Both root canals continued to hurt as did almost all of my other teeth. Occasionaly my tounge would
: burn and it would spread to my gums. I was just diagnosed with atypical facial pain. Ive had three mri's done as
: as well as a spinal and theres no other causes. If anyone knows someone with this, or has any info. to share it would be greatly
Can't help too much. A little over two years ago I went and had a root canal. Dentist had a real problem numbing my jaw. Couldn't find the nerve back in my jaw. Then he found it and WOW did I come out of that chair. Was numb for a half hour and have been hurting ever since. Now on 4500 mgs of neurontin a day as well as 1200 mgs of tegratol.
Still hurts. Am going next Tues. to be evaluated for Radio Frequency R. Don't know if it will help hope so. Good luck to you.
