  • vascular
  • Jaw problems exacerbate and can even cause headache and/or face pain through the trigeminal vascular complex, which consists of the trigeminal nerve system and related blood vessels. (pressurepositive.com)
  • However, an even larger number of patients without trigeminal neuralgia have asymptomatic vascular contacts on imaging. (springer.com)
  • This has led to speculations about what extra ingredients are necessary for a vascular contact to cause trigeminal neuralgia, from a genetic predisposition to anatomical features such as cisternal crowding and arachnoidal thickening. (springer.com)
  • douloureux
  • This article in Cranio Journal is one of my favorites, showing success with management of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain, cluster headaches, tic douloureux, dysmenorrhea, trigeminal neuralgia, bronchospasm and chronic hiccup. (sleepandhealth.com)
  • sensory nerve
  • The fifth nerve is primarily a sensory nerve, but it also has certain motor functions (biting, chewing, and swallowing). (thefullwiki.org)
  • The ophthalmic (sensory) nerve leaves the skull through the superior orbital fissure and innervates the upper eyelids, the conjunctiva, the skin of the forehead, and the anterior part of the scalp. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • The superior maxillary (sensory) nerve leaves the skull through the foramen rotundum, enters the pterygopalatine fossa, and innervates the skin of the lower lid, the cheek and nose, the mucosa of the nasal cavity, and the upper jaw. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • 1 These pathologic changes cause ectopic discharge or impulse generation from sites along axons where damage has occurred, rather than just at sensory nerve endings. (asahq.org)
  • The sensory nerve endings are located in the scalp, the forehead, cheeks, nose, upper part of the mouth, and the gums and teeth. (verywellhealth.com)
