    Very painful lingual nerve damage from novocaine shot

    I have extreme pain- all of this on the left side, where fillings went in on 12/30/09 (and I remember how painful the shot was that day) -  from tip of my tongue to burning throat, ear, aching teeth, inner cheek, daily headaches, etc... cannot chew on the left side, cannot eat most foods. This has changed my life in too many ways to name here - it is really awful.


    My present need is for coping with the pain...I am on Tegretol, doesn't help. What about Neurontin or Lyrica, any thoughts? Wondering if anyone else is dealing with any facial nerve pain and can offer advice. Also wondering if/when this will ever go away, I have my "good" days and bad, but the good ones aren't very good! Many Thanks.
