I think Bob would know more because he has that as well. In my particular case, I have pain
that starts in my left cheek, very sharp, stabbing pain
. It then travels to my left temple, eye, ear, jaw, teeth, neck and skull. I don't know if mine would be atypical because the pain gets worse with time. I have found some relief with 800 mg of ibuprofen, albeit temporary. I take 12-16 per day, 4 with each attack.
