Can Nerve Pain Be Seen On Mri
I have found out I got nerve pain but I am still waiting for an MRI to see what's causing the pain have u got and advice for me how to ease the pain?
Vague: I would consult the dr. That ordered your mri. Can't just start prescribing meds without hopefully determining a source of your problem. You might try warm water aerobics/baths/etc. Or stretching, but hard to make any educated advice without even knowing where the nerve pain is located. ...Read more

Spine evaluation: It sounds like you had imaging ordered by a specialist. I encourage you to follow up with a specialist in spine surgery for a full history and physical exam.

Worse with standing. ...Read more

If so, you DON'T have sinus "issues." You should eliminate the "sinus" headache from your thinking unless a doctor tells you different. ...Read more

Can Supraorbital Neuralgia affect the sinus area? Dr suspects SN. A dull ache right above the right eyebrow. No migraines. MRI brain scan clean.
The frontal sinuses: Behind the eyebrows so it is possible. Make sure you are not getting referred pain patterns that could originate in the neck by the atlas (C1) as often it does refer to eyebrow pain. Get a second opinion from an osteopathic doctor too to correlate the findings. The osteopathic adjustment can help clear sinuses, and referred pain. Anything residual will be some other diagnosis that warrants workup. ...Read more
