Pain in the facial region including orofacial pain and craniofacial pain. Associated conditions include local inflammatory and neoplastic disorders and neuralgic syndromes involving the trigeminal, facial, and glossopharyngeal nerves. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent facial pain as the primary manifestation of disease are referred to as FACIAL PAIN SYNDROMES.
Neuralgic syndromes which feature chronic or recurrent FACIAL PAIN as the primary manifestation of disease. Disorders of the trigeminal and facial nerves are frequently associated with these conditions.
A syndrome characterized by recurrent episodes of excruciating pain lasting several seconds or longer in the sensory distribution of the TRIGEMINAL NERVE. Pain may be initiated by stimulation of trigger points on the face, lips, or gums or by movement of facial muscles or chewing. Associated conditions include MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, vascular anomalies, ANEURYSMS, and neoplasms. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p187)
Severe or complete loss of facial muscle motor function. This condition may result from central or peripheral lesions. Damage to CNS motor pathways from the cerebral cortex to the facial nuclei in the pons leads to facial weakness that generally spares the forehead muscles. FACIAL NERVE DISEASES generally results in generalized hemifacial weakness. NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION DISEASES and MUSCULAR DISEASES may also cause facial paralysis or paresis.
A variety of conditions affecting the anatomic and functional characteristics of the temporomandibular joint. Factors contributing to the complexity of temporomandibular diseases are its relation to dentition and mastication and the symptomatic effects in other areas which account for referred pain to the joint and the difficulties in applying traditional diagnostic procedures to temporomandibular joint pathology where tissue is rarely obtained and x-rays are often inadequate or nonspecific. Common diseases are developmental abnormalities, trauma, subluxation, luxation, arthritis, and neoplasia. (From Thoma's Oral Pathology, 6th ed, pp577-600)
A tricyclic antidepressant with some tranquilizing action.
Traumatic injuries to the TRIGEMINAL NERVE. It may result in extreme pain, abnormal sensation in the areas the nerve innervates on face, jaw, gums and tongue and can cause difficulties with speech and chewing. It is sometimes associated with various dental treatments.
A symptom complex consisting of pain, muscle tenderness, clicking in the joint, and limitation or alteration of mandibular movement. The symptoms are subjective and manifested primarily in the masticatory muscles rather than the temporomandibular joint itself. Etiologic factors are uncertain but include occlusal dysharmony and psychophysiologic factors.
The 5th and largest cranial nerve. The trigeminal nerve is a mixed motor and sensory nerve. The larger sensory part forms the ophthalmic, mandibular, and maxillary nerves which carry afferents sensitive to external or internal stimuli from the skin, muscles, and joints of the face and mouth and from the teeth. Most of these fibers originate from cells of the TRIGEMINAL GANGLION and project to the TRIGEMINAL NUCLEUS of the brain stem. The smaller motor part arises from the brain stem trigeminal motor nucleus and innervates the muscles of mastication.
The 7th cranial nerve. The facial nerve has two parts, the larger motor root which may be called the facial nerve proper, and the smaller intermediate or sensory root. Together they provide efferent innervation to the muscles of facial expression and to the lacrimal and SALIVARY GLANDS, and convey afferent information for TASTE from the anterior two-thirds of the TONGUE and for TOUCH from the EXTERNAL EAR.
An unpleasant sensation induced by noxious stimuli which are detected by NERVE ENDINGS of NOCICEPTIVE NEURONS.
Observable changes of expression in the face in response to emotional stimuli.
Aching sensation that persists for more than a few months. It may or may not be associated with trauma or disease, and may persist after the initial injury has healed. Its localization, character, and timing are more vague than with acute pain.
Scales, questionnaires, tests, and other methods used to assess pain severity and duration in patients or experimental animals to aid in diagnosis, therapy, and physiological studies.

Diseases of the facial nerve or nuclei. Pontine disorders may affect the facial nuclei or nerve fascicle. The nerve may be involved intracranially, along its course through the petrous portion of the temporal bone, or along its extracranial course. Clinical manifestations include facial muscle weakness, loss of taste from the anterior tongue, hyperacusis, and decreased lacrimation.
A form of therapy that employs a coordinated and interdisciplinary approach for easing the suffering and improving the quality of life of those experiencing pain.
The facial skeleton, consisting of bones situated between the cranial base and the mandibular region. While some consider the facial bones to comprise the hyoid (HYOID BONE), palatine (HARD PALATE), and zygomatic (ZYGOMA) bones, MANDIBLE, and MAXILLA, others include also the lacrimal and nasal bones, inferior nasal concha, and vomer but exclude the hyoid bone.

