Common Questions and Answers about Trigeminal neuralgia wisdom tooth

trigeminal-neuralgia

1 year ago I've made a wisdom tooth operation for my right down wisdom. The operation took around 2 hours because there was a cyst around it and when they removed the cyst there was lots of blood after it. The wisdom was very strong and the operation was not easy. After 1 month pain started a light needle stabbing. Doctors 1st couldn't know what it is but after 2 months a doctor told me its a Trigeminal neuralgia or what is known by facial pain.
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.
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 live a problem with the teeth or something more sinister?
Also, sometimes my scalp hurts and it feels bruised, but mostly it's in my head. I have had a small wisdom tooth extracted to see if that was causing the problem, but no change. I have done everything from taking advil to tylenol, fiornal, and even tyleno 3, but the only thing that seems to help is the methacin. I get little relief throughout the day, but it seems like nothing is working. Does anyone know or have the same symptons as me and what do you do for it? Please help.
Hi, Thank you for your question. 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.
2wks ago, I got lower wisdom extraction and since then the pain is getting worse; now I have dry socket syndrome and trigeminal neuralgia with numbness, ear pain, and severe headache... Do I need to continue taking pain med (oxycodine) and wait until the time helps to heal it or do I insist on calling her again? My oral surgeon is unpolite, and I am not sure about going back to see her again.
I can't take it any more it hurt so bad all I can do is cry. Please help me P.s I don't have any insurance it is my wisdom tooth I think.

Is it normal or i am developing trigeminal neuralgia? PLEASE HELP.
Someone mentioned that this sounded like Trigeminal Neuralgia (which is common in MS, but also occurs on its own). When I saw a picture of the cranial nerves and the path that the Trigeminal nerve (or Fifth Nerve) follows, I did think it matched very closely the areas where I experience pain. I did also mention the cheekbone/ear/jaw/teeth pain to the rheumatologist when discussing my symptoms and he said, "Hmmm, sounds like T2.
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.
Hence it could be Trigeminal neuralgia, abscess in tooth, exposed root canal, internal ear infection, maxillary sinusitis, TMJ, migraine, herpes (recurrent) without rash or fibromyalgia localized to face. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do consult your doctor. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

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.
type thing above the hole there. IT was not a wisdom tooth... it was #14 (3rd from front) and it was an old root canal, abscessed, and pulled 8 weeks ago. The pain is the same... stems from above it, goes up my nose (left side) and to temple... WHAT is this bony thing that i can literally tap on above my gum line? I can run my fingernail over it from side to side... almost like another tooth was there! But, there shouldn't be anything! Anyone? Thoughts?
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. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.
I should probably have the second tooth pulled, which could be the culprit and give up on the trigeminal neuralgia treatment? This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/492647'>EXTREME Sensitivity 5 weeks after all wisdom teeth removed</a>.
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.
I have serached the web, and it seems like everyone experience different kinds of pain after tooth extraction or for Trigeminal neuralgia. I would appreciate any comments.

They can also cause ear numbness that spreads to face. Since you also have a sore throat with upper repiratory infection these possibilities should be looked into.
