Suffering from severe lower jaw bone pain, headaches, sinusitis. Had tooth extraction. Scheduled CT scan. Where does problem lie?

hi Doctor,

I am suffering from severe lower right jaw bone pain along with headache arond ear&neck and eye(only right side).
This has been from one year

My history:

Last year July i had a wisdom tooth extraction surgeory on right top and bottom as well due to pain at right side.
Both wisdom tooth were not came outside , as they were slant and inside i got surgeory.

After surgeory , i had pain for two weeks. extended my dosage fr the nxt week.

Two moths passed without any pain, later i was suffering from severe pain at mt lower jaw bone around ear&back neck and eye only right side(right hand joints when it is severe).

then i went to orthofacial doctor who said it might due to some severe thinking and tensions.

Not relief and staisfied with the solution..

I refered an ENt specialist at my location and said the problem.
As i have sinusitis problem earlier from four/five years.He thought it might sinus infectionas i am getting pain around eye and ear.
Asked me to get CT-Scan .It shows that mild sinus infection at right side and gave dose for sinus infection and pain for a week.
But am sure it is not sinus pain as i used to get earlier , but from almost 2/3years i was not sufferd from it.
Howerver i completed the dose but again same problem no result even when i take the dose for pain.

Again i refered a ENT at other location who listened my problem and though it might be due nerve irritation which got irritated @ of extraction.i have taken course of tablets for two months but no use .
Even after dose of 2 months i have suffered for pain alot.(the dose worked only when i take )

Next recently three moths back i consulted a dentist who examined my digital xray and said i got bone croma .. he mean tissues and nerves got disturbed while lower tooth extraction and the small bone layer was also removed along with tooth.
Gave a dose of Hifevac -p and Ketorol (severe pain) . Later he suggested for laser treatment so that the muscles might get relaxed and may/may not reduce the pain.
But i have not taken any laser treatment as it might be risk again.

Hmmm.. facing severe pain daily and taking tablets(disprin/Nicip/Hifevac -p/Ketorol) which are avilable with me .

Is there any solution to my problem ..Becoz of this i am unable to do my things.. and sometimes crying alot.
Please help me to which doctor i need to consult ....

Thank you for posting your query.

I agree your problem is complex, and you have not received a proper diagnosis and treatment till now. Constant and chronic pain over a long period of time adversely affects the quality of life as well as occupation.

In my opinion, your pain is of neuropathic (nerve-related) origin and you should consult a neurologist. A problem with teeth or sinus would not lead to these kinds of pain for such a long duration.

MRI of the brain should be done to exclude any underlying reason for the pain.

Medications that are likely to help you are pregabalin or gabapentin.

I hope it helps.

I ve been suffering with swollen, bulging gums, pain in mouth for close to a year. most recently the tissue in the corners of my mouth running towards my nose are very visibly swollen. The tissue seems to be thickening and I also have many little bumps in upper and lower lips. I ve seen many dentists and doctors without any results. I m concerned that it could be oral cancer but the doctors I ve seen don t think that s the case. I had a ct scan which should minor irritation of the sinuses. I ve also been suffering from severe headaches or migraines and it all seems to be progressively worse. Does anybody have suggestions as to what might be the problem?

My problem is with my stomach muscles.Inspite of my exercise and moderate food habits I have a stomach of 36 inches.When I sit down I have to adjust my belt by changing the hole.When I wear underwear I feel very tight in abdominal area.Thats why I stopped wearing underwaear except when I exercise. I consulted a specialist who is into weight loss surgery like gastric band and sleeve who initially suggested to go for liposuction.When I requested for a non surgical solution he offered me a complimentary session on Radio frequency Tripolar machine.He promised that I will loose 2 inches over 6 sittings.For each sitting there should be a gap of 2 weeks.He says the skin also will be tightened apart from fat reduction in the tissues.I have also read that this can be done by Ultrasound Lipolysis and Zerona laser treatments. Please suggest me which is ideal for reducing my stomach sag.