Resolution of third nerve paresis after endovascular management of aneurysms of the posterior communicating artery. (1/350)

The effect of endovascular treatment on the recovery of neural function in patients with third nerve palsy caused by an aneurysm of the posterior communicating artery is poorly documented. We report three cases in which third nerve paresis resolved completely within 2 to 3 weeks of endovascular occlusion of a posterior communicating artery aneurysm.  (+info)

Efficacy of mandibular topical anesthesia varies with the site of administration. (2/350)

This study compared the threshold of pain sensitivity in the anterior mandibular mucobuccal fold with the posterior. This was followed by a comparison of the reduction of needle insertion pain in the anterior mucobuccal fold and the pterygo-temporal depression by either topical anesthesia or nitrous oxide inhalation. The pain threshold was determined by an analgometer, a pain-measuring device that depends on pressure readings; additionally, pain caused by a needle inserted by a normal technique was assessed using a visual analog scale (VAS). The threshold of pain was significantly lower in the incisor and canine regions than in the premolar and the molar regions (P < 0.001). Compared to a placebo, topical anesthesia significantly reduced the pain from needle insertion in the mucobuccal fold adjacent to the mandibular canine (P < 0.001), but did not significantly reduce pain in the pterygotemporal depression. The addition of 30% nitrous oxide did not significantly alter pain reduction compared to a control of 100% oxygen. These results suggest that topical anesthesia application may be effective in reducing the pain of needle insertion in the anterior mandibular mucobuccal fold, but may not be as effective for a standard inferior alveolar nerve block. The addition of 30% nitrous oxide did not lead to a significant improvement.  (+info)

Craniofacial pain and motor function: pathogenesis, clinical correlates, and implications. (3/350)

Many structural, behavioral, and pharmacological interventions imply that favorable treatment effects in musculoskeletal pain states are mediated through the correction of muscle function. The common theme of these interventions is captured in the popular idea that structural or psychological factors cause muscle hyperactivity, muscle overwork, muscle fatigue, and ultimately pain. Although symptoms and signs of motor dysfunction can sometimes be explained by changes in structure, there is strong evidence that they can also be caused by pain. This new understanding has resulted in a better appreciation of the pathogenesis of symptoms and signs of the musculoskeletal pain conditions, including the sequence of events that leads to the development of motor dysfunction. With the improved understanding of the relationship between pain and motor function, including the inappropriateness of many clinical assumptions, a new literature emerges that opens the door to exciting therapeutic opportunities. Novel treatments are expected to have a profound impact on the care of musculoskeletal pain and its effect on motor function in the not-too-distant future.  (+info)

Acute and chronic craniofacial pain: brainstem mechanisms of nociceptive transmission and neuroplasticity, and their clinical correlates. (4/350)

This paper reviews the recent advances in knowledge of brainstem mechanisms related to craniofacial pain. It also draws attention to their clinical implications, and concludes with a brief overview and suggestions for future research directions. It first describes the general organizational features of the trigeminal brainstem sensory nuclear complex (VBSNC), including its input and output properties and intrinsic characteristics that are commensurate with its strategic role as the major brainstem relay of many types of somatosensory information derived from the face and mouth. The VBSNC plays a crucial role in craniofacial nociceptive transmission, as evidenced by clinical, behavioral, morphological, and electrophysiological data that have been especially derived from studies of the relay of cutaneous nociceptive afferent inputs through the subnucleus caudalis of the VBSNC. The recent literature, however, indicates that some fundamental differences exist in the processing of cutaneous vs. other craniofacial nociceptive inputs to the VBSNC, and that rostral components of the VBSNC may also play important roles in some of these processes. Modulatory mechanisms are also highlighted, including the neurochemical substrate by which nociceptive transmission in the VBSNC can be modulated. In addition, the long-term consequences of peripheral injury and inflammation and, in particular, the neuroplastic changes that can be induced in the VBSNC are emphasized in view of the likely role that central sensitization, as well as peripheral sensitization, can play in acute and chronic pain. The recent findings also provide new insights into craniofacial pain behavior and are particularly relevant to many approaches currently in use for the management of pain and to the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures aimed at manipulating peripheral inputs and central processes underlying nociceptive transmission and its control within the VBSNC.  (+info)

Long-term follow-up of clinical symptoms in TMD patients who underwent occlusal reconstruction by orthodontic treatment. (5/350)

Fifty-eight patients (mean age 18.4 years) who had received splint therapy for internal derangement of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) were examined retrospectively to investigate the efficacy of occlusal reconstruction by orthodontic treatment. The subjects were divided into three groups: 18 patients (mean age 18.6 years) who underwent orthodontic treatment combined with the use of splints (ST group); 27 patients (mean age 18.2 years) who underwent orthodontic treatment without the use of splints (NST group); and 13 patients (mean age 17.9 years) who received only splint therapy for temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD; control group). TMJ sound, pain on movement and restriction of mandibular movement were examined at the initial examination (T1), at the end of the splint therapy for TMD or beginning of orthodontic treatment (T2), at the end of orthodontic treatment (T3), and at recall or 1 year after orthodontic treatment (T4). The following results were found. (1) The percentage of patients with no joint sound at T2 was 20-30 per cent. The percentage of such patients in both the ST and NST groups increased to over 50 per cent at T3, but slightly decreased to 39-50 per cent at T4. There were no significant inter-group differences at any time point. (2) The number of patients who had no pain on movement at T2 was 60-80 per cent. The percentage of such patients in both the ST and NST groups increased to over 90 per cent at T3, but then slightly decreased to 80 per cent at T4. There were no significant inter-group differences at any time point. (3) None of the patients showed restriction of movement of the TMJ at T2 or T4. One patient in the ST group was found to have restriction at T3. There were no significant inter-group differences at any time point. (4) The most frequent type of malocclusion in both ST and NST groups was anterior open bite. These results suggest that TMD symptoms that have been eliminated by splint therapy are not likely to recur due to subsequent orthodontic treatment, but it cannot be concluded that orthodontic treatment itself had a positive effect on TMD symptoms. The results also indicate that there is a relationship between anterior open bite and TMD.  (+info)

