Atypical facial pain and neck shoulder back pain

Nov 22, 2014 1:43 PM


I was diagnosed with atypical facial pain, which means very little really, and was on pregabalin plus other painkillers for about 9 months.

I had about a year off and it has since kicked off again. This time however it is in right hand side of my face (as usual) my whole back of head is tender and painful, and I had tendersness and heavy muscle aches and tightens down my right hand side back, neck, shoulder and arm.

Could this be related to the starting up pregabalin, or an extension of the facial pain I typically experience?
