Oral Facial Pain: There is no common reason for chronic pain symptoms you have. The two sources are primary pain etiology or what is called heterotropic pain referred from the source to where you experience the pain. The is a growing specialty in dentistry called orofacial pain that is well trained in the diagnosis and treatment of complex head and neck pain. This type of dentist can help you.
