However, I still have daily episodes of intense pain that may leave a lingering severe ache
before the pain remits. Anti-inflammatories may help, but not always. Tylenol doesn't help.
I was referred to an oral surgeon who said it is definitely a nerve issue, and if I wasn't better in a month, we might consider Neurontin. The site of injection is healed, no infection, no abscess. On x-rays, everything looks physically okay.
