I am so glad I came across this thread because this is exactly what I am dealing with. Back in January I developed this excrutiating pain on the left side of my face and I thought it was my tooth since my dentist said I had a cavity. I got the cavity filled but the pain was still there, I then went back and my dentist said that the filling was to big and they sanded it down and the pain did subside for a bit but it never went away. Then the excrutiaing pain came back and I went back to the dentist he took xrays tapped around with his instruments and kept expeting me to jump out of the chair but nothing. He said that my teeth were fine but that I did have a severe case of TMJ. He gave me a nightguard and the pain again subsided, but never went away completely. The excrutiating pain came back yesterday. When I have the really bad pain, the left side of my face feels like its numb. Its painful to brush my teeth, it hurts to chew and talk. If i lay down and I roll over on to my left side and as soon as the pillow touches my face, it like a shock gets sent through my face and my heart starts racing because of the pain. I finally made an appointment with my PCP and hopefully she can help me because the pain is driving me crazy.
