But the problem is that the pain is always very sudden and very sharp. It doesn't give me any time to adjust to it. It is an instinct reaction that I cannot control. It is also a pain that goes from my teeth to my entire jaw, and makes it impossible to think
Of course, I could keep on trying, and maybe after 10 treatments I would manage do to that.. but I would prefer something faster
Ah I see. Regular topical anesthetics not working is very interesting. The opioid resistance makes sense from your history though. Has your dentist tried a benzodiazepine?
