I have a severe disease called Trigeminal Neuralgia that affects the 5th cranial nerve of the brain. This disease is also called the suicide disease due to the EXTREME pain that occurs on 1 side of your face. It is the most painful disease known to man. I have had 2 brain surgeries to try to help the pain, you see...there is no cure. Opiates don't relieve the pain either. Recently I have developed a severe case of ice chewing! I am not anemic. I was told by a hospital nurse once that damaged nerves in the face and head can cause ice chewing.
Anyone else have nerve damage?
