I don't know whether this is off topic, but yesterday I got an attack of facial neuralgia, on the left side cheekbone with pain extending into the teeth. I've had this on and off for years - I'll get an attack that can last for a week or more, then have nothing for 2-3 years. The pain got so bad last night that I just about knocked myself out on Panadeine, but still woke during the night with pain. BTW it's not toothache - the tooth nearest to the painful area has been killed off by root canal and then capped. I've had it all checked out by dentists over the years and it's all clear as fas as they're concerned.
So this morning I googled 'facial neuralgia' and among a lot of info was a reference to diabetic neuropathy. As I already have peripheral and autonomic neuropathy, I guess it could be related. I'm not asking for medical info, but has anyone else had this sort of thing?
