Thanks for the replies. This throbbing pain is the weirdest thing. I think my teeth are going to fall out and just like T-lynn its gone. Doesn't seem like this is a sx that too many folks have, however.
I cannot believe you brought up this "symptom" at this time. I have been going through the same thing recently and had no thought that it might be related to MS! It started last winter and I would have this lancing, excruciating pain when I bit down on something, usually right at the beginning of eating. It would be pain in just one molar, and be so severe that I would alt least wince and sometimes cry out. Then my whole jaw and face to right in front of my ear would ache deeply for hours. My sister was really riding me to go to the dentist - which I hate doing! I happened over and over, but the tooth felt fine in between and there was no problem in the gum like an abcess or anything.
Then it stopped happening until about a month or so ago. Now it involves 2 or three teeth, some on the top and the same molar on the bottom, but the teeth are right together when I bite. I've been reading about tooth sensitivity and figured it was just this, but it is very intermittent. The pain is so severe, but so quick, and then the ache is so bad I'm sure I'm going to need a root canal, except the ache is back up in the jaw and in front of the ear (which is where the Trigeminal Nerve emerges). And one of the "teeth" that hurt has already had a root canal.????
I am going to the dentist to make sure the teeth are okay. If they are, I wonder if it is a symptom of the MS?
