Hi there,

i have a upper molar tooth right hand side that I get sharp tingles through it. The discomfort lasts for probably only a second, but can occur many times during the day.

i have visited my dentist many times where he has x rayed, filled, prodded the offending tooth. I have also had a MRI scan which thankfully did not reveal anything.

this discomfort has been going on for nearly 2 and a half years now. I have periods where the sensation abates. The most recent was for approximately 4 weeks, then bang off it goes again.

please can any one help

thanks

Hi,

Was there any change in this sensation over the years (frequencies, intensities, area...)
If not, it is probably not a dental issue, and than it might be a neurological phenomena.

Hi, the sensation is always the same. No worse over the years. As I stated before I have had a head MRI scan and was told unlikely to be tri germinal neuralgia. Very puzzling