Neurovascular compression of the trigeminal and glossopharyngeal nerve: three case reports. (6/350)

Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a frequent cause of paroxysmal facial pain and headache in adults. Glossopharyngeal neuralgia (GPN) is less common, but can cause severe episodic pain in the ear and throat. Neurovascular compression of the appropriate cranial nerve as it leaves the brain stem is responsible for the symptoms in many patients, and neurosurgical decompression of the nerve is now a well accepted treatment in adults with both TN and GPN who fail to respond to drug therapy. Neither TN nor GPN are routinely considered in the differential diagnosis when assessing children with paroxysmal facial or head pain, as they are not reported to occur in childhood. Case reports of three children with documented neurovascular compression causing severe neuralgic pain and disability are presented. The fact that these conditions do occur in the paediatric population, albeit rarely, is highlighted, and appropriate investigation and management are discussed.  (+info)

Internal derangements of the temporomandibular joint: the role of arthroscopic surgery and arthrocentesis. (7/350)

Arthroscopic surgery appears to be a safe, minimally invasive and effective method for treating internal derangements of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), reducing pain and increasing mandibular range of motion for approximately 80% of patients. Although these results are encouraging, they are largely based on retrospective, uncontrolled and short-term studies. The landmark observation that lysis and lavage in only the upper compartment of the TMJ produce successful clinical results without repositioning the disc has prompted clinicians to question the importance of disc position as a significant factor in the etiology of TMJ pain dysfunction. Although there are prospective, controlled, randomized short-term studies indicating that arthrocentesis and arthroscopic surgery have comparable success rates in the management of acute TMJ closed lock, similar long-term studies are lacking. Until they have been done, the roles of arthroscopic surgery and arthrocentesis in the management of TMJ internal derangements remain unclear.  (+info)

Prevalence of signs and symptoms of temporomandibular disorders in young Nigerian adults. (8/350)

The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of signs and symptoms of TMD in young Nigerian adults and to establish a baseline for comparison with other studies. It consisted of a cross-sectional study at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria in 1997. The subjects consisted of 308 medical and dental students (207 males and 101 females) randomly selected from a Nigerian University. Their ages ranged from 17 to 32 years with a mean age of 23 +/- 3.0 years. They were assessed according to the criteria of Helkimo (1974). Whilst 26.3 per cent of the subjects reported mild symptoms (Ai I) of TMD, only 2.9 per cent reported severe symptoms (Ai II). Similarly, 46 per cent showed mild dysfunction signs (Di I), whilst 16.5 and 0.3 per cent exhibited moderate (Di II) and severe (Di III) signs of TMD, respectively. No significant relationships were found between sex, anamnestic index, and the clinical dysfunction index scores. However, there were low but significant correlations between ananmestic index scores (Ai) and the recorded signs (Di), as well as the clinical dysfunction scores (CDS). There is some evidence to show that signs and symptoms of TMD occur amongst Nigerians, although restricted lateral and protrusive mandibular movements contributed significantly to clinical dysfunction scores. This report contrasts with what is found in western societies regarding the low prevalence of TMJ pain. Refereed Scientific Paper  (+info)

