This is the story as told by Bob Davies from Queensland, Australia.
I am a 47 yr old man who was diagnosed with MS in 1994 [about 15 yrs ago] My MS is the secondary progressive type so I dont experience regular exacerbations, just a steady decline. Although using a wheelchair for the last 10 years I still spend about 1 hr in the pool every day and try to keep as fit as possible.
About 2 yrs ago I started to experience severe pain shooting upwards from my upper RH row of teeth, so to the dentist I went, to be told, there is no dental reason for the pain. GP visit followed, where I was given painkillers & referred to a Neurologist. Meanwhile I had done as much research on TMJ pain on the net as I could and when the specialist suggested cutting the facial nerves I thought, there must be a better way.
