Dr suspects Supraorbital Neuralgia but how do I know it's not just a sinus issue? I'm not draining anything color just white thick mucus.
Imaging scan: One easy way to tell is to do a CT of the sinuses (MRI can also be done but might be overkill). If there is significant inflammation or buildup then sinusitis can still be a possibility. However, if you are a person with issues of chronic sinusitis, then the CT of the sinuses may not be very specific and may indicate a chronic non-symptomatic finding. ...Read more
Can Supraorbital Neuralgia cause naseau? Dr suspects this. Can SN go away without anything like Aleve?Does SN show up on MRI bran scan? Mine was clean
Can supraorbital Neuralgia be triggered by food or supplements I also get tiny tingly sensations around the eyes, cheeks, and sometimes lips sometimes?
No: I don't blame you for looking for answers, but you may have to reconcile yourself to the reality that modern medicine cannot (yet) provide an answer that satisfies you. We know what causes a myriad of diseases that were mysteries just a few years ago, but with many more we're not there yet. Your energy woild be better spent focusing on care (symptomatic relief) rather than cure. ...Read more
What's the difference btn sinus headache and supraorbital neuralgia? Dr suspects SN but I also suffer from sinus issues. All scans/mri's clean
"Sinus" headache?: I don't know where this popular myth of the "sinus" headache came from. I suspect it was invented by the makers of Dristan. 99% of people who think they have "sinus" headaches, don't, including, I'm pretty sure, you. Does "clean" scans mean normal sinuses? 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have neck bone spurs at C5/6 level. Can this trigger headaches at the eyebrow? Dr thinks it's Supraorbital Neuralgia. Sinus ct scans clean
C5/6 to low level: to effect eyebrow. If it was C1/2/3 then you can suspect of getting headache from it but still it would not reach that high, it would effect lower part of the head. Some sort of nerve inflammation going on with you but what ever it is should be much above of the C5/6. So, go with your doctor. ...Read more
TMJ: If its pure supraorbital neuralgia then usually not. However, TMJ issues can cause pain sometimes over the region of the supraorbital nerve distribution while at the same time causing pain over the temporal region - its a small over lap from the temporal to the supraorbital region. ...Read more
