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)
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.
Pain in nerves, frequently involving facial SKIN, resulting from the activation the latent varicella-zoster virus (HERPESVIRUS 3, HUMAN). The two forms of the condition preceding the pain are HERPES ZOSTER OTICUS; and HERPES ZOSTER OPHTHALMICUS. Following the healing of the rashes and blisters, the pain sometimes persists.
Mechanical compression of nerves or nerve roots from internal or external causes. These may result in a conduction block to nerve impulses (due to MYELIN SHEATH dysfunction) or axonal loss. The nerve and nerve sheath injuries may be caused by ISCHEMIA; INFLAMMATION; or a direct mechanical effect.
Intense or aching pain that occurs along the course or distribution of a peripheral or cranial nerve.
Surgical interruption of a spinal or cranial nerve root. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
Surgery performed to relieve pressure from MICROVESSELS that are located around nerves and are causing NERVE COMPRESSION SYNDROMES.
Junction between the cerebellum and the pons.
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.
Procedures using an electrically heated wire or scalpel to treat hemorrhage (e.g., bleeding ulcers) and to ablate tumors, mucosal lesions, and refractory arrhythmias. It is different from ELECTROSURGERY which is used more for cutting tissue than destroying and in which the patient is part of the electric circuit.
A surgical operation for the relief of pressure in a body compartment or on a body part. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
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.
The performance of surgical procedures with the aid of a microscope.
An anticonvulsant used to control grand mal and psychomotor or focal seizures. Its mode of action is not fully understood, but some of its actions resemble those of PHENYTOIN; although there is little chemical resemblance between the two compounds, their three-dimensional structure is similar.
Recurrent clonic contraction of facial muscles, restricted to one side. It may occur as a manifestation of compressive lesions involving the seventh cranial nerve (FACIAL NERVE DISEASES), during recovery from BELL PALSY, or in association with other disorders. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1378)
The application, via IMPLANTED ELECTRODES, of short bursts of electrical energy in the radiofrequency range, interspersed with pauses in delivery of the current long enough to dissipate the generated heat and avoid heat-induced tissue necrosis.
Diseases of the ninth cranial (glossopharyngeal) nerve or its nuclei in the medulla. The nerve may be injured by diseases affecting the lower brain stem, floor of the posterior fossa, jugular foramen, or the nerve's extracranial course. Clinical manifestations include loss of sensation from the pharynx, decreased salivation, and syncope. Glossopharyngeal neuralgia refers to a condition that features recurrent unilateral sharp pain in the tongue, angle of the jaw, external auditory meatus and throat that may be associated with SYNCOPE. Episodes may be triggered by cough, sneeze, swallowing, or pressure on the tragus of the ear. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1390)
A vascular anomaly characterized by a radial or wedge-shaped arrangement of dilated VEINS draining into a larger vein in the brain, spinal cord, or the meninges. Veins in a venous angioma are surrounded by normal nervous tissue, unlike a CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM CAVERNOUS HEMANGIOMA that lacks intervening nervous tissue. Drainage of venous angioma is fully integrated with the body's venous system, therefore, in most cases there is no clinical signs and rare bleeding.
Absent or reduced sensitivity to cutaneous stimulation.
Diseases of the trigeminal nerve or its nuclei, which are located in the pons and medulla. The nerve is composed of three divisions: ophthalmic, maxillary, and mandibular, which provide sensory innervation to structures of the face, sinuses, and portions of the cranial vault. The mandibular nerve also innervates muscles of mastication. Clinical features include loss of facial and intra-oral sensation and weakness of jaw closure. Common conditions affecting the nerve include brain stem ischemia, INFRATENTORIAL NEOPLASMS, and TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA.
Pain associated with a damaged PUDENDAL NERVE. Clinical features may include positional pain with sitting in the perineal and genital areas, sexual dysfunction and FECAL INCONTINENCE and URINARY INCONTINENCE.
A radiological stereotactic technique developed for cutting or destroying tissue by high doses of radiation in place of surgical incisions. It was originally developed for neurosurgery on structures in the brain and its use gradually spread to radiation surgery on extracranial structures as well. The usual rigid needles or probes of stereotactic surgery are replaced with beams of ionizing radiation directed toward a target so as to achieve local tissue destruction.
The semilunar-shaped ganglion containing the cells of origin of most of the sensory fibers of the trigeminal nerve. It is situated within the dural cleft on the cerebral surface of the petrous portion of the temporal bone and gives off the ophthalmic, maxillary, and part of the mandibular nerves.
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.
Twelve pairs of nerves that carry general afferent, visceral afferent, special afferent, somatic efferent, and autonomic efferent fibers.
An involuntary contraction of a muscle or group of muscles. Spasms may involve SKELETAL MUSCLE or SMOOTH MUSCLE.
A primary headache disorder that is characterized by frequent short-lasting, unilateral, neuralgiform pain attacks in the ocular area, with CONJUNCTIVA fluid-filling and tearing. SUNCT syndrome is usually resistant to treatment.
Process in which a patient is induced into a trance-like state in order to relieve anxiety during a dental procedure.
An attenuated vaccine used to prevent and/or treat HERPES ZOSTER, a disease caused by HUMAN HERPESVIRUS 3.
Subjective cutaneous sensations (e.g., cold, warmth, tingling, pressure, etc.) that are experienced spontaneously in the absence of stimulation.
Nuclei of the trigeminal nerve situated in the brain stem. They include the nucleus of the spinal trigeminal tract (TRIGEMINAL NUCLEUS, SPINAL), the principal sensory nucleus, the mesencephalic nucleus, and the motor nucleus.
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.
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.

