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 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 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 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.

All the ENT specialist and medical specialist tells that there is no problem with her throat ,nose and ear.They think that it may be a nerve pain .but they are not sure. It happened with her 7 years before in 2003 but after it never happen .
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.
Avatar f tn I have been dealing with pain in my mouth, jaw, ear, and throat since Nov. 2011. So far I have seen my normal doctor, a neurologist, my dentist, and an ENT. My normal doctor couldn't say for certainty what was the issue is the neurologist says trigeminal neuralgia and the ENT says TMJ. The pain is horrible and is daily. Where my mouth hurts there isn't even a tooth there!
373367 tn?1246402035 Back in January, I got extremely numb on my left side and lost feeling inside my throat on the left side. I also started having periodic ear pain. A few weeks ago, I got really numb on my right side and had a black dot in my vision briefly and lost feeling inside my throat on the right side. So, I went a few weeks without feeling in my throat. A few days ago, I got excited because I got feeling back in both sides.....then later that day it turned into pain on the left side and left ear.
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 m tn it used to not be so constant and now everytime i suffer from one of the attacks the pain in my ear is usually present, i have my second and third ramification of the nerve affected, and i dont have too many symptoms to my eye, but my ear usually suffers from a stabbing deep pain, and sometimes i cant swallow well since i feel as if my throat is not in control as if its numb. Offcourse my head hurts, and cant be touched as well as moving my head in any direction usually increases my symptoms.
1385138 tn?1279928966 Following 2 MVA's and treated for a head and neck injury was adjusted by a chiropractor 15 months ago and have had unilateral facial edema 3 x weekly with reddness of the cheek area on occassion.It is exacerbated with chores, typing and walking dogs. I was placed on several seizure neds and presently on Epitol which seems to help, I have had negative MRI, and MRA's for lesions or tumors.
Avatar n tn Hi, probably it is occipital neuralgia, though other possibility is tension headache. Occipital neuralgia is a chronic pain disorder caused by irritation or injury to the occipital nerve located in the back of the scalp. Individuals with the disorder experience pain originating at the nape of the neck. The pain, often described as throbbing and migraine-like, spreads up and around the forehead and scalp.
Avatar f tn 3 months ago I had for 2 weeks every day episodes of right ear pain and pharynx pain .No infection an nasal endoscopy was normal.After 3 weeks without pain ,Ihad again pain for 2-3 hours,and again 3 weeks normal,and 2-3 days with episodic pain.MRI of brain and neck (with contrast)is normal.Yesterday night I had for 1 minut left tongue pain(not right).Could it be bilateral Glossopharingeal neuralgia?What must I check?
Avatar m tn Signs and symptoms of glossopharyngeal neuralgia include very short bouts of severe pain that recur very frequently. The pain is usually located somewhere in the mouth or throat. Stimulation of those areas may trigger the pain. Pls visit an ENT specialist/Neurologist for a confirmatory diagnosis and treatment will depend on the same. An MRI of the brain/Ear region may help. In case you need any more information, please post us. Take Care. Kind Regards.
1098081 tn?1257446602 I was just diagnosed with Glossopharyngeal Neuralgia yesterday. I turn 40 on November 15th. The pain is unbelievable when it comes on, and unfortunately I have a very difficult time taking pain medications as they make me very ill & drowsy beyond belief. I have had 2 MRI's, a Fine Cut CT Scan, met with an Otolaryngologist and a Neurologist. We now know that I have this rare neuralgia condition. I have been prescribed Nortriptyline which I am to take daily.
Avatar f tn Hello, Glossopharyngeal neuralgia is a condition in which there are repeated episodes of severe pain in the tongue, throat, ear, and tonsils, which can last from a few seconds to a few minutes. Medical treatment is only for symptoms.The root cause lies in the nerve ,so decompression surgery or suboccipital craniectomy with exploration of the glossopharyngeal nerve are the preffered treatments. Hope it helps.
Avatar f tn I am a 51 year old woman suffering from vagal glossopharyngeaal neuralgia (its much like Trigeminal Neuralgia but much less common. The pain comes from irritation of the 9th and 10th cranial nerves) My pain has become nearly constant and spikes whenever I am talking, eating, riding in a car. Neurotin, Tegratal, and Lyrica do not help. I have seen four neurosurgeons. The concensus seems to be that I need skull base surgery to cut the 9th nerve and a couple strands of the 10th.
Avatar n tn The most likely cause for pain along the jaw - if you have ruled out dental pain - is, indeed, Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN). The pain of TN can be one of the most severe pains known. This usually indicates an MS lesion somewhere from the brainstem to along the Trigeminal nerve which is one of the Cranial nerves. It usually is severe stabbing pains which come with some sort of stimulation.
Avatar n tn Hi, I had been diagnosed with glossopharyngeal neuralgia in 2006. I had a sharp stabbing, electrifying pain in my throat region that was felt upon swallowing, coughing, drinking, eating and talking. After dealing with my PCP for several weeks, I insisted to be seen by an ENT. He diagnosed my situation as glossopharyngeal neuralgia. I was put on gabapentin twice a day and it helped for a while although I had break through pain.