The aim of this thesis was to study chronic orofacial pain patients from two perspectives - the clinical view and the experience of the patient - in order to improve the understanding of the patients and their condition. All patients had been referred to the Faculty of Odontology, Malmö University, Malmö, Sweden owing to chronic orofacial pain. The clinical perspective was investigated in a retrospective study of 109 consecutive chronic orofacial pain patients (85 females, 24 males) who had been examined by a pain group. Diagnosis, pain status, medication, and education were the parameters studied and pain-related sex differences were calculated. In addition, the patients were mailed a questionnaire after 4-9 years to follow up their pain status and to identify predictors of pain persistence. The patient perspective was investigated by interviewing 14 strategically selected patients (11 female, 3 male) about their lived experience of non-specific chronic orofacial pain. The interviews were of ...
Persistent idiopathic facial pain (PIFP) is also known as atypical odontalgia, phantom facial pain, and atypical facial pain.. PIFP has been defined as constant facial and/or oral pain with varying presentations, occurring for at least 2 h/d, and lasting for more than 3 months.. A diagnosis is made when the patient presents with the symptoms listed earlier, and with no clinical neurologic deficit.1 It is unrelated to burning pain in the tongue or oral mucosa.. ...
Persistent idiopathic facial pain (PIFP), originally known as atypical facial pain, refers to pain along the territory of the trigeminal nerve that does not fit the classic presentation of other cranial neuralgias. The pain is usually of long duration, lasting most of the day (if not continuous), is unilateral, and is without autonomic signs ...
Atypical facial pain (AFP) is a type of chronic facial pain which does not fulfill any other diagnosis.[1] There is no consensus as to a globally accepted definition, and there is even controversy as to whether the term should be continued to be used. Both the International Headache Society (IHS) and the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) have adopted the term persistent idiopathic facial pain (PIFP) to replace AFP. In the 2nd Edition of the International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD-2), PIFP is defined as persistent facial pain that does not have the characteristics of the cranial neuralgias ... and is not attributed to another disorder.[6] However, the term AFP continues to be used by the World Health Organizations 10th revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems and remains in general use by clinicians to refer to chronic facial pain that does not meet any diagnostic criteria and does not respond to most ...
Atypical facial pain is a disorder that causes persistent pain, usually on one side of the face. The pain is often described as sharp, aching, burning, crushing, or dull, and it is typically located along the trigeminal nerve, which carries sensation from the face to the brain. Atypical facial pain is different from other facial pain conditions because it lasts for a longer period of time and doesnt appear to be caused by an underlying medical condition. Possible causes of atypical facial pain may include dental or sinus infections, facial or nerve trauma, or inflammation of a ligament or tendon in the jaw.. A similar disorder, trigeminal neuralgia, sends sudden, intense, electric shock-like pain to the forehead, cheeks, jaw, gums, and around the eyes. It is caused by the irritation of the trigeminal nerve, and can be triggered by simple acts such as washing the face, brushing teeth, and eating or drinking. Unlike atypical facial pain, trigeminal neuralgia episodes last only a few seconds to a ...
Facial pain often resembles a headache, but the pain is more severe, piercing and occurs within the facial region. While there are many causes for facial pain, the root and location of the pain may be difficult to find. Due to the diagnosing challenges, facial pain can be hard to treat.. The pain may occur around the eyes, near the nose and along either side of the mouth. Some cases result in facial pain lower on the face, along the jaw line or around the mouth.. If left untreated, facial pain may become chronic. Pain levels range from dull and throbbing to sharp and piercing, often tingling due to nerve damage. In some cases the pain wont go away and little to no relief is provided without treatment.. What Causes Facial Pain?. There are a number of reasons for facial pain but the most common causes stem from migraine headaches with radiating pain into the face, dental problems such as TMJ that have not been remedied, and neuropathic facial pain like trigeminal neuralgia.. While it can be ...

Part one of this volume presents a review of the literature on the relationship between chronic pain and socioeconomic status. It examines the evidence supporting the association and considers the psychological meaning of the findings. Part two consists of a qualitative empirical paper which samples patients with chronic orofacial pain to explore their understanding of their pain and their beliefs and fears about the causes and maintenance of their pain, both before and after an initial consultation at a specialist pain clinic. The final section is a critical appraisal of conducting this thesis. It contains a personal reflection of conducting both the literature review and empirical paper and describes some of the obstacles encountered during the process ...
PMID: 9656903 The McGill Pain Questionnaire is an instrument that is widely used to assess the multidimensional experience of pain. Although it was introduced more than 20 years ago, limited information is available about its use in patients suffering from persistent facial pain. The aim of this study was to investigate the response patterns of persistent facial pain patients to the McGill Pain Questionnaire, to correlate these patterns with patients beliefs about the seriousness of the condition, and to compare the findings with data reported from other painful conditions. The study sample consisted of 200 consecutive female patients referred to a tertiary care facial pain clinic. The Pain Rating Index scores of the McGill Pain Questionnaire subscales and the total number of words chosen by these patients closely matched the summary scores reported by Wilkie et al, who pooled data from seven pain conditions (cancer, chronic back, mixed chronic, acute/postoperative, labor/gynecological, dental, ...
Alexandria, Va., USA - The International and American Associations for Dental Research (IADR/AADR) have published a special issue of the Journal of Dental Research (JDR) on orofacial pain. Ronald Dubner, University of Maryland, Baltimore, USA, served as the guest editor of this special issue.. Today, pain is a health problem that requires a broader perspective than in the past. Millions of people suffer from overlapping chronic pain conditions that share co-morbid behavioral, physiological and psychological characteristics as well as genetic determinants. Many of these conditions affect the orofacial region uniquely or have accompanied widespread systemic manifestations. This includes temporomandibular disorders (TMD), headache, arthritis, and fibromyalgia, to name just a few.. The recognition of the above issues and their importance to students, dental scientists and practitioners has led to this special issue, which highlights the latest developments in the field of chronic orofacial pain. ...

