Is it possble that a toothache cause trigeminal neuralgia?

Is it possble that a toothache cause trigeminal neuralgia?

The opposite is true: "There is one disease of the Jaws which seems in reality to have no connection with the Teeth, but of which the Teeth are generally suspected to be the cause. As simple pain demonstrates nothing, a Tooth is often suspected, is perhaps drawn out; but still the pain continues, with this difference however, that it now seems to be in the root of the next Tooth". John Hunter (1778). It is true today. ...Read more

Pain started in ear now hurts in ear, jaw, teeth, neck, cheek, head on one side. Hurts same side when swallow. Trigeminal neuralgia?  possibilities?

Trigeminal anatomy: True trigeminal neuralgia is a sudden intense pain over a portion of the face lasting a few seconds at most, and likely immobilizing the victim. Your description suggests a different process, perhaps a TMJ, or dental issue such as an abscessed tooth. Start with your dentist first, and see if you can find answers. ...Read more

L subclavian vein stenosis not Tx. Left jaw,lip,ear etc turns pins&needles/numb whenswimming. trigeminal neuralgia too. ? Paraesthesia vascular. ? Why

Vein?: If the stenotic vein is severe enough to effect health, you would more likely have left sided pain, swelling in the arm, bluish tint to the fingers. Symptoms you're describing might be associated with a stenotic ARTERY (especially if there is "steal" syndrome). If it is the vein that has been stenotic, one can trust the decision not to treat, but could also expect spinal xray series or mri check ...Read more

Can any exercises that cause stress on the neck area trigger trigeminal neuralgia, or any positions that causes blood to rush to head?

Can any exercises that cause stress on the neck area trigger trigeminal neuralgia, or any positions that causes blood to rush to head?

Not believed so: TN is not believed to occur as the result of exercises placing stress on the neck nor positions which cause blood to "rush to the head." Some causes are DIRECT COMPRESSION of the nerve itself by a tumor, aneurysm, AVM, or blood vessel nicking the nerve. Surgeries, strokes, or MS can also cause damage to the myelin covering of the nerve causing pain. Need More info?www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi ...Read more

How can I recognize a trigeminal neuralgia from a cluster headache? I have pain only in the right part of the head, over the eye and behind.

How can I recognize a trigeminal neuralgia from a cluster headache? I have pain only in the right part of the head, over the eye and behind.

Very different: Both are nasty. The cluster headache awakens at night may last 30-60 minutes, be associated with unilateral eye reddening and tearing and nasal discharge. The neuralgia can occur many times daily is pain over face which is intense and immobilizing, duration 5-10 sec., and may occur several times daily. Have your doctor select a medicaiton to reverse this. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

My right lower&upper molar tooth pains if i eat/drink something, physically teeth look v good. Am i havin trigeminal neuralgia if yes how to treat it?

Looking good can be: Looking good can be deceptive. We as dentists often see teeth that "look good" until we take x-rays which reveal any one of a number of dental problems. Trigeminal neuralgia is not very common. You should see a dentist who can perform a clinical exam, take some x-rays and tell you what's causing your pain. ...Read more

Why wont doctor give me pain killers to have on hand for flare ups from trigeminal neuralgia gabapentin isn't enough!

My thots: Cannot answer your question regarding your doctor as you need to ask directly. However, i would wonder why you have "trigeminal neuralgia" as there is always a cause. Is it due to a neuroma, a compressive issue, or even multiple sclerosis? Many meds might work, including oxcarbezine, baclofen, lyrica, (pregabalin) etc. There is a simple needle/balloon procedure that some neurosurgeons employ. ?2nd opinion? ...Read more

Isn't there a test of some sort to tell if you've got trigeminal neuralgia?

No: Trig neuralgia is diagnosed based upon the history and the description of the pain. An MRI may show the loop of a blood vessel next to the trig nerve. This is thought to be the cause but you may still have tn even if the MRI does not show anything as the vessels are quite small. ...Read more
