I too, have severe facial pain, but mine is definitely due to TMJD. I am also on Neurontin to help my pain. I know exactly how you feel. Unfortunately, there are no real experts in this area. My next step is to see a pain management specialist. : My disorder is not so much in the jaw joint, but in the chewing muscles. They cramp, contract, grind, are in spasms continually. Eventually all the internal facial muscles and neck and upper back muscles are affected, and the pain is unbelievable. Anti-convulsants have helped a little(Neurontin), and pain-killers(God bless'em) help me survive. My drs aren't getting anywhere, but I haven't given up. Does anyone have this sort of facial pain...Every kind of therapy and med has been tried. Al awpcwp@cs.com
