I have had chronic facial pain for the past 3 years. It started one morning and basically has lasted everyday since then. It starts in the am and lasts all day long. I have it on both sides of my face but never at the same time. It is constant throbbing and ripping feeling in my jaw, aching teeth, and burning throat. I have been to see so many specialists over the years and the closest i hav gotten to a diagnosis is possible atypical neuralgia. Now I have noticed a small pea sized lump on my jaw just in front of my earlobe. It is hard and semimoveable when i do move it it makes my eye twitch or sends a shock to my ear. is it possible that is what is causing my pain as I have this lump on both sides of my face.
