I've never met a good dentist. EVER. They're equivalent to psycho serial killers in my opinion.
: : 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
: : appreciated.
: Hi Guy;
: 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.