Neurovascular decompression for trigeminal neuralgia in elderly patients. (1/226)

The operative findings and outcomes of neurovascular decompression for trigeminal neuralgia were compared between patients aged 75 years and older (elderly group, 17 patients) and patients aged under 75 years (nonelderly group, 115 patients). There were no statistically significant differences in the operative findings or outcomes between the two groups, except in the percentage of patients who had been treated with carbamazepine. Neurovascular decompression for trigeminal neuralgia can be performed in elderly patients with the same operative results as in nonelderly patients. If other treatments (especially carbamazepine treatment) prove ineffective, neurovascular decompression should be considered in elderly patients before they become too old to undergo surgery. However, neurovascular decompression in elderly patients requires great care, as the venous system, including the superior petrosal vein, should be preserved and retraction of the cerebellum should be avoided whenever possible to maintain correct blood circulation in the cerebellum and brainstem.  (+info)

Removal of petrous apex meningioma and microvascular decompression for trigeminal neuralgia through the anterior petrosal approach. Case report. (2/226)

A 64-year-old female presented with right trigeminal neuralgia. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging demonstrated a tumor attached to the right petrous apex. MR imaging also revealed that the trigeminal nerve was compressed and distorted by the tumor. Tumor removal and microvascular decompression (MVD) were performed via the anterior petrosal approach. The trigeminal nerve was distorted by the tumor and the superior cerebellar artery compressed the medial part of the root entry zone of the trigeminal nerve. The surgery resulted in complete relief of the trigeminal neuralgia. Posterior fossa tumors causing ipsilateral trigeminal neuralgia are not rare, and are often removed via the suboccipital retromastoid approach, as MVD for trigeminal neuralgia is usually performed through the retromastoid approach. The advantages of the anterior petrosal approach are shorter access to the lesion and direct exposure without interference from the cranial nerves, and that bleeding from the tumors is easily controlled as the feeding arteries can be managed in the early stage of the surgery. We conclude that the anterior petrosal approach is safe and advantageous for the removal of petrous apex tumor associated with trigeminal neuralgia.  (+info)

Trigeminal evoked potentials in patients with symptomatic trigeminal neuralgia due to intracranial mass lesions. (3/226)

Trigeminal evoked potentials (TEP) were recorded by electrical stimulation of the lips in 7 patients with symptomatic trigeminal neuralgia due to CT proved mass lesions involving the trigeminal nerve. All the patients showed TEP abnormalities on the affected side. Chronic compression and irritation of the trigeminal nerve may be responsible for these changes. The results obtained were compared with other similar studies and TEP abnormalities observed in idiopathic trigeminal neuralgia. As all the patients had unequivocal compression of the trigeminal nerve and all of them had TEP changes, it can be concluded that TEP abnormality is an accurate predictor of trigeminal nerve compression. TEPs may be a valuable aid in demonstrating a compressive element in patients with trigeminal neuralgia.  (+info)

