Trigeminal neuralgia weather

Common Questions and Answers about Trigeminal neuralgia weather


Avatar n tn Hi, trigeminal neuralgia is lesion or inflammation of trigeminal nerve which is fifth cranial nerve which is responsible for sending sensory data of pressure, temperature, and pain. It is also responsible for the motor function of the muscles of mastication, the muscles involved in chewing. Treatment involves prescription of carbamazepine(tegretol), oxcarbazepine, topiramate, phenytoin, or gabapentin etc.
Avatar n tn Trigeminal neuralgia is a relapsing/remitting headache disorder. After reviewing the literature quickly, there was one study performed in the 1950's which stated that 50% of patients were symptom free by 6 months and 24% by 1 year. In general, all patients will relapse at some point. This is assuming that you have idiopathic trigeminal nerualgia (meaning then could not identify a cause). Seeing a neurologist is wise. They will be able to evaluate you and rule out known causes of TN. Good luck.
1475492 tn?1332887767 An interesting aspect is that this form affects both men and women equally and can occur at any age, unlike typical trigeminal 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.
Avatar n tn 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 trigeminal neuralgia- I've been researching, but I want to know what's necessary to stop this.
Avatar m tn I have Trigeminal Neuralgia. I have had MVD surgery on both sides yet it returned on one side. I have been told by several dr's that there is no pain management for it and that surgery to sever the nerve is all that can be done. I am currently highly medicated and struggling to work. Please let me know if any meds anyone has found succesful. I have tried, amitriptylene, neurontin, toradol, dilaudid, dilantin, oxcarbazapine, and more!
Avatar n tn I read the response posted to a question regarding trigeminal neuralgia and its relationship to head trauma. The response was that any such relationship was "very rare." However, as a neurologist with over 15 years experience, I have seen many cases of trigeminal neuralgia following head trauma.
Avatar f tn I have been told that I have trigeminal neuralgia type 2 or atypical. Just last night I was coming down with a migraine so I took a imitrex. The burning pain in my upper and lower teeth went away. Could this possibly be facial migraines and not TN?
Avatar f tn With the Trigeminal Neuralgia is is lots of pain for me. It feels like my skin in on fire and shooting pain in on the side of my cheek, up towards the temple and near my jaw. Is this an MS related symptom? I have had this for years, and have always associated it with cold sores in my mouth. I have had the pain, and not the cold sore, but always thought somehow it was part of that virus.
Avatar f tn I'm fairly new to Trigeminal Neuralgia and trying to learn my triggers so I can try to avoid them. I also have MS, am otherwise healthy. I'm curious to know if TN can be triggered by sudden, very loud sounds in an enclosed area. I've been to two rock concerts lately that have set my TN off. Also, last week I was under a fire alarm when it suddenly started blaring; the piercing sound also triggered my TN.
215220 tn?1191460464 I have been diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia. I believe I also have Glassopharyngeal Neuralgia. It is so painful I want to cry. It usually goes away after a few days. Well this didn't. I have had problems while speaking in the past. The pain sometimes happened only when I talk. I constantly have to stop talking for a day or two. I keep getting hoarse, very gravelly. If I talk while lying down the pain starts and I get hoarse very quickly. I can feel a certain spot that it comes from.
Avatar n tn As for the Neurontin (Gabapentin), it can work in Trigeminal Neuralgia though often not as effectively as Tegretol. It can be sedating, an effect which many get used too. Before stopping the drug, I would ask your doctor about starting it slowly and increasing the dose gradually to avoid over-sedation. Other drugs such as Liorosil (Baclofen) have also been used for Trigeminal Neuralgia, but each drug tried should be given a proper attempt at increasing it to a full efficacious dose.
Avatar n tn I was labeled with Atypical Trigeminal Neuralgia about two years ago after years of bouncing around between dentists, doctors, and oral surgeons. Symptoms are a constant, intense, dull aching pain accompanied by varying amounts of swelling in the left maxilla area. Also present is constant sinus congestion on the left side (allergies have been ruled out), which when treated, results in new experiences in pain with each breath.

