Customer Question
I had all my teeth...
I had all my teeth pulled in 2007Since April 1st I have had intense horrefic pain in my upper right gum right side (in 2007 I had tooth pulled it got infected I had to go on iv pump since the infection went to blood stream) I then was advised to have all teeth pulled. I was told in Alaska it was cranial nerve #5 they put me on tegatrol since medical care is so bad in Ak I moved back to Seattle, I went to oral surgeon who did a procedure he drilled did laser and I have stitches that come out on Monday. I had a cat scan and went to a neurosurgon who said it isnt trigimanal neurolgia but the oral surgeon said that the pain went away when he did anthesia to that area. I am beside myself the pain is making it so that I cant think. Also the tegatrol is making me a basket case but since I have had two seizures I have to be careful about going off but the pain is so bad that I cant think I cant eat and I basically cannot function
thank you

I am asking how to get rid of this God awful pain in my mouth I cant think I cant talk hardly at all I cant eat or sleep the pain is God awful and I dont know what is wrong or how to heal it
Dentist: Dr. Cliff, Dentist replied 8 years ago
Thanks for the reply. If all your teeth are now gone, I believe you may be on the right track thinking this is a trigeminal nerve or branch of the facial nerve. I would suggest a visit to your neurologist. They would be able to do test to figure out which one is causing you the pain and then once figured out, be able to try and block this nerve to eliminate your pain. I really feel this the way you need to go in order to get relief....Dr. Cliff

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
