Because of a friend who has Trigeminal Neuralgia, that's my first thought about
your condition. Have you considered that? There are some very good online support groups for that also. I've spent some time on them. The typical advice for elective surgery is NO WAY since so many things seem to make the pain worse so why take a chance. I'm a bit concerned about
your doctor saying an undiagnosed facial pain would be "no problem". Hope he is right. I suggest you Google TN or Facial Pain support groups and ask for their opinions also.
