I'm new to these forums and I found it out of desperation. My mother is suffering from a terrible jaw pain for the last 5 years. It's a terrible jaw pain that usually flares up when it's windy, cold or raining. She has seen several doctors, but no-one has been able to accurately figure it out. Several doctors have said it has to do with the 5th nerve. They have thought about going in there and severing it to relieve her pain. However, she would have some partial paralysis on her face.

They have given her all types of pain medications, but nothing really works. We have a reached a point where we don't know what to do.
She's at the point where she cant take it any longer. She has said a few things that have got me very worried. Please, if anyout there can help, please email me as soon as possible. My email is vasquez_sandy@sbcglobal.net. Thank you very much
