I have just started taking gabapentin 300 mg 3 times a day for my tmj nerve pain.I have had 3 tmj surgeries and the third surgery resulted in chronic nerve damage to both of my tmj joints.I also take cymbalta and 25mg of neurotripiline but so far I have had no relief from my pain and I also have have chronic pain in my eardrums because of my tmj.It is just terrible and getting worse as I have had the tmj nerve damage for 34 years now.I was just wondering about how much of the gabepentin it might take to get some relief or if anyone here has tmj nerve pain or neurogical facial pain?Any suggestions would be helpful as the pain is just miserable.
thankyou, Marcie
