Common Questions and Answers about Trigeminal neuralgia fever

trigeminal-neuralgia

I have Trigeminal Neuralgia,,,I also was diagnosed with MS. I am now in LD treatment., and TN is a very common symptom of LD...funny that it also affects those with MS. My MS doc prescribed a seizure med that didn't help me,,, my lyme doc on the other hand prescribes antibiotics and for the first time my TN is improving. The abx brings the TN back, but for shorter periods...this "revisiting of symptoms " is how we know we are getting better.
There are differences between trigeminal neuralgia and Paratrigeminal Neuralgia one being that I do not feel pain if something touches my face. Now I don't know what classifies you as having "atypical trigeminal neuralgia." I do have a request for information in with a Dr. Kauffman in Manitoba who deals specifically with the "Neuralgia's" and I am hoping to hear from him in the next week or so.
If it is trigeminal neuralgia than the Lyrica should help. Twice a day , in 12h interval s, 75 mg in my experience kills it. There is another killer: GABApentin which actually works on the same biochemical route. In my case it was less effective.
I have been diagnosed with Chronic Cluster Headaches and Trigeminal Neuralgia. I also have frequent bouts with fever blisters. I have severe pain in the temple area and behind my eye on one side. I also have severe shock-like pain that runs across cheek to nose and my upper teeth on that side feel like they will fall out because it hurts so bad. I have trigger points, one being when I brush my teeth or touching my face.

I have a friend that has diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia he was prescribed pain medication for the severe headaches he gets. My question is could the medication cause him to have a fever and chills?

