Trigeminal Nerve And Migraines
Migraines: The function of the trigeminal nerve should remain normal in patients with migraines ( good facial sensation and good masseter muscle strength). However, it is the trigeminal nerve the main neural structure implied in the mechanism of migraine. A cascade of neuro-inflammatory response on the trigeminal nerve is what ultimately mediates the pain in migraine sufferers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more

Are both cluster headaches and migraines related to the trigeminal nerve? If so, how are they related? How does the trigeminal nerve affect one's head
Superb questions!: You are apparently young and smart. This could be a good research project for you. Cluster headache, like trigeminal neuralgia, produces what is called a "neuralgiform" pain syndrome (no space for details). Migraine is different. But both are neurological syndromes. The exact biological differences are poorly defined. "Cortical spreading depression" is more typical of migraine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Trigeminal nerve: 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 ("tic douloureux"), and often leads to a complaint of muscle pain. See a neurologist for evaluation, tests, imaging and treatment. ...Read more

Trigeminal Neuralgia: Has she has an MRI (rule out MS, or compressive pathology)? How was diagnosis made? This may be a debilitating condition, but she may achieve relief with certain medications (Tricyclics, anticonvulsants), injections or surgery as the surgeon (ENT or neurosurg) sees fit. Seek expert medical help for your wife. Her quality of life depends on it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
For migraine...: ...there are theories that the trigeminal nerve is involved. Maxalt (rizatriptan) works to decrease and stop abnormal firing and release of certain chemicals that cause the migraine pain. For the more typical trigeminal disease, trigeminal neuralgia, Maxalt (rizatriptan) does not have any effect because the mechanism of pain is different. Good question! ...Read more
Trigger?: Modify or decrease the trigger agent. Trigeminal nerve pain usually has a trigger; such as when brushing the teeth, brushing the face lightly, or air blowing on the face. Certain medications like Carbamazepine can assist in relieving the painful jolts. Surgery- microvascular decompression can also help in refractory cases. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