Measurement of changes in opioid receptor binding in vivo during trigeminal neuralgic pain using [11C] diprenorphine and positron emission tomography. (4/226)

The binding of [11C]diprenorphine to mu, kappa, and delta subsites in cortical and subcortical structures was measured by positron emission tomography in vivo in six patients before and after surgical relief of trigeminal neuralgia pain. The volume of distribution of [11C]diprenorphine binding was significantly increased after thermocoagulation of the relevant trigeminal division in the following areas: prefrontal, insular, perigenual, mid-cingulate and inferior parietal cortices, basal ganglia, and thalamus bilaterally. In addition to the pain relief associated with the surgical procedure, there also was an improvement in anxiety and depression scores. In the context of other studies, these changes in binding most likely resulted from the change in the pain state. The results suggest an increased occupancy by endogenous opioid peptides during trigeminal pain but cannot exclude coexistent down-regulation of binding sites.  (+info)

Microvascular decompression for trigeminal neuralgia: comments on a series of 250 cases, including 10 patients with multiple sclerosis. (5/226)

OBJECTIVE: To examine surgical findings and results of microvascular decompression (MVD) for trigeminal neuralgia (TN), including patients with multiple sclerosis, to bring new insight about the role of microvascular compression in the pathogenesis of the disorder and the role of MVD in its treatment. METHODS: Between 1990 and 1998, 250 patients affected by trigeminal neuralgia underwent MVD in the Department of Neurosurgery of the "Istituto Nazionale Neurologico C Besta" in Milan. Limiting the review to the period 1991-6, to exclude the "learning period" (the first 50 cases) and patients with less than 1 year follow up, surgical findings and results were critically analysed in 148 consecutive cases, including 10 patients with multiple sclerosis. RESULTS: Vascular compression of the trigeminal nerve was found in all cases. The recurrence rate was 15.3% (follow up 1-7 years, mean 38 months). In five of 10 patients with multiple sclerosis an excellent result was achieved (follow up 12-39 months, mean 24 months). Patients with TN for more than 84 months did significantly worse than those with a shorter history (p<0.05). There was no mortality and most complications occurred in the learning period. Surgical complications were not related to age of the patients. CONCLUSIONS: Aetiopathogenesis of trigeminal neuralgia remains a mystery. These findings suggest a common neuromodulatory role of microvascular compression in both patients with or without multiple sclerosis rather than a direct causal role. MVD was found to be a safe and effective procedure to relieve typical TN in patients of all ages. It should be proposed as first choice surgery to all patients affected by TN, even in selected cases with multiple sclerosis, to give them the opportunity of pain relief without sensory deficits.  (+info)

Acute and chronic craniofacial pain: brainstem mechanisms of nociceptive transmission and neuroplasticity, and their clinical correlates. (6/226)

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)

Neurovascular compression of the trigeminal and glossopharyngeal nerve: three case reports. (7/226)

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)

Posterior fossa craniotomy. Technical report. (8/226)

The use of craniotomy to approach supratentorial lesions is quite well established in the literature. The use of craniotomy for posterior fossa approaches, however, is not well described. The aim of this article is to describe the technical aspects of this approach and to delineate the important landmarks. In our cases, posterior fossa craniotomies have been utilized for treat different pathologies. Additionally, the technique has not added any additional risk, and the cosmetic results have been excellent.  (+info)

Trigeminal neuralgia causes intense, shooting pains in one side of the face. It can be brought on by even minor changes, including shaving, brushing your teeth, going out on a windy day or eating. While the symptoms of problems with your temporomandibular joint (the jaw joint) can be similar to those of trigeminal neuralgia, there is no evidence that one triggers the other. Most patients with trigeminal neuralgia dont get investigated because it doesnt change the treatment you get. A swelling of an artery overlying the trigeminal nerve (called an aneurysm) or, even more uncommonly, nervous systems like multiple sclerosis can cause trigeminal neuralgia.

