My 16 year old was hit in the face with a lacrosee ball two years ago. No bruising or swelling. We figured it was a concussion. Two weeks after, she starting having terrible facial pain around her eyes. Stabing, burning headaches. Sometimes she feels the nerves in her teeth. Not trigeminal neuralgia. We have seen PT, neuro surgeons, anestiaologiest group, pain groups, chiropractors, acupuncturist, food allergy testing, naturpaths, psycologists, EENT. Several MRI's and cat scans. No one has any more ideas. She is unable to attend school. She is on the maximum dosage of Gabapentin, 800mg's three times a day. Any ideas?

  • Sorry new to forum, excuse double entry... Have you checked her eyes? I would also look into trigger points on her face prób from strain. If you have an MRI/CT have a neurosurgeon take a look at disc again, not just reports. I spent thousands and just needed glasses asap. I hope that is all she needs :)
