I agree with kaismama that it could be trigeminal neuralgia. It is very painful and can bring on the pain very easy with just chewing. If you have not been to a neurologist I suggest you doing so. If you are diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgua the first line of treatment is medication usually with a drug called carbamazepine (Tegretol). I wish you the best outcome.
What meds have you tried for your pain?. If it is trigeminal neuralgia, then Trileptal, Tegretol, Lyrica, Neurontin and Baclofen were all suggested to me. Due to some difficulty with side effects, the Baclofen worked the best for me. But I didn't have any numbness with my pain. Good luck.
