Hello all. Recently joined. My wife found this forum for me and I'm looking for some answers. I'm a 54yo male dianoised with tongue/tonsil cancer in 02/11. I went through 2 weeks or chemo (weeks 1 and 4) and a total of 36 radiation treatments. My lower wisdom teeth were removed 4 weeks after completing radiation treatment. Was diagnoised with ORN of the left lower jaw where the bulk of the radiation was. Underwent 20 hyberbaric treatments. After 18 months it was decided that I needed debridement of the jaw bone. That was done 3 weeks ago along with having 2 additional teeth removed. 10 more hyperbaric treatments. Here's my question. I've been having 'facial spasms' on the left side of my face (jaw to neck) now for about 6 months. Recently the spams have gotten more locaized and intense (directly in the center of my left jaw. At times the are so strong I find it difficult to talk. Almost painful. I'm looking for possible solutions? Accupuncture, quinine tablets. Anyone have any ideas?
