I have had a pain in the lower left side of my mouth for nine months now. It's not a sharp pain, but rather a low (under the teeth), aching type of pain. I have it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In other words, there's no specific time that I notice it more. I have seen four dentists total (2 regular, 2 Specialists). I have had two root canals (#19 and #20), surgery (tips of roots ground down on #20), have been on antibiotics three times, steroids once and countless pain pills.
No one can determine what the problem is. The only relief I get is from topical solutions like Oragel, which totally confuses the dentists. Basically, I've been told that they can't find anything and if the topical products keep working, just stick with those! I've almost given up hope of ever being without this pain. ...Jeffrey in MI
Jeffrey, strange, but your pain is coming from somewhere. If you have ruled out teeth as the source of the pain then it has to be a neurologic problem or muscular problem. You need more tests. I would also consult with a
neurologist, oral surgeon, and TMJ expert. There has to be an answer to your problem. You shouldn't live