Then large lumps under arm began, antibiotics did not work and had allergic reaction. Regular doc referred me to a neurologist who diagnosed trigeminal neuralgia and prescribed anti-seizure and anti-depressant. Had MRI and EEG. Tests showed nothing. So now I am not sure what to do, I am 23 and can't live the rest of my life like this. The pain wakes me up at night and I have very bad head aches. What is the next step to take? Any similar stories?
As for the Neurontin (Gabapentin), it can work in Trigeminal Neuralgia though often not as effectively as Tegretol. It can be sedating, an effect which many get used too. Before stopping the drug, I would ask your doctor about starting it slowly and increasing the dose gradually to avoid over-sedation. Other drugs such as Liorosil (Baclofen) have also been used for Trigeminal Neuralgia, but each drug tried should be given a proper attempt at increasing it to a full efficacious dose.
I've experienced Trigeminal Neuralgia on and off for years, the atypical sort mostly, with some real zaps and zings and extended pains that made me whimper. Now that the headaches are gone, I can write and ask about them. A couple weeks ago, I started having some truly horrible headaches, nothing like the few migraines I've had in the past. I had no more than my usual stuffiness caused by allergies and side effects from Avonex, so it didn't seem to be a sinus headache.
I picked up some kind of viral upper respiratory infection when we came back from the UK. Plane crud or something. I'm into my second week of chest tightness with a dry non-productive cough. I'm guessing viral bronchitis. It has been tolerable to this point, but now I have a temp that is just a bit above my normal 99.6. Not really even a fever, but enough that the right side of my face just "lit up" (not in a good way.
In my face and head. Trigeminal neuralgia. Rsd nd chronic migrains thats just my head.
I am 29 and now on a waiting list to receive Microvascular Decompression to treat Trigeminal Neuralgia.Will there be much pain after the opperation? as i have children age 2 and 4 to care for when i return home.
Hi, There are a few possibilities here which need to be looked in to like TMJ or Temporomandibular joint dysfunction, sinusitis, ear infections and trigeminal neuralgia and dental abscess. TMJ is seen in people who are in the habit of chewing gum or who clench their teeth in the night. Sinusitis can cause pain behind the ear and eyes and is usually accompanied by a runny nose and congestion. Trigeminal neuralgia causes sharp shooting pain in the temple region, in the face and around the eyes.
Differentials will be a migraine headache, trigeminal neuralgia, occipital neuralgia, carotidynia and tension headaches. Trigeminal neuralgia is associated with a severe pain over the temples, the cheeks ,and over the jaw.The pain may be debilitating and may be aggravated by light touch , brushing the teeth or combing your hair. Carotidynia may be pain over the neck and temples. There are a few types and they may be due to an underlying viral infection.
Hi, Trigeminal neuralgia may be a likely cause for your condition.Another differential would be carotidynia which is sharp pain over temples and neck. Trigeminal neuralgia may be idiopathic ( most cause unknown) although infections were attributed to lead to the condition. With a history of chronic migraine, these new onset headaches may still be migraine in a more severe presentation For complete assessment a consult with a neurologist will help in excluding more serious underlying causes.
Your symptoms may be most likely due to trigeminal neuralgia as you have typical one sided facial pain extending to temple and eye( ophthalmic branch of trigeminal nerve may be involved) and sore gums of the teeth of same side (maxillary branch of 5th nerve). Trigeminal neuralgia may have a triggering factor like recent history of tooth extraction, touch, cold breeze or hot sensation etc. which you need to evaluate and avoid.
I just found out that I do have Trigeminal Neuralgia. I have the same symptons you have and I have researched this many people have unneccesary procedures done on their teeth thinking its that. I would recommend before you undergo the root canal seeing a Neurologist and having them do a MRI they will be able to see if its the Trigeminal Neuralgia by this test. I hope this helps, I know how frustrating this can be and also how painful it is. Please let me know what happens.
Hi, Thank you for your question. This may be Trigeminal neuralgia as you have typical one sided facial pain extending to temple (head) and eye( ophthalmic branch of trigeminal nerve may be involved) and sore gums of the teeth of same side (maxillary branch of 5th nerve). Trigeminal neuralgia may have a triggering factor like recent history of tooth extraction, touch, cold breeze or hot sensation etc. which you need to evaluate and avoid.
I think this can be trigeminal neuralgia pain. What I feel you are suffering from is trigeminal neuralgia, in which pain is distributed along the course of nerve on face. The Pain which is severe in nature, stabbing type, lasting for few seconds to minute and which has a triggering factor to it describes pain of trigeminal neuralgia. Physical examination of the patient is normal. Hope this helps. Bye.
If you are older than 50 you should be evaluated for temporal arteritis - because your symptoms are somewhat suggestive of that possibly. You could also have some sort of trigeminal neuralgia or severe sinusitis or other severe infection. Honestly, I am cvery oncerned about your symptoms and advise that you see your physician right away or if not available, you should go to walk-in clinic or emergency room right away. These symptoms are worrisome.
) All these symptoms could be related and there could even be some type of syndrome like trigeminal neuralgia (seventh nerve pain) or cranial arteritis or something like that. You have some worrisome symptoms, make sure they are properly evaluated by the right specialists.
Sometimes, nerve pain joins the party, too, like last year when my Trigeminal Neuralgia flared up, or that little segment of nerve in my left thumb muscle that just burns and burns. Nothing like gland pain, though....
The symptoms you are describing bear resemblance to few possibilities like facial nerve palsy, trigeminal neuralgia MPDS( myofacial pain dysfunction) and then TMJ disorder due to strenuous opening of mouth for long sittings of RCT.
So I came upon a rare, little known diease related to trigeminal neuralgia called glossopharyngeal neuralgia. It is an irritaion or compression of another major brain nerve, that characteristically causes sharp pain OR severe throbbing pain at the back of the throat and in the middle ear. The glossopharyngeal neuralgia can be caused by a compressed nerve, a demylinated nerve, an infected nerve, or other causes.
I believe these are referred to as trigeminal neuralgia, or (tic douloureux). In your case, here are some things you may want to consider: first, this problem may be related to poor fitting dentures (if you wear them); dental carries or impacted wisdom teeth in the lower jaw (sending referred pain throughout this nerve); second, as suggested in the doctors answer, it is perhaps more likely related to a viral infection or a latent virus reactivation (something you may know as shingles).
Hello everybody. I need a second opinion. I experience everyday trigeminal neuralgia like pain attacks in my head and face on the left side. It all started around Christmas time. I had fever everyday , torticolis, mild ptosis and headaches on the left side- they were severe but not even close to these ones now. That took for some time and I was undiagnosed until they thought i had sinusitis and gave me 4 weeks of antibiotics- but on the end they said it was probably not sinusitis.
