I’m fairly new here and my TN1 (Right side, 3rd nerve) came out of remission a few months ago and my neurologist and I have been trying medications, having reactions (Carbatrol), and trying new meds as of now. (Neurontin, Baclofen). I just started the Neurontin about 4 days ago and I am still having shocks and occasional attacks. When I was on Carbatrol (before the reaction) and it seemed to have taken my pain away.
I have a broken tooth on the bottom right side of my mouth that has been infected before (but never triggered my TN pain) I have no toothache… however … I am wondering if this could be the cause of my TN flare up? My tooth doesn’t hurt, but I was told I needed a root canal months ago but was not able to have one because I didn’t have the money. Could I have an infection in the root without having any tooth pain? If I did… how could I get it taken care of if I am in the grasps of my TN flare up? I’m so lost and confused. I’m just looking for answers and I’m in so much pain it’s all I can think about. Anything helps.
