Happy 4th of July to all,
My friends last year I reported TN symptoms caused by full mouth implant restoration. Back then it was diagnosed that the back mandible right molar implants were touching/compressing a branch of IAN. The two molars were removed and the unbearable throbbing electric pain that was driving crazy was resolved. After the removal of the lower molar implants a pain surfaced on the maxillary right molar implants which was probably masked by the strong IAN pain.
The doctor suspected #6 implant was touching the wall of right maxillary sinus and had inflamed the lining of the wall and this was probably the cause of my pain. Implant #6 was removed last year and the pain was reduced but not complete gone. The doctor at this point said that if the pain does not go away within nine months I will have to live with it.
Nine months have gone by and the pain starts getting worse, it wakes me up every 2 to 3 hours and as a result I sleep in intervals. Good thing I took an early retirement from HP when I started the full mouth implant restoration and I have the luxury to go to bed and get up any time is needed. I noticed that if I sleep straight from the waste up the pain subsides a little. At the same time I have hot flashes on both cheeks exactly below the ears, this is more irritating that painful because the pain masks it.
I visited last week a “head and neck” doctor, the diagnosis was that the pain is not related at all to sinus , it is most likely TN type of pain related to maxillary nerve or related nerve and that she will not know for sure unless I remove all the implants.
My question to you is this; Is anyone here that was or still going with a painful TN pain that wakes you up every couple of hours that will drive any human crazy? The doctor says that when you lay down the brain has no stimulation and pays attention to any abnormal nerve pain and wakes you up. Strangely enough I discover that when I laugh the pain gets better, of course I don’t cry because I cry very bad and people don’t like it…lol
Any input will be grater appreciated.