Referred pain is frequently associated with misdiagnosis and unnecessary therapy directed to the pain location instead of its origin. When craniofacial pain is the sole symptom of myocardial ischemia, failure to recognize its cardiac source can endanger the patient. In particular, patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) who do not experience chest pain run a very high risk of misdiagnosis and death. Pain that is limited to the craniofacial region during myocardial ischemia has so far been described only in case reports and its overall prevalence is unknown. Experimental research in animals suggests a vagal involvement in the pathological mechanisms of cardiac pain referred to the face.. The aim of this study was to gain knowledge about the prevalence, clinical characteristics and possible mechanisms of craniofacial pain of cardiac origin, in order to improve the clinicians ability to make a correct diagnosis. It was hypothesized that the quality of craniofacial pain from cardiac versus ...
In 2017, a 27-year-old male patient presented to us with complaints of severe paroxysmal and continuous right- sided facial pain. He described his pain as a constant severe burning sensation with intermittent intensive lancinating (sharp) pain in the distribution of all three branches of the trigeminal nerve. This paroxysmal pain could be provoked by a light touch of the skin surface, chewing, and toothbrushing. This burning facial pain with short lasting episode of eyelid ptosis on the right side started in 2014 and later he also started experiencing severe paroxysmal pain that did not respond to oral carbamazepine but improved with pregabalin (75 mg). Over the years, the pain worsened and the medication dose had to be increased. In 2016, a Gamma Knife radiosurgery (90 Gy) was performed in another institution, targeting the right trigeminal nerve root, but no pain improvement was observed during subsequent 15 months. By that time, the patient was taking pregabalin (600 mg) with partial control ...

By admin Chronic facial pain is a problem faced by millions of Americans.. Common symptoms can include pain in or around the ear, tenderness of the jaw, clicking or popping noises when opening the mouth or even head and neck aches.. If you are suffering from this type of pain, your dentist can help identify its source with a thorough exam and appropriate x-rays.. Sometimes, the problem is a sinus or toothache or it could be an early stage of periodontal disease.. But for some pain, the cause is not so easily diagnosed.. There are two joints and several jaw muscles which make it possible to open and close the mouth. They work together when you chew, speak, and swallow.. These structures include muscles and ligaments, as well as the jaw bone, the mandible (lower jaw) with two joints, the TMJs.. Any problem that prevents this complex system of muscles, ligaments, discs and bones from working together properly may result in a painful TMJ disorder.. There are several ways the TMJ disorders may be ...

Temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) comprise a number of clinical conditions characterized by changes in masticatory muscles, temporomandibular joints (TMJ) and associated structures. According to researches in the U.S. and Europe, chronic orofacial pain encompasses 40 % of all chronic pain conditions, of which 10-15 % is related to the TMD. Pain and sensitivity of masticatory muscles and TMJ are most prominent symptoms of TMD. Although the etiopathogenesis of TMD has not been fully elucidated, in patients with TMD were observed changes in the processing of painful stimuli, indicating the importance of ion channels in the development of craniofacial painful conditions. Ion channels seam to regulate neuronal excitability. Since sensory inputs from craniofacial region are transmitted to higher neural centers responsible for pain sensations through trigeminal ganglion (TRG) neurons, changes in expression of various ion channels in TRG neurons might be causative in development of TMD ...
This intermediate-level course is intended to address this training deficit by providing dental healthcare professionals with an overview of the nature and scope of chronic pain, as well as basic skills for effective assessment and adjunctive treatments of chronic orofacial pain conditions and related problems. To accomplish these goals, the course first examines the basic physiological principles that underlie pain, describes the distinction between acute and chronic pain, and explains the factors that contribute to acute pain becoming chronic. The prevalence and impact of chronic pain on physical functioning, health, and quality of life are examined. An introduction to the practical assessment of chronic pain provides readers with a description of selected assessment tools and interview procedures. Dental practitioners may be familiar with the diagnosis and treatment of pain in a specific context, for example, temporomandibular disorders. However, the emphasis of this course lies in assessing ...

Each year doctors treat about 150,000 new cases of severe facial pain. If youre one of those people, you dont have to suffer-there are ways to gain relief from these painful episodes.. Those recurring episodes are known as trigeminal neuralgia (TN). As the name implies, the source of the pain are the trigeminal nerves, which originate in the brain stem and extend on either side of the face. Each is divided into three branches (hence the tri in trigeminal) that serve the upper, middle and lower parts of the face and jaw.. TN can involve one or more of these branches, resulting in mild to severe pain that can last for several seconds. Jaw movements like chewing or speaking can trigger an episode, as well as a light touch to the face.. There are various proposed causes for TN, including links with inflammatory disorders like multiple sclerosis, which damages the insulating sheathing around nerve cells. The most common cause, though, appears to be a blood vessel pressing against the nerve. The ...

Mr Hinds is 30 years old and has had facial pain for four years. The pain began in his upper left jaw in his teeth and he had extensive dental treatment leading to root canal therapy and finally extraction of his upper molar. He had limited pain relief after each of the procedures. There have been periods of no pain after dental treatment, but since this finished a year ago the pain has been continuous. The pain scores on VAS range from 3-8 with an average of 4 out of 10. It does fluctuate in intensity and he may not be aware of it during the day, but it is worse in the evenings. The pain is described on the MPQ as boring, sharp, gnawing, tugging, aching, tender, tiring, wretched, miserable, radiating, and nagging. The pain is now located both externally and intraorally on the left maxilla and radiates as far as the forehead and down to the neck, remaining mainly left sided. Nothing seems to help and he has stopped using all analgesics as they do not help. Mr Hinds reports headaches, neck and ...

