HiMy daughter who is 29 has been suffering with face pain

Customer Question

Hi
My daughter who is 29 has been suffering with face pain for the last four years. She has had scans and tests and TN has been ruled out. I think every kind of pain relief has been tried and nothing has worked. The only thing that gives any sort of relief but does not take away the pain is acupuncture.
The pain is constant and along her right cheekbone. I am really concerned as she is struggling to even get up in the morning and function. She is under a consultant, but we are no further forward with any answers than when it began. I am really concerned about her.
Any advise would be gratefully accepted.
Thank you a desperate mom.
