Avatar n tn Hi, The one diagnosis which I can think of in your case is glossopharyngeal neuralgia but in this condition the pain/pressure can be quite severe. In this the pain begins in the throat and usually radiates to the neck and is due to the pressure on the glossopharyngeal nerve, a nerve which supplies to the tongue and the throat.
215220 tn?1191456864 Now I am stumped. Is this pain in my throat nerve pain? I have looked up glassopharengeal neuralgia. Seems to fit. What do you think? If so then what could cause this pain? Should I make an appointment with a Neurologist? No insurance so I would have to pay out of pocket. Want to make sure the neuro can help. I want this pain gone, NOW! Thank you.
215220 tn?1191456864 I don't have glassopharyngeal neuralgia, but I do have trigeminal neuralgia and occipital neuralgia (or what I think it occipital neuralgia--the sx fit exactly). Both came on around the same time that was the start of this current "flare" (I'm un-dx). Having a killer headache with TN was pretty crappy. Luckily neurontin seems to be helping both problems. Can you call a doctor for a script for the pain w/o going in?
Avatar f tn I am 48 years old and I periodically experience aching pain in my front lower teeth. It only happens at most a 2 or 3 times a year, but it has been happening since I was in my teens. Back then my mother used to say it was neuralgia. It usually only lasts a couple of days, but this time it has been bothering me for 4 days now. With this particular occurence, I have also been experiencing a tickle in my throat, but I guess it could be unrelated. I don't think it is TMJ.

Avatar f tn severe earache, toothache, pain to soft tissue around the neck and throat area,and the back of my head behind my left ear, pain travels from under my chin and up through the roof of my mouth and nose, the back of my eye and the top of my head. I have tingling to the side of my face and cheek.
Avatar n tn I saw an ENT doctor the next day and had an endoscopy of my sinuses and throat and nothing appeared to be irritated or abnormal. The throat pain is gone and the discomfort in my face is completely gone and the scalp discomfort is almost gone. The entire duration was 4-5 days. The MD i saw mentioned trigeminal neuralgia, but I am a nurse and I am not convinced that this is the correct diagnosis. Any ideas what this could be?
Avatar n tn next came the severe never ending pain throughout the entire ARMS. headahces, nausea, fatigue pain on other body parts, the the face tingling, which has now spread throughout, headaches also move. doctor has ruled out brain tumor (mri) carpel tunnel (neurologist - shock test) eye, ear, nose and throat specialist. i cry alot due to pain and the tigling scares me. i am moody and i get angry when the kids or anyone are too loud. help?
Avatar f tn Pain in the right ear, right jaw and in the back of right eye. No pain when eating. I googled (yep!) and it seems like glossopharyngeal neuralgia. I came across a story that said base of tongue cancer can cause this. I've been seeing an ENT who thinks it's LPR, but this right side business seems like it could something more sinister.

Avatar f tn Can eyewear earpieces cause neuralgia and pain behind the ear in the adenoidal area? I am not taking any medications or anything else at this time. I have just taken aspirin to make the pain go away.
Avatar n tn My symptoms started with a sharp pain in my throat upon dry swallowing and continuous pain in my left ear. An ENT ordered a barium swallow and CT scan with contrast of my neck. Findings were normal and I was told nothing serious was going on.
Avatar n tn I think if you had the trigeminal neuralgia the stomach pain(coeliac and lactose intolerant) and the scaro iliac joint dysfunction, throat pain and ear pain . Also diagnosed fibroids and kidney cyst you may look for a link! Thinking if may all be linked by fibromyalgia anyway. Hopefully that is all.

Avatar f tn This type of neuralgia is rare and is usually one sided. The pain can be felt in the ear, and even the throat, tongue, and tonsillar region. The pain can be triggered by various activities such as laughing, chewing, coughing, speaking, etc. The treatment is similar to that of trigeminal neuralgia. Medicines such as carbamazepine and phenytoin have had some success. Surgical decompression of the nerve is an option if the pain continues despite optimal medical treatment.
Avatar n tn I know someone who extracted 3 teeth because of severe pain in them. The doctor expected some kind of neuralgia before making an ECG and discovering severe ischemia of the heart. It’s better to make an ECG just to make sure that you are not having any problem with your heart. If everything is fine, he can advice you which specialist needs to be seen. Best of luck.

Avatar n tn ABOUT 6 - 9 MONTHS AGO I HAD THIS PAIN IN MY UPPER BACK BEHIND MY HEART THAT FELT SIMILAR TO A HEART ATTACK. THE PAIN RADIATES THRU MY BACK INTO MY CHEST AND UP SOMETIMES INTO MY THROAT. MY CHIROPRACTER ADJUSTED MY BACK AND TOLD ME THAT A RIB WAS OUT OF PLACE AND WAS PRESSING ON A NERVE CAUSING A CONDITION CALLED INCOASTAL NEURALGIA. I HAVE SINCE HAD THESE ATTACKS AND DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT. PLEASE ADVISE ME.
Avatar m tn I have atypical TN which includes pain in my upper row of teeth and gums. I have never had throat pain before but I know every case is different. I do have a knot on my right side lower jaw and just figured it was from tension. It doesn't seem to be a trigger point for me tho.
Avatar n tn my boyfriend is having very painful shocks in the right temple which has caused the whole right side of his face to be very sensitive to touch and it is now moving to his throat it has been 2 days now
Avatar n tn Would love to chat with him about this unilateral numbness, and throat pain he is experiencing. I have confused this pain for a long time with TMJ and now am researching geniculate neuralgia. If Ray gets this message, please contanct me by using my email address. This pain has really been a problem for about 6 years. I would love to feel normal on the left side of my face and head and throat as I do on the right side.
Avatar n tn There is a different form of neuralgia called glossopharyngeal neuralgia. It has a similar pain sensation as that of trigeminal neuralgia but in a different location. This type of neuralgia is rare and is usually one sided. The pain can be felt in the throat, tonsillar region, back of the tongue (not front), and even the ear and neck. The pain can be triggered by various activities such as laughing, chewing, coughing, speaking, etc. The treatment is similar to that of trigeminal neuralgia.
