Hello to fellow sufferers. I was just diagnosed with either Trigeminal Neuralgia or TMJ. Yes, it's true, Dr doesn't know. I checked TMJ and the stabbing, excruciating pain that feels like there's an icepick being jammed into my ear, Sounds like TMJ but I also am VERY touch-sensitive when it happens. I can't even feather touch anywhere on my ear or area around it. So, if anyone could shed any light on this, it'd be greatly appreciated.
