Hello and thanks for the query.

Your question is a good one and I will work on providing some information and recommendations for you here.

The Oxytol is a medication that targets nerve pain. It generally will take some time to work but should have an impact within a week or two. I would suggest you enourage her to give this medication a trial.

It may take a bit of time for her body to adjust to the medication in her system and I understand her hesitation to take the medication due to concern regarding side effects.

I think at this point it is worth a try to see if this will help.

If for some reason the medication does not help I would suggest she see an oral and maxillofacial specialist for further recommendations.

Thanks again for the query. I hope this serves to be an informative experience for you. I remain available if you have additional concerns as well.
