Started the morning crossword & the first clue was “mouth pain” so I triumphantly filled in neuralgia. The answer turned out to be “toothache.”
It is sad that the obvious answer to you was neuralgia and that most of us would have also missed the answer. But maybe one day scientist will find a treatment that works long term or a cure.
Not laughing at you, but with you. I would have written the same thing!!