2094545 tn?1335121331 I have almost same problems as you and my doctor is a MS specialist too. I have definite trigeminal 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.
Avatar n tn I have trigeminal Neuralgia, I've been dealing with it for over the last ten years! The first time I got the symptoms and went to the doctor, they ran allot of tests to see if I had a blood clot forming, thankfully there was no clot! For about six years no one could give me the right diagnosis of what was going on inside my head.
233622 tn?1279338505 It feels like something shoots through my head. Simular to what Trigeminal Neuralgia feels like but without the sharp pain. The heat might be getting to me I guess. I am ready for cooler weather.
671285 tn?1292663761 I would suggest an eye examination from an ophthalmologist and gettinh refractive errors checked.If eye disease is ruled out,then migraine,sinusitis and trigeminal neuralgia should be probed.
Avatar m tn The pain can be due to Trigeminal neuralgia. It is caused by compression of the trigeminal nerve root. It is mainly diagnosed clinically and it can be supported by Neuroimaging and Electrophysiologic tests. Once diagnosis is confirmed, such pain can be treated by drugs like Oxcarbazepine, Baclofen, Lamotrigine or Pimozide against prescription from a doctor. I suggest you to consult neurologist. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn If you constantly feel pressure in your head, facial pressure confusion etc it could be a part of MS, trigeminal neuralgia, compression of the spinal nerve, or even due to dental problems. Deviated nasal septum is another possibility that should be looked into. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn I have nothing wrong with my brain, but have chronic sinusitis and atypical trigeminal neuralgia. I feel pressure from my frontal head deep into eyes and feel very sleepy. I was told long time ago that I have poor back head circulation. It comes from the neck muscle and the muscle is very often swollen. All I need is something that makes better circulation. My pains are connected with the weather, especially with the wind.
Avatar f tn Medication/Treatment History Primary care physician said possible trigeminal neuralgia. Prescribed Gabapentin, Oxcarbazephine, Sumatriptan. Medications enhanced symptoms and had discomforting side effects, no longer taking these meds. Saw ENT who prescribed Amitriptyline, med only helps with going to sleep, still taking this med. Had MRI w/o contrast that showed no problem. Saw ENT that found no problems from looking in my ear and nose.
Avatar f tn Its best to see a doctor as it could be caused by many things. As Rumpled said, migraines And other such conditions like Trigeminal or Occipital Neuralgia... both can be treated with a Medication as can migraines. Its most likely NOT to be a Brain tumor. I had occipital neuralgia...I had the twitching and spasming, my eye would go funny. I couldnt even brush my hair. It felt like millions of sharp needles sticking into my head at a certain spot.
Avatar n tn Hi, this could be due to nerve involvement (neuralgia) or muscular headache. Sharp shooting pains are seen in trigeminal neuralgia whereas pressure headaches are mainly associated with tension headaches. Do consult doctor for investigations. Please visit website for more information.
425200 tn?1368744670 I have had severe pain and numbness on the right side of my face for almost 4 years now. They have ruled out Trigeminal Neuralgia because of the numbness and ruled out Bell's Palsy because of the pain. I have had CT scans of my sinues and 5 different MRI's with contrast and w/o. All came up clear. They have ruled out MS. I even had a lumbar puncture to test what I'm not sure (but neurologist at the time said I needed to).

Avatar n tn She is 41 years old and has had multiple surgeries for Trigeminal Neuralgia/Gamma Knife, Partial laminictomy C-1/Duraplasty and decompression surgery for Chiari/Syringomelia, and two fusions for a fractured neck at C5-7. She was recently told that she has a blocked 4th ventrical of her brain due to scar tissue and arachnoiditis.
Avatar f tn After that, every time the air pressure would drop suddenly from weather changes(frequent here in Western WA), his face/head pain would start like a cluster headache with his upper molars aching on one side, then the facial nerve would get involved and he'd have trigeminal neuralgia, tinnitis, one eye would blur, and he often lost the hearing in one ear. And then the global head pain would come on.