We are all just a bag of nerves and MS interfers with nerve signalling. Dalfamprydine can help nerves to signal and can improve walking speed. However, to get a positive signal may mean that some negative signal may be absent. Positive signalling can be excitatory, inhibitory or disinhibitory (inhibitor of an inhibitory circuit leads to more excitation). So in this study it was found that facial pain may be worse on drug. This shows the complexities of the nervous system and that drug treatment may not always result in a black and white answer. This is a small study but pain has been a noted side effect. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Trigeminal neuralgia and other craniofacial pain syndromes. T2 - An overview. AU - Elias, W. Jeffrey. AU - Burchiel, Kim J.. PY - 2004/3/1. Y1 - 2004/3/1. N2 - Classic, idiopathic trigeminal neuralgia is an easily recognizable condition of excruciating, lancinating pain in one or more of the trigeminal distributions. Atypical features may exist (i.e., constant burning pains of a background nature) and we propose this condition represents the natural progression of trigeminal neuralgia type 1 to type 2. The etiology of trigeminal neuralgia is accepted as occurring from microvascular compression at the root entry zone, but other trigeminal facial pain syndromes exist and occur from iatrogenic (trigeminal deafferentation pain) or traumatic (trigeminal neuropathic pain) injuries. It is important to recognize when facial pain occurs in cranial nerve distributions other than the trigeminal nerve, as the treatments are different for geniculate, glossopharyngeal, and occipital neuralgia. ...

e-mail: [email protected] *(all pictures and tables are shown in .pdf document). Abstract. Background: Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) are recognized as the most common non-tooth-related chronic orofacial pain conditions that confront dentists and other healthcare providers. Functional disturbances of the masticatory system can be as complicated as the system itself. Although numerous treatments have been advocated, the complex nature of TMD requires a multidisciplinary team. Effective treatment selection begins with a thorough understanding of the disorder & its etiology.. Objective: The purpose of this review is to examine the evidence concerning the management of temporomandibular dysfunction using various splints.. Data collection: The articles reported in this literature review were searched on pubmed/medline database, considering only the scientific journals written in English.. Outcomes: Occlusal splints must be chosen by dentists as therapeutic appliances based upon appropriate ...
The function of empathic concern to process pain is a product of evolutionary adaptation. Focusing on five- to six-year old children, the current study employed eye-tracking in an odd-one-out task (searching for the emotional facial expression among neutral expressions, N = 47) and a pain evaluation task (evaluating the pain intensity of a facial expression, N = 42) to investigate the relationship between childrens empathy and their behavioral and perceptual response to facial pain expression. We found children detected painful expression faster than others (angry, sad, happy), children high in empathy performed better on searching facial expression of pain, and gave higher evaluation of pain intensity; and rating for pain in painful expressions was best predicted by a self-reported empathy score. As for eye-tracking in pain detection, children fixated on pain more quickly, less frequently and for shorter times. Of facial clues, children fixated on eyes and mouth more quickly, more frequently and for
Objective: To compare the risk factors and clinical manifestations of patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) diagnosed according to the Research Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (RDC/TMD) (axis I) versus an age and gender matched control group. Study D esign: A total of 162 patients explored according to the RDC/TMD (mean age 40.6±18.8 years, range 7-90; 11.1% males and 88.9% females) were compared with 119 controls, measuring differences in TMD risk factors (sleep disturbances, stress, psychoactive medication, parafunctions, loss of posterior support, ligament hyperlaxity) and clinical variables (joint sounds, painful muscle and joint palpation, maximum aperture). Results: Myofascial pain (MFP) (single or multiple diagnoses) was the most frequent diagnosis (42%). The most common diagnostic combination was MFP plus arthralgia (16.0%). Statistically significant differences were observed in clenching (OR 2.3; 95%CI: 1.4-3.8) and in maximum active aperture (MAA) on ...

Therefore, if you have headaches in any of these locations in addition to other symptoms of sinusitis, it is possible that sinusitis is causing them.. Occasionally, a contact point between a spur of the nasal septum and any other nasal tissue can cause facial pain or headache. Applying a decongestant may shrink the tissue enough to eliminate contact and temporarily improve symptoms. In the office, a topical or injected local anesthetic may also result in temporary improvement. Surgically removing the spur is effective to remove the anatomic contact point.. Though sinusitis may be purely responsible for headache, it is just as important to establish when a headache is not due to sinusitis. Headaches can have several other different causes, including, typical or variant migraines, cluster, tension, or vascular headache, trigeminal neuralgia, or other atypical facial pain. Facial pain specialists or neurologists may be recommended to help treat your symptoms if one of these conditions is suspected. ...

