trigeminal-neuralgia

Hi raquel Yes I also have a history of trigeminal neuralgia which got started after I went to a dentist for cleaning my teeth. My case was very special since it started @ a age of 18 and i had only mild attacks. My pain stopped within 6 months. I started with 900 mg of carbamazepine daily and today after 10 years i just take 100 mg once in a week. Now I don't have any pain attaks.
Has anyone had any experience with TMJ or Trigeminal Neuralgia? If so, please chime in. I don't want to be on any medications that could possibly make me gain weight. I have read that most of the treatments for TN have a side effect of weight gain.
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.
This summer I was overseas and one of the doctors suggested that it might be trigeminal neuralgia. I started taking Tygretol. First, taking even one pill (200 mg) helped. I was really happy though after Tygretol my face feels kind of numb and I have some other side effects. After about a month I had to increase the dosage to two pills as one pill was not working anymore. After another month to three pills. And now to four. This is kind of scary.
This may be 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.
Traumatic trigeminal neuropathy is generally not associated with trigeminal neuralgia. However, both entities may be responsive to pharmacologic intervention. Seeing a neurologist or orofacial pain specialist misadvised.
The symptoms may be secondary to trigeminal neuralgia. The trigeminal nerve supplies sensation to the face. After surgical procedures on the face or teeth this nerve can sometimes become irritated. This results is severe lacinating pain. This condition is typically treated with anti-epileptics such as carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine, or gabapentin (Neurontin). You should discuss this possibility with the neurologist.
My teeth have been neglected for years and I maybe have trouble with my wisdom teeth. I have an appointment very soon but I am worried. When I researched the symptoms I came back with Trigeminal neuralgia does this sound possible? What are some tell tale ways to separate the two? And last but not least doses this sound like a problem with the teeth or something more sinister?
I took the drug you're on when I was first diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia -- it did not work for me. The next doctor I saw said it was not strong enough and gave me the generic form of Trileptol. We slowly increased the dosage until I was taking 600 mg - 3 times a day before the pain stopped.
Several nights ago my upper jaw hurt so bad that I called my dentist asking for an emergency visit, and said I believed I might have an impacted wisdom tooth. I knew this sounded crazy, because I've had my wisdom teeth removed 27 years ago. So the next day I had a panoramic X-ray done....and sure enough, I have an impacted wisdom tooth!!! Undoubtedly, this was infected several months ago, causing infection to get into my sinus cavities.
How old are you? Firstly, yes dental procedures especially of molar tooth might cause trigeminal neuralgia. What I feel you might be 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.
When I eat anything acidic, the anterior 2/3rds of my tongue burn (only on the left side) I have 2 Trigeminal Neuralgia from(Primary care/facial nerva specialist), Atypical/Secondary Trigeminal Neuralgia diagnosis (primary care Dr), and am curious what trigeminal neuropathy is or if anesthesia dolorosa applies in this situation. I've researched and everything is blending together, overlapping symptoms.
Your symptoms may be due to Trigeminal neuralgia as you have typical one sided facial/forehead pain extending to temple, jaw and eye( ophthalmic branch of trigeminal nerve may be involved) and wisdom teeth is coming of same side (maxillary branch of 5th nerve). Trigeminal neuralgia may have a triggering factor like recent history of tooth pain/extraction, touch, cold breeze or hot sensation etc. which you need to evaluate and avoid.
Hi My name is Sharon, 38 years of age. 3 years ago, I have had teeth wisdom removal. During the procedure the mandibular nerve ( in the left bottom side in my mouth - teeth no 37 ) was damaged badly- I need to take very strong medicines and still suffer from pain, burn, lack of taste etc. About a year ago,I started to feel strong pain attacks above the upper lip ( under the nose ). and the pains were diagnosed as trigeminal neuralgia.
Next I had one of the teeth pulled and I'm still in severe pain taking large amounts of pain pills. Now I'm being treated for trigeminal neuralgia by a Neurologist and have had one shot to deaden the trigeminal nerves. This did not work and now I have severe migraines along with the same original facial jaw pains. I'm essentially bed ridden. What should I do? My thoughts are that this started with what should have been a simple replacement of old fillings.

It can also be due to trigeminal neuralgia due to pressure on the trigeminal nerve as comes near the surface on the face. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examination. Please consult an orthopedic specialist. Hope this helps. Do let me know if there is any thing else and keep me posted. Take care!
Hello I had my wisdom teeth (two upper ones and one lower one) extracted 20 days ago. Three days after, I experienced shooting pain behind my ear and my dentist said it was dry socket although he said it didn't look so bad. He packed the socket with medicated packet, but it didn't help with pain until about 3 days after.
I banged my head very hard about a week and a half prior to this - could it have something to do with this? Can wisdom teeth cause this problem as that is what i was told by one person but i have not been having any problems in the dental area so not sure if this would explain it.
On November 27, 2009, almost three months ago, I got all 4 wisdom teeth removed. I am a 15 year old girl, and I am still experiencing severe numbness in my lower lip and chin on both sides. Not only am I constantly aware of it, but I am experiencing a lot of pain. It hurts whenever it is moved or touched, more so when a lot of pressure is put on it. I experience random sharp pains as well even when it is not moved or touched.

Common cold, sinusitis, ear infection, sensory nerve compression, peripheral neuropathy as in diabetes, inflamed wisdom tooth, impacted wisdom tooth, dental caries, etc can all cause facial numbness and pain. Hemi facial numbness is also seen in Bell’s palsy, trigeminal neuralgia where a spasm may cause numbness, or due to acoustic neuroma which is a benign tumor of the eighth cranial nerve. Maybe the accidental injury aggravated any of the above reasons.
Based on information provided, your descriptions suggest trigeminal neuralgia or trigeminal neuropathy. Seeing an orofacial pain specialist or neurologist is advised.
Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) can cause tooth pain on the upper and lower jaws. Oh, and you can treat trigeminal nueragia and atypical facial pain with: (wait for it) Baclofen !! Sorry for the joking, but really,,,, this is something you should conside contacting your Neurologist about. Baclofen is a second line drug that can be used to TN. The first line drug is Tegretol. Impacted wisdom teeth would show up on an x-ray and trismus.
Hi, You wouldn't have implants to replace wisdom teeth. I had my four upper front teeth removed and had implants placed right after. I have been using a removable metal partial while the implants heal. I do feel that the partial was irritating the nerve in my lower jaw by hitting those teeth. My dentist made a small adjustment and the pain has greatly lessened. I still get a few little electric like jolts but nothing like before.
