Experiencing nerve pain in jaw after bone biopsy. Had tooth pulled. Will pain subside?

Hello, I m experiencing nerve pain in my jaw are after a bone biopsy was done over a year ago after I had a tooth pulled because of an abscess . Ever since then the are hasn t fully healed and it continues to hurt even more than a year after. I have been on pain meds ever since. Then in an attempt to relieve the pain, I had a nerve block procedure done where they inserted a needle in to my neck. Not sure exactly what was done, but something about blocking never ganglia. Furthermore I have HIV and have malaria in the past which I thought cause some sort of never damage. Should I just wait out the pain? Have a combinations of all of these things just caused that nerve never to be able to hear properly? Or I wonder if a never was actually cut accidentally. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

After reading your debtal history i would say that you shouldn't
have done nerve blokage treatment done.we should find
the cause that y there is pain even after extraction.
I would advice you to get a dental x ray done of that area
may be remnants of tooth is left pr may be there is
spiny bony projection.if still the cause is not found
then refer to neurologist.i would also advice you
to mantain your oral hygiene rinse mouth with warm saline
water twice daily.vitamin supplements like neurobian forte
will help.

Dentist Dr. Bindiya Bhaskar's  Response
hello and welcome,
have you got checked your blood-sugar level since the wound healing is slow in your case.
there is a chance of nerve paralysis due to improper nerve block technique.
pain resolves promptly once the underlying trauma has healed and is treated by one practitioner with drugs such as analgesics and occasionally anxiolytics.
effective management of long-term pain frequently requires co-ordinated efforts of management team.
medicine treats injury and pathology to support and speed healing and treats distressing symptoms such as pain to relieve suffering during treatment and healing treatment approaches to long-term pain include pharmacologic measures such as analgesics,tricyclic antidepressants and anticonvulsants,interventional procedures,physical therapy,physical exercise,application of ice/heat and psychological measures such as biofeedback and cognitive behavioural therapy.
take care.