Pain due to temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) often has the same clinical symptoms and signs as other types of orofacial pain (OP). The possible presence of serious neurological and/or systemic organic pathologies makes differential diagnosis difficult, especially in early disease stages. In the present study, we performed a qualitative and quantitative electrophysiological evaluation of the neuromuscular responses of the trigeminal nervous system. Using the jaw jerk reflex (JJ) and the motor evoked potentials of the trigeminal roots (bR-MEPs) tests, we investigated the functional and organic responses of healthy subjects (control group) and patients with TMD symptoms (TMD group). Thirty-three patients with temporomandibular disorder (TMD) symptoms and 36 control subjects underwent two electromyographic (EMG) tests: the jaw jerk reflex test and the motor evoked potentials of the trigeminal roots test using bilateral electrical transcranial stimulation. The mean, standard deviation, median, minimum, and

After receiving Botulinum Toxin injections, there will be some muscle tenderness. But that will disappear almost immediately after your treatment. There may also be mild temporary bruising, numbness or redness around the injection sites. Since Botulinum Toxin treatment is nonsurgical and noninvasive, you will be able to return to normal activities immediately. However, it is important that you do not rub or massage the area that has been injected with Botulinum Toxin. Avoiding this will help to prevent the spreading of the toxin to other muscle groups. You should also remain upright for several hours after the procedure, while also limiting physical activities immediately following. If you suffer from TMD or headaches, now is the time to stand up as seek further treatment for relief. Contact Dr. Patel at Craniofacial Pain & Dental Sleep Center of Georgia for more information on Botulinum Toxin (Botox) injections for TMD and headache treatment. ...
Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) encompasses all musculoskeletal disorders of the masticatory system and includes myalgia, arthralgia, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disc displacements, and TMJ degenerative joint diseases. The prevalence of TMD ranges from 6% to 12% in the general population, with muscle dysfunction the most prevalent TMD diagnostic group. TMD is associated with substantial disability and suffering and negatively impacts quality of life. Jaw pain is the most common symptom that compels treatment seeking. In addition to facial pain, TMD patients frequently report comorbid pain conditions such as headache, low back pain, and fibromyalgia. New approaches to TMD therapy are urgently needed to improve clinical outcomes and reduce economic impact of this disorder.. There is currently no FDA-approved product labeled specifically to manage/treat TMD; however, classes of drugs are used to relieve TMD-associated pain, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), ...

This paper is divided into two parts; the first part provides a background on botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT) for medical uses as well as a description of how to use it. The second part provides a critical review of the evidence regarding the use of BoNT for pain in the orofacial region. This review was based on published literature gathered from Medline databases. Specifically, the authors looked for papers that were randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials (RBCTs) that were published in peer-reviewed journals. Where these were not widely available, they describe the case report and open-label clinical trials-based evidence. Regarding the medical use of BoNT, as soon as it became evident that victims of food poisoning experienced motor paralysis as a part of their disease and that the bacterium Clostridium botulinum was responsible, the idea that a toxin that is produced by this bacteria might have medical uses was not far behind. It was in the 1920s that BoNT was purified first . It was ...
We are therefore evolutionarily programmed to interpret pain as a warning sign of tissue being damaged and often protective reflexes will ensue. The fact is that we now understand it is possible to have pain without visible damage or pathology and science is beginning to unpick the nerve-based mechanisms behind this. The facial region contains structures vital for living: eyes for sight, mouth for breathing, communicating and eating, and ears for hearing. In addition the essential organ, the brain, is also obviously in close proximity. It should be of no surprise, therefore, that any threat of damage to this region is likely to initiate primitive survival instincts and this may amplify the psychological and physiological consequences of pain in this region. This coupled to the level of sensory supply to the face probably helps explain the highly distressing nature of pain in this region.. This partly explains as to why pain in the orofacial region causes such fear and emotion in patients. The ...
The purpose of this study was to assess the structural characteristics of styloid process (SP) by cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) examination in a patient population suffering from orofacial pain. The second aim was to assess the prevalence of elongated SP and its relation to gender, site and subjective symptoms in the study population. Clinical and radiographic records of 208 patients were evaluated retrospectively. Radiological examinations including measurements of the structure, length, and medial angulations of SP were performed on CBCT images. Out of 208 patients, 96 (46%) had not-elongated SP, 28 (13%) had left side, 16 (8%) had right side, and 68 (33%) had bilateral elongation of SP. The patients with elongated SP had significantly decreased angle values. There were no statistically significant differences in length values of SP between males and females in both groups. Significantly increased prevalence of symptoms except headache was observed in patients with elongated SP. This study
The Guidelines Committee for the American Academy of Orofacial Pain conducted an evidence-based literature review to systematically search and review the literature for all randomized clinical trials for TMJD treatment using methods derived from the Cochrane Collaboration (http://www.cochrane.org/); the Oxford Centre for Evidence-based Medicine, (http://www.cebm.net/); and the Centre for Reviews and Dissemination, University of York, United Kingdom (www.york.ac.uk/ inst/crd/index.htm). Trials in which placebo, no treatment, or other treatments were used in the control group were included as were trials in which postrandomization exclusions occurred since there was no evidence that these occurred preferentially in one or other arm of the trials. This presentation reviews the results of this review for intraoral splints and occlusal therapies for temporomandibular disorders. This paper only provides a summary of the methods and results. The full results can be found in the subsequent journal ...

