Sounds like I have got off lightly. My discomfort comes and goes. Though frequently. I have heard of lyrica but I am so sick of taking medications.
The oil of cloves I only use on gums and teeth. I can't imagine it would penetrate skin like it does the mucous membranes in your mouth.
Glad your husband is getting some sleep with the new meds.
Nice to see the sun today!

I had chemotherapy last year finishing in Nov. I had 6 cycles of cisplatin and etoposide. By December I had developed teeth and jaw pain. It comes and goes. I often find it worse in the car. The oncologist couldn't explain it.
I also have numbness in both feet which has slightly improved just recently.
Panadol doesn't see to lessen the teeth and jaw pain. I have found temporary relief using oil of cloves. 2 drops in olive oil and massage in to the gums and teeth.Try to be precise with where you put it because it causes numbness of the tongue as well. Don't put the oil of cloves on neat as it will irritate the skin. A heated wheat bag also relieves the discomfort temporarily.
I couldn't find any information on the Internet about it.
Where in the head is your husband getting pain?
Hope all goes well for him and that he gets some relief.