Based in Oxted, The Trigeminal Neuralgia Association UK (TNA UK) is a national charity providing information, support, and encouragement to those who suffer with, Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN).. The charity was founded 19 years ago by one of the worlds leading Trigeminal Neuralgia experts, Professor Joanna Zakrzewska together with a patient of the condition. The charitys aim is to raise awareness of TN within the medical community and the general public.. Most people have not heard of TN until they or a loved one are diagnosed with it. The trigeminal nerve, the largest nerve in the head, is the fifth cranial nerve and its primary function is to send pain messages to the brain. TN is an intermittent facial pain condition, often affecting one side of the face only, caused by the malfunctioning of one or more branches of the trigeminal nerve.. People with TN may experience excruciating, electric shock like pains following the lightest touch to a trigger area of the face and these pains can last from ...
Trigeminal neuralgia is intensely severe facial pain, which shoots across the face, lasting minutes to hours. This pain can involve any of the three sections of the trigeminal nerve, including the branches, which innervate the forehead and eye, the cheek, or the jaw. Trigeminal neuralgia is caused by compression of the trigeminal nerve by blood vessels. Trigeminal neuralgia is not life-threatening, but the pain - variously described as burning, stabbing, or like an electric shock - can be severe enough to cause physical and emotional distress.
Definition Trigeminal neuralgia, also known as Tic Douloureux, is a painful facial disorder. Ordinary triggers such as eating, washing, shaving, cold, heat, and draught, can elicit the pain.

By a twist of fate I ran across a petition that at the time had less than a couple hundred signatures created by TNNME. This petition was to a place called The World Health Organization and they where asking that Trigeminal Neuralgia be added to a thing called a health topics list. This peeked my curiosity wanting to know what would happen if it was added, I found out that it would mean every place in the world would have to report to them any cases of Trigeminal Neuralgia which would give us much needed statistics as to how many people are affected along with funding for research and education.

Neuralgias are disorders of the cranial nerves which result in intensely painful episodes for those affected. Neuralgias are associated with all of the cranial nerves: trigeminal neuralgia in the facial area, glossopharyngeal neuralgia in the throat, occipital neuralgia in the rear and side of the head, geniculate neuralgia in the ear, vegal neuralgia in the jaw, etc. Shingles, or post-herpetic neuralgia, can occur lower on the body (the ribcage, for instance), and is also accompanied by intense pain. This condition has led to the suggestion that the cranial neuralgias might be associated with herpes simplex infections of the nerves. Neuralgias are extremely painful; trigeminal neuralgia (tic doloroux) is thought to be the most painful condition known. Fortunately, there are avenues of treatment available. The most common drug treatment is carbamazepine (tegretol). Neurontin is also used. In cases where this does not work, and breakthrough pain cannot be controlled, microsurgery can be performed.

Patients were divided into those with typical trigeminal neuralgia (TN) and those with atypical trigeminal pain. The postprocedural rate of pain recurrence and associations between patient characteristics and recurrence were studied. Results: One hundred fifty-two patients had TN and 70 patients had atypical pain. At the last ...
Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) has evolved as an accepted treatment for medication resistant trigeminal neuralgia. Initial results are very good but follow-up over three to five years shows a gradual return of pain in up to 50% of treated patients, often requiring further treatment. The results with repeat SRS using the isocentric Gamma Knife (GK) (Elekta, Stockholm, Sweden), especially in patients having initially good results, are very similar to the outcomes after the initial treatment although there is an increased risk of residual facial numbness secondary to the additional radiation dose to the trigeminal nerve. However, after 2000, non-isocentric SRS systems began to be used for treating trigeminal neuralgia including the CyberKnife (CK) (Accuray, Sunnyvale, California) as well as various linear accelerator (LINAC) based systems. This report specifically examines a series of recurrent trigeminal cases treated by the same group of physicians with the CK system. Similar doses and locations on the

Neuralgia means pain coming from a nerve. In trigeminal neuralgia you have sudden pains that come from one or more branches of the trigeminal nerve. The pains are usually severe. The second and third branches are the most commonly affected. Therefore, the pain is usually around your cheek or jaw or both. The first branch is less commonly affected, so pain over your forehead and around your eye is less common. Trigeminal neuralgia usually affects one side of your face. Rarely, both sides are affected.. The pain is stabbing (like electric shocks), piercing, sharp, or knife-like. It usually lasts a few seconds but can last up to two minutes. The pain can be so sudden and severe that you may jerk or grimace with pain. The time between each pain may be minutes, hours, or days. Sometimes the pain is repeated in quick succession. After an attack of pain, you may have a dull ache and tenderness over the affected area, which soon eases. However, constant pain in the face is not usually a feature of ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Trigeminal neuralgia in young adults. AU - Bahgat, Diaa. AU - Ray, Dibyendu K.. AU - Raslan, Ahmed M.. AU - McCartney, Shirley. AU - Burchiel, Kim J.. PY - 2011/5/1. Y1 - 2011/5/1. N2 - Object. Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a form of facial pain that can be debilitating if left untreated. It typically affects elderly adults and is thought to be related to neurovascular compression. It is uncommon in people younger than 30 years of age, with only 1% of cases reportedly occurring in those younger than 20 years of age. The most common cause of compression in young adults is thought to be venous nerve compression either alone or in association with arterial nerve compression. The objective of this study was to review data in cases of TN in which patients were 25 years of age or younger and to identify TN disease characteristics, demographics, clinical features, operative findings, and outcome. Methods. The authors retrospectively reviewed the clinical records, surgical treatment, and ...

Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic pain condition that affects the trigeminal nerve, which carries sensation from your face to your brain. If you have trigeminal neuralgia, even mild stimulation of your face - such as from brushing your teeth or putting on makeup - may trigger a jolt of excruciating pain. You may initially experience short, mild attacks. But trigeminal neuralgia can progress and cause longer, more-frequent bouts of searing pain. Trigeminal neuralgia affects women more often than men, and its more likely to occur in people who are older than 50.. Because of the variety of treatment options available, having trigeminal neuralgia doesnt necessarily mean youre doomed to a life of pain. Doctors usually can effectively manage trigeminal neuralgia with medications, injections or surgery. ...
NaturalNews) Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical technique that involves the insertion of extremely fine needles on carefully chosen points throughout the body for therapeutic benefit. A recent study in the journal Medical Acupuncture demonstrated a significant beneficial effect when acupuncture treatments were administered to patients who were suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN). Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) manifests as a severe stabbing or electric shock-like pain along the path of the trigeminal nerve. The discomfort is usually felt on only one side of the face, generally in the area of the cheek, eye, and lower portion of the face. The mechanism of pain production is not fully understood, but studies suggest that TN is often associated with demyelination of trigeminal sensory fibers. ...

For the past 5 years I had convinced myself that there was very little I could do to eliminate trigeminal neuralgia. With the advice of my doctor, I tried to reduce my medication on several occasions, but was reminded very quickly of the severe pain and so I accepted that I would be taking pain killers for life. This all changed when I found that my current medication no longer masked the pain even though I had doubled the dosage. With the aid of the Internet and assistance by the local trigeminal neuralgia support group I began to educate myself. This book is part of my education; it brings all the various pieces of the puzzle together in a very informative yet easy to read manner. What could have caused this and what can I do to manage the pain, were questions I needed answered. I have made lifestyle changes as a result of this book and I am seeing improvement. I feel better equipped in asking the right questions of my doctor and am determined to overcome a condition that has dominated my life ...
Trigeminal neuralgia is not a congenital condition, but rather develops later in life - often after age 50. Initial symptoms may be mild twinges of pain in the face or jaw, which can easily be confused with other conditions, including migraine headache, dental problems, or TMJ. As the condition progresses, however, trigeminal neuralgia may produce many different symptoms including:

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 ...
QUOTE=hawk1;4960845]Does anyone else who has developed chemical sensitivity also experienced trigeminal nerve damage? When I first developed chemical sensitivity, it started with extreme burning in the face, nose and eyes. Once the burning eases up, my eye sockets will feel bruised for days afterwards. Chemicals do not have to smell to be present but I know that my reactions are starting when the burning starts in and I know to get away from the area immediately because the longer I stay around, my reactions will progress and pain will move into my chest and rib cage causing internal pain that can last for a couple of days to a week, depending on the exposure. I have been to EI specialists and not a one has mentioned the possibility of trigeminal neuralgia and I just happened on to an article that explains that chemical irritation can cause this condition, and the symptoms you experience.