About TMD And TMJ- YMD is short for Temporomandibular Disorders and TMJ is short for Temporomandibular joints, which join the skull and your lower jawbone. TMD is one of the reasons why many people suffer from headaches, facial pain and neck pain. The disorder happens when there are issues with the muscles and the jaws. There are various types of TMJ problems, which is why early detection is important.. Some people have described TMJ as feeling like their jaw is clicking, popping or getting stuck for a brief moment. However, the exact reason why this happens is not known. Usually, a dentist will want to know what symptoms you are experiencing before they diagnose you with TMJ disorder.. 2. Reasons TMJ Disorders Develop- These disorders can develop as a result of numerous ...

When something touches our skin, its generally very easy for our brains to pinpoint the exact location of stimulation due to the dense forest of nerves that cover the outside of our bodies. On the contrary, the insides of our bodies have a much less developed sensory system which often makes it hard to describe and locate a potential source of discomfort. Nowhere is this more of a problem than the head, neck, and face. For example, ear pain can be referred from the back of the tongue, the tonsils, the back of the nose, and even deep muscles of the neck.. In this post, I want to touch on a very specific type of referred pain called Sluders neuralgia which are contact headaches caused by a severely deviated nasal septum.

The patented SphenoCath® is designed to quickly and comfortably deliver medication to the area of ...
Pain that is experienced in the absence of a noxious stimulus or pathological change is often labelled functional. Clinical examples include atypical facial pain or some low back pains where the pain persists long after injuries have healed. In many cases it is difficult to exclude all physical explanations, but in the absence of other explanations these pains are often labelled imagined or all in the mind. These types of pain, truly felt but in the absence of an identifiable physical cause, have been the topic of a number of interesting investigations involving hypnosis.. Whalley & Oakley (2003) have recently shown that some highly hypnotisable individuals are able to experience a painfully hot sensation in the absence of a noxious physical stimulus.. Derbyshire, Whalley, Stenger & Oakley (2004) conducted an fMRI investigation in which hypnotically hallucinated (HI) pain was compared with a 48.5ºc painful heat induced by a thermal probe (PI).

The sound can break the silence of the night, frighten small children and startle sleeping adults. The noise may be disturbing to the spouse, roommate or witness, but it is even more harmful to the person performing the grinding. Often the individual is not aware of their grinding.. For many years it was believed that grinding was a tension symptom-that it stemmed from emotional or psychological stress. Today, dental authorities agree that emotional stress maybe a contributory factor but the real cause is an improper fit between the upper and lower teeth and the jaw joints.. Most people grind their teeth in an unconscious effort to correct tooth shape or position irregularities or a improper fit of opposing teeth when they come together, or an imbalance of the jaw joints as the jaw moves. This is also the major cause of TMJ or jaw joint pain and discomfort.. You may recognize signs of grinding or clenching as the top surfaces of teeth gradually wear down to flat surfaces and front teeth appear ...
This portable equipment helps reduce facial pain for many patients. BioTENS is a compact, ultra-low frequency, electrical neural stimulator that delivers a precisely regulated, rhythmic stimulus to both masticatory and facial muscles.

Vyepti was the 4th and most recent of the CGRP mAbs to become available. It is made by Lundbeck and was FDA approved for migraine prevention 2/21/20. The antibody is produced in Pichia pastoris yeast cells by recombinant DNA technology. It targets the CGRP ligand, rather than the CGRP receptor. It binds very strongly to the CGRP ligand, interfering with its ability to bind to the CGRP receptor and activate the migraine. It comes in 100 mg and 300 mg doses and is dosed once quarterly (every 3 months) by a quick 30-minute infusion. The 100 mg dose is the recommended starting dose which can be titrated as needed to the higher dose later.. This is the only intravenous (IV) option available. Since it is administered IV, it is 100% bioavailable compared to the bioavailability of the other subcutaneous injections of 50-82%. It also reaches Cmax (maximum concentration) in about 30 minutes compared to 5-7 days of the other subcutaneous injections. Therefore, not surprisingly Vyepti showed treatment ...
Ból w obrębie twarzy nie jest rzadkim zjawiskiem, choć nie ma jednoznacznych danych epidemiologicznych. Większość dolegliwości, zwłaszcza ból ostry, związana jest z dolegliwościami ze strony zębów i może być skutecznie leczone przez stomatologów. Problem pojawia się, jeśli ból ma charakter przewlekły, stanowi on wówczas problem zarówno diagnostyczny jak i terapeutyczny dla wielu specjalistów. Ból w obrębie twarzy może powstawać w różnych strukturach: opony mózgowe, rogówka, miazga zęba, śluzówka jamy ustnej, czy nosa, staw skroniowo-żuchwowy, tym samym posiada kilka odmiennych cech fizjologicznych w porównaniu z rdzeniowym systemem nocyceptywnym.

Opisano w niej wiele zespołów bólowych dotyczących głowy i twarzy, ale jak wynika z doświadczeń klinicznych, wciąż pojawiają się ...
