See a neurologist: The most common form of paroxysmal orofacial pain is trigeminal neuralgia. Typically, a pain attack is accompanied by tic-like cramps or involuntary spasms of the facial muscles. Neurological examination and imaging (CT. MRI) are essentially normal. See a neurologist or orofacial pain specialist for final diagnosis.
