Definitely, no: Cluster headaches are sometimes mistaken for trigeminal neuralgia because they have similar symptoms. However, there are a number of big differences between the two conditions.

Treatment with a medicine called carbamazepine usually works well to stop the pains. Surgery is an option if medication does not work, or if side-effects from the medicine ...Read more

Trigeminal neuralgia lasted only 1 day. can MS or brain tumor cause trigeminal neuralgia to last for 1 day?
Comments: You do NOT have trigeminal neuralgia, unless it recurs, as unfortunately, once it starts, it can be unbearably frequent. Do not think you have MS or a brain tumor if you had just one day of facial pain. But might see a dentist, and check for jaw or tooth issues. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not usually: Newer leading research indicates that it is an enlarged blood vessel - possibly the superior cerebellar artery - compressing or throbbing against the microvasculature of the trigeminal nerve near its connection with the pons. Such a compression can injure the nerve's protective myelin sheath and cause erratic and hyperactive functioning of the nerve. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
No: Similar symptoms but the trigeminal nerve is usually irritated by a different mechanism in trigeminal neuralgia. Most of the time it is irritated by a vascular loop. Often it will respond to medication like Carbamazepine or related anticonvulsants. There is a surgical treatment ( vascular decompression ) that is sometimes used when medication fails. TMJ is more akin to arthritis of the TM joint. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Cluster-Tic Syndrome: This term is used to describe patients with cluster headache and trigeminal neuralgia. In this syndrome, the characteristic paroxysmal pains of trigeminal neuralgia are superimposed over a cluster headache. In some cases, the two conditions occur independently for years and then meld together into a common syndrome. Cluster is part of trigeminal autonomic cephalgias. ...Read more

Nosebleeds: Nosebleeds are a common problem. There are multiple triggers. One of the most common is picking the nose. This happens in kids way more than in adults, but still occurs. Dryness is also very common. In cold climates, the colder it gets the less humid it becomes and this can lead to bleeding. Trauma, high blood pressure or bleeding disorders can lead to nosebleeds. Best to have an ENT look. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a brain tumor also trigeminal neuralgia . I'm planning on the brain surgrey tumor on the trigeminal neuralgia nerve. Can they remove the tnnerv?
Usually No: It sounds like you have a tumor (usually a meningioma or schwannoma) attached to the trigeminal nerve. This can cause the facial pain that you note. When surgery is done for this, the neurosurgeon can usually peel the tumor away from the nerve. Some fibers of the nerve can be sacrificed hopefully with minimal neurologic sequelae. This is a big nerve and it controls facial sensation and chewing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bilateral face itch (forehead, nose, nostrils, eyebrows, cheeks). Brain MRI= no compression of V nerve, no lesions, no MS. It's my anxiety related?
I'm mystified: I can't imagine why on earth someone would get a brain MRI looking for a cause of itching. CN nerve compression may cause numbness, weakness (of muscles of mastication) or pain, but never itching. Ditto MS or brain "lesions." Itching that is not psychogenically related is due to something in the skin. You need to see a dermatologist. The brain MRI was of no value here. ...Read more
