Hello fellow facial pain warriors!
It’s been a while since I’ve been on here as my pain has been very well controlled and I am not currently on any meds.
My trigeminal neuropathy began at the dentist’s when I was getting 3 fillings, and now over 4 years later and despite my efforts with oral care, I need more.
In all honesty, I am completely terrified. I am so scared my pain will come back in full force and that I will be in the same miserable position I was in years ago.
It would be a huge help to me if anyone could give me some advice on specifics for what I should ask for and what I should avoid at the dentist’s while getting fillings.
It would also be a huge comfort to hear others’ stories of getting dental work post-TN/TNP. I honestly feel like I’m going to lose years of work of getting my pain under control over this.
