I have a broken top molar with severe nerve pain affecting the trigeminal nerve, or the main nerve of the face - the pain radiates from the tooth back to the ear and down to my bottom teeth on the same side, almost to the point that you cannot tell which tooth is causing the pain. I tried painkillers, Anbesol, Orajel, mouth spray (this sent it on fire) and the results were mediocre at best. I found this site last night and even though I though it sounds crazy, I applied Vicks Vapor Rub to my face all along the nerve pathway and rubbed it in thoroughly. Unbelievable! It felt so good and calmed the nerve totally. I slept wonderfully and 17 hours later I am still pain free. If you have this sort of pain I recommend you try it - worked for me!
