Brain Stem Lesion and Facial Pain

Six years ago, my wife developed Bell's Palsy while giving birth. The effects improved, but there is still some neuralgia and permanent nerve damage and facial displasyia. Gradually over the last six years she has had episodes of neck and facial pain. They have progressively gotten worse and have pretty much turned into a chronic condition. Have had several MRI/MRA's and they show two lesions in the nucleus of the brain stem. Still waiting for results meeting with doctor. We have been to numerous neurologists and don't have any definitive answers. They were able to rule out a stroke. Hopefully this next meeting will give us more guidance. Any ideas of what this could be? MS has been mentioned but has been dismissed a couple of times. I would really appreciate if anyone has any insight.
