I am new to this forum and have chronic facial pain as a result of a fall last year. I tripped and hit a brick wall teeth first and knocked a few teeth upwards and split my lip. I have been left with the most awful pain in my face and it is affecting every part of my life. I have lost lots of weight from not eating as it caused me pain and I seem to be allergic to every type of drug that would help. They have tried anti-convulsants but I can't tolerate them. They thought maybe I had trigeminal neuralgia but my pain doesn't fit the usual diagnosis. My pain consultant is going to try intravenous lidocaine therapy but I will have to wait until the end of July before they can start this. Has anybody had this? What was your experience?
