Jaw pain times seven weeks

Been seeing dr shantz for years. But my latest experience has me leaving the pactice. I have had jaw pain for seven weeks went from specialists to specialists. Dr shantz who has not evaluated me for condition spoke to my oral surgeon decided to send me to pain management with no diagnosis. As I lay here jaw swollen yet again and more facial spasms I look at the medicines dr shantz called on without seeing me or evaluating my condition gabapatin for pain lol and 800mg Motrin for MILD pain. Mild pain as tears stream down my face. Wonderful. So again no diagnosis not been seen my PCP but being sent to pain management isn't that a band aid to the problem. Well thanks for attention and care to my medical needs ( she says with sarcasm).
