Common Questions and Answers about Trigeminal neuralgia lesions

trigeminal-neuralgia

Dear Friend, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> Neuralgia is a really painful condition.However the lesion in your white matter may not linked with the same.If , after numerous MRI's nothing conclusive has been found about your brain's white matter lesions,then it's better to pause the things. However the alarming thing is the sporadic weakness in your legs.I would suggest you to get a MRI screening of the full back.Maybe it will reveal more findings rather than multiple brain MRI's. Let me know after your MRI is done.
The symptoms you are describing are not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> neuralgia. You need to have a neurologic examination performed to define what abnormalities are present. Then perhaps a MRI of the brain and cervical spine may be necessary to exclude structural lesions or inflammatory conditions. Other disorders which may be evalauted include connective tissue disorders and auto-immune disorders such as lupus. Good luck.
I have recently been diagnosed with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> neuralgia but my symptoms are not really like I have seen on the internet. I do not have sharp, cutting or electric like pains that last for a few seconds. I have a very painful aching sensation that will last for 1 hour or longer. I have been on carbamazepine 200 mg for 3 weeks and while the pain is a lot better I am still in almost constant aching pain. Is this normal and will the carbamazepine eventually work?
Is it possible that nerve regeneration takes this long and causes pain like this, or is this something I should be looking into and/or treating. I figured after 2 years, the nerve damage is permanent. My GP mentioned <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> neuralgia- I've been researching, but I want to know what's necessary to stop this.
An interesting aspect is that this form affects both men and women equally and can occur at any age, unlike typical <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> neuralgia, which is seen most commonly in women. Though TN and ATN most often present in the fifth decade, cases have been documented as early as infancy. http://en.wikipedia.
When researching what this is, it fits the description of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> Neuralgia. Bit concerned cause it says this is symptom of MS. I swear when I get the worries of MS out of my head another symptom pops up and makes me worry again. Does anyone else get this? Can lyme do this? Thanks.
I was diagnosed with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> neuralgia 8/10.had a MVD performed 1/11. after surgery my neuro told me that a vein had fully bonded to the nerve as well as a thckening of my archanoid membrane which had wrapped around the nerve as well. He killed the nerve and removed what membrane he could. ever since surgery most of the sharp electrical pains were gone and i woud occasiony geta little zing or ping in my face along the trigeminal pathway.
There are differences between <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> 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.
I am a 34yr old female who recently developed left sided <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> neuralgia (TN). I was seen by a neurologist who wanted to put me on an antiepileptic drug. I really don't want to take this drug because of the side effects and have been told by multiple people that these drugs make you into a "zombie" and that is not acceptable for my job. I got a MRI and it came back "normal." A few days after my MRI, my TN went away. One and a half months later, it has come back.

I am a 31 year old female who has been diagnosed with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> neuralgia, however I don't think this is what it is. Approximately one year ago, out of the blue, I began have dizzy spells along with severe tingling in my head (top,sides,and forehead). I went to the emergency room where they discoverd that I had an acute sinus infection. The emergency room physician thought that this could be the cause of my sypmtoms. I followed up with my regular doctor who then referred me to an ENT.
Yesterday my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> neuralgia flared up. It's been a while, thank heavens! It's always been on my upper left jaw area; for years I thought it was a dental issue, even had a unnecessary crown put on years ago. Anyway, this time the pain isn't limited to it's usual area. It's still on the left side, but it extends up over my forehead. I have an area on my scalp that is too painful to touch; I had a hard time getting to sleep last night because of it.
I had shingles about 3 years ago which affected my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> nerve. No actual <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lesion</span>s broke out but I was treated with Acyclovir and Valtrex and had an MRI to rule out any other problems. I have a lot of pain that feels like it is deep down in my right ear and was just wondering if this might get better.
Every couple of months I ask a question about Paratrigeminal Neuralgia (Raeder's Syndrome) in the hopes that someone out there will respond with personal knowledge about this painful syndrome. So far I have had no luck but I figure it's worth a try again! So is there anyone out there that either has this syndrome or know someone that has it? I was diagnosed with it in February 2007 and have yet to speak to anyone else with it!
Is it possible that this is related to demyelination? Is this what's known as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> neuralgia? Is it worth scheduling an appointment with a neurologist? Thanks for your assistance.

Thanks for your assistance. ========================================================== Dear Julie: Episodic pain around the ear area could be due to so called trigeminal neuralgia, but other possibilities such as ear infection should be ruled out. The association between trigeminal neuralgia and multiple sclerosis has been described.
She diagnosed me with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> Neuralgia. From what I've read about that, the pain with TN seems to be more in the face and mine is more in and around my ear. When I have it, I can't even touch my head on the left side. It used to last for only an hour or so, now it lasts for days at a time. A MRI was done about a year ago (without dye) and was normal.
some tingling and burning sensations in my lower legs. Oh, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> neuralgia which isn't fun. Besides the face pain, everything has been subtle and not worth reporting. I've always attributed other nuisance symptoms to other things. While trigeminal neuralgia can be a symptom of MS, it's rarely the first one, so it's going to be a matter of seeing what happens. Hopefully my face will feel better and that will be the end of it.
I have recently had an MRI for consideration of Microvascular Decompression surgery for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> Neuralgia pain uncontrolled by mediciations. My MRI did not show any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> mass or abnormal enhancement, but showed one deep white matter lesion on the left parietal lobe, with early chronic microvascular ischemic disease a possibility. Can that be a cause of the trigeminal pain or are these two separate findings?
I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> neuralgia for 10 years now. In the beginning it took me ages and numerous doctors, dentists etc.. Finally I got admitted to a hospital and an ENT doctor came in and said that is what I have. It hurts so bad some days, others I can live with it. Keep going until you get your answer. I just recently got my 14yo daughter out of Australia to the USA to be with me.. In Australia they got told she had a bone prob in her cheek.
Does this sound like it could be something like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> neuralgia? It doesn't seem like anything provokes it, but I'm not sure if I'm describing the pain in a way that would be useful to the neurologist.
Atypical <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> Neuralgia posted by Barbara Atkinson on April 22, 1998 at 11:35:28: Hi Barbara, your story is almost identical to mine. My main question is: If a nerve has been damaged in the dental office , would MVD be the procedure of choice! There are to many Failed MVD's Out there. Bad Neurosurgeons?? Misdiagnosis? Wrong Surgical Procedures? Who lknows. It is up to the Pain patient to research and research.. Many of these DOC's do not know what they are dealing with. .
They use this also to rule out any tumors or lesions that may be causing the pain. Keep posting. God Bless You. Barbara I've suffred from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> Neuralgia for nearly thirty years and have taken tegretol, 1600mgs per day for most of that time. I understand there are several procedures for dealing with this complaint.
I have almost same problems as you and my doctor is a MS specialist too. I have definite <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trigeminal</span> and occipital neuralgia (for more than 20 years now) along with being tired, severe vision problems and so on. my mri has come out clean always. And my doctor's advice was to stop stress, cleanse my system, and figure out what worsens my pain. i quit my job, do not do anything that aggravates my pain, started running, feel good with running most of the time, except during cold weather.
