Hi everyone, just signed up to get your advice and thank everyone who will take time to read my story. Long story short, I sustained a trauma last October in my front teeth which I thought would heal quickly. Ever since the issue has become chronic. I've seen many specialists including dentist, TMJ, ENT, neurologist, did an MRI and X rays and all are clear. No infection, no inflammation, no damage. Yet, one doctor mentionned allodynia. The trigger is characterized by extreme sensitization to touch of the 4 front teeth. I mean to the point just wind on my teeth, or even gliding a hair on the teeth can trigger the pain. Of course daily activities like brushing teeth, eating drinking, talking and even mouth-breathing trigger the pain. So I try to avoid the triggers, eat less (lost 20 lbs), avoid talking to people. Basically I stopped living. The pain once triggered is sort of like flared up teeth, burning, tingling, pressure to the joints, muscle spasm in masseter/pterygoid, migraines. What makes me think it could be TMS is that at night and first thing in the morning my teeth feel fine. Once I took a 30 minute nap while I was in pain and when I woke up the pain was gone. Does allodynia dissappear when unconscious? Also, I did have burning scalp syndrome 4 years ago, sort of similar to my teeth but in my scalp. It lasted a year. Hopefully someone has some imput, the pain is driving me nuts.
