In brief: Diagnosis

Diagnosis required before treatment.
See TMJ-oral facial pain specialist for diagnosis/treatment recommendations. Any dentist can be a TMJ orofac8al pain expert with the proper training and experience. Most commonly, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and orofacial pain specialists. Ask your MD, your dentist and your dental society for referrals.

In brief: None

At least until a diagnosis has been provided.
There may be something serious and pain meds may prolong getting appropriate treatment.

In brief: Trigeminal Neuralgia

Tn is a specific name to a type of facial pain.
It can take a few doctors visits to get a final ruling. Don't wait it is not cancer but the pain can cause anxiety! think flesh/tissue and not nerves (proper) for face pain! begin a self-care wellness program of vits, magnesium glycinate, sleep hygiene, self/pro massage, chiropractor, heat, epsom soaking, stretching. I use acupuncture! see my files.

In brief: Constant pain?

You really need to find out the cause of this constant pain.
It does not make sense to take constant pain medication.
