Hi there,I am an experienced Medical Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.You may have trigeminal neuralgia.
A chronic pain condition affecting the trigeminal nerve in the face.
The trigeminal nerve carries sensation from the face to the brain.
Symptoms range from mild to severe facial pain, often triggered by chewing, speaking, or brushing the teeth.
Treatment includes medications, injections, and surgery.
You can try over the counter Ibuprofen 600 mg per dose every 6 hours.
If no improvement in 24 hours, you will need prescription pain medication like Gabapentin or carbamazepine after exam.
An infection of the gum or tooth also needs to be ruled out.