Pudendal neuralgia is a chronic neuropathic pelvic pain that is often misdiagnosed and inappropriately treated. The Nantes criteria provide a basis for the diagnosis of pudendal neuralgia due to pudendal nerve entrapment. The 5 essential diagnostic criteria are pain situated in the anatomical territory of the pudendal nerve, worsened by sitting, the patient is not woken at night by the pain, and no objective sensory loss is detected on clinical examination. The fifth criterion is a positive pudendal nerve block. We have also clarified a number of complementary diagnostic criteria and several exclusion criteria that make the diagnosis unlikely. When pudendal neuralgia due to pudendal nerve entrapment is diagnosed according to the Nantes criteria, no further investigation is required and medical or surgical treatment can be proposed. Nevertheless, a number of warning signs suggesting other possible causes of pudendal neuralgia must not be overlooked. These warning signs (red flags) are waking up ...
Trigeminal-mediated headshaking is an idiopathic neuropathic facial pain syndrome in horses. There are clinical similarities to trigeminal neuralgia, a neuropathic facial pain syndrome in man, which is usually caused by demyelination of trigeminal sensory fibers within either the nerve root or, less commonly, the brainstem. Our hypothesis was that the neuropathological substrate of headshaking in horses is similar to that of trigeminal neuralgia in man. Trigeminal nerves, nerve roots, ganglia, infraorbital, and caudal nasal nerves from horse abattoir specimens and from horses euthanized due to trigeminal-mediated headshaking were removed, fixed, and processed for histological assessment by a veterinary pathologist and a neuropathologist with particular experience of trigeminal neuralgia histology. No histological differences were detected between samples from horses with headshaking and those from normal horses. These results suggest that trigeminal-mediated headshaking may have a different pathological

They are not the same thing. MOST people do NOT have entrapment. The information on the internet is full of mistakes regarding this delineation; and theres a big difference. Pudendal Neuralgia (PN) refers to pain along the distribution of the nerve - the pudendal nerve has 3 primary branches that go toward the anus, the perineum and the clitoris or penis. Pudendal neuralgia does not mean that the nerve is damaged or trapped. There are many reasons for this neuralgia - a local nerve irritation from inflammation, tight muscles/connective tissue, vascular compression, mechanical compression (i.e. sitting for too long in a position with too much pressure), etc. Neuralgias are not always present and the intensity may change for a person.. Pudendal Nerve Entrapment (PNE) will also have symptoms of Pudendal Neuralgia, but in this case. the nerve is trapped and patients describe the pain as unrelenting and not necessarily modified with any changes in position, but maybe just worse with sitting. These ...
Carius and Schulze-Bonhage [34] reported late-onset trigeminal pain in 3 out of 27 implanted patients (11.1%), whereas we found it in 2 out of 47 implanted patients longer than one year after implantation (4.3%). Carius and Schulze-Bonhage proposed mechanisms of central sensitization as the probable cause of the reported pain [34]. Later, Spitz et al. [37] reported a case with a small discontinuity in the lead silicone insulation that led to vocal cord paralysis, impaired breathing and cervical, mandibular, pharyngeal and dental pain. The electrode impedance was normal. The problems started in the early titration period, and the maximum tolerated stimulation current intensity was low (0.5 mA maximum). Spitz et al. [37] postulated that the aberrant spread of current through the disrupted insulation likely accounted for other reports of stimulation-related pain (referred trigeminal pain, tonsillar pain, sometimes delayed onset). In other cases, where device malfunction was confirmed, clinical ...
Vago-glossopharyngeal neuralgia (VGPN) is a rarely seen disease when compared to trigeminal neuralgia. When the pain is resistant to medical therapy, microvascular decompression can be performed if a vascular conflict is suspected on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In addition, arachnoid pathology may play a role in VGPN. We report two cases of VGPN caused by tethered arachnoid, associated with a vascular contact in which pain was reduced by freeing rootlets from arachnoid compression. We report two cases relating to 50-year-old and 30-year-old men with a history of electric shooting pain triggered by swallowing in the right pharyngeal and auricular regions ...

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 ...

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 ...

Trigeminal neuropathic pain is the most debilitating pain disorder but current treatments including opiates are not effective. A common symptom of trigeminal neuropathic pain is cold allodynia/hyperalgesia or cold hypersensitivity in orofacial area, a region where exposure to cooling temperatures are inevitable in daily life. Mechanisms underlying trigeminal neuropathic pain manifested with cold hypersensitivity are not fully understood. In this study, we investigated trigeminal neuropathic pain in male rats following infraorbital nerve chronic constrictive injury (ION-CCI). Assessed by the orofacial operant behavioral test, ION-CCI animals displayed orofacial cold hypersensitivity. The cold hypersensitivity was associated with the hyperexcitability of small-sized trigeminal ganglion (TG) neurons that innervated orofacial regions. Furthermore, ION-CCI resulted in a reduction of A-type voltage-gated K+ currents (IA currents) in these TG neurons. We further showed that these small-sized TG neurons ...

