8 years after treament, I have recently been crawling the walls with extreme pain in the right side of my faace - very like the pain I had during radiotherapy, but just on one side, as if I have severe ear ache, dental bscess and broken jaw all at once. Docotr has finally said it is trigeminal neuralgia, and has started me on some treatments ( normal pain killers don't work on this disease). I am keeping my fingers crossed it works - he said it is caused by the radiotherapy as the scar tissue is now compressing the nerve at its root. Anyone else had this?
