Confused Trigeminal Neuralgia vs Dental Pain

Hi All - I've recently be diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia by my GP. I was having pain in my lower left gum near the back molars and went to visit the dentist. He took and x-ray and could find anything to be concerned about. After this the pain went away.. only to come back a few weeks later, but worse. The pain had travelled from my back tooth and gum, to my jaw, ear and left hand side of my face. The pain would last for a few minutes and be quite intense, but then stop suddenly. I had a MRI, which came back normal. I am taking Endep and it seems to be helping, but I still have a numb feeling in the back tooth. At this stage, do I go back to the dentist for a second opinion or should I just accept that this is TN and keep taking Endep? Has anyone else found a cause?