In this study the diagnostic value of high-resolution 3D-CISS and 3D-TOF MRA at 3T compared with 1.5T in NVC is assessed. Some patients with trigeminal neuralgia, hemifacial spasm, and glossopharyngeal neuralgia have lesions visible on conventional MR imaging, but in most cases, the symptoms are caused by NVC and this condition usually requires further evaluation with high-resolution MR imaging. Although NVC is often caused by larger arteries, it may be also caused by smaller arterial branches or veins. High-resolution 3D-MRA (eg, 3D-TOF MRA) and 3D-T2WI (eg, 3D-CISS) are well-established sequences used for the preoperative assessment of NVC.14,15,21⇓-23 The sections can be very thin (,1 mm) and without gaps, thereby ensuring high resolution. Because some of the compressing vessels have a diameter ,2 mm, a section thickness of 3 mm in conventional MR imaging may miss the pathology.6. The most important advantage of high-field MR imaging is its high SNR,16,24⇓-26 which can be used to scan at ...
Background: Recent data suggests that in chronic pain there are changes in gray matter consistent with decreased brain volume, indicating that the disease process may produce morphological changes in the brains of those affected. However, no study has evaluated cortical thickness in relation to specific functional changes in evoked pain. In this study we sought to investigate structural (gray matter thickness) and functional (blood oxygenation dependent level - BOLD) changes in cortical regions of precisely matched patients with chronic trigeminal neuropathic pain (TNP) affecting the right maxillary (V2) division of the trigeminal nerve. The model has a number of advantages including the evaluation of specific changes that can be mapped to known somatotopic anatomy. Methodology/Principal Findings: Cortical regions were chosen based on sensory (Somatosensory cortex (SI and SII), motor (MI) and posterior insula), or emotional (DLPFC, Frontal, Anterior Insula, Cingulate) processing of pain. Both ...

All of the nerves seen in the dentaform above are branches of the maxillary branch of the trigeminal nerve which originates at the semilunar ganglion. The nerve at the top of the dissection is called the infraorbital nerve. It is a branch of the maxillary nerve which is the second division of the trigeminal nerve. The maxillary nerve and all its sub branches are colored green in the illustration to the right. The infraorbital nerve runs just beneath the orbit (eye socket) and exits through the infraorbital foramen. It gives sensation to the skin between the lower eyelid, the nose and the upper lip, as well as to the mucous membrane in the upper anterior part of the mouth.. Do you suffer from Trigeminal Neuralgia??, click here.. The small nerves breaking off the maxillary branch just before the infraorbital branch, and going to the tips of the roots of the teeth, are collectively called the superior dental plexus. The plexus is innervated by a group of four branches of the maxillary nerve. These ...

Douglas Kondziolka, MD, a researcher and neurosurgeon at the NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City, who has performed many thousands of Gamma Knife procedures, said: Gamma Knife radiosurgery is an excellent example of how evolving cancer care technologies are addressing growing demand for precision medicine, where treatments can be precisely tailored to an individuals unique anatomy and biologic makeup while simultaneously helping to reduce the risk of damaging healthy tissue. As one of the most comprehensively studied tools in the neurosurgery armamentarium, we can confidently offer this treatment option as a minimally invasive alternative to traditional brain surgery or whole brain radiation therapy for properly selected patients.. Using up to 192 precisely focused sources of radiation, Gamma Knife can be used to control both malignant and nonmalignant tumors, as well as for treating arteriovenous malformations, essential tremor and trigeminal neuralgia while limiting damage to ...
Hyperactive disorders related to neurovascular compression have been described for several cranial nerves of which trigeminal neuralgia and hemifacial spasm are the best known. The present report on four patients, in conjunction with previous reports, suggests that paroxysmal staccato tinnitus might be considered an auditory hyperactivity disorder of the eighth cranial nerve. The present patients reported attacks, usually lasting 10-20 s, of loud monaural tinnitus with a staccato character (eg, clattering or sounding like a machine gun). The attacks occurred very frequently, sometimes every minute. The attacks were spontaneous but they were also provoked by certain head positions or by exposure to loud sounds. Most of the patients did not reveal any significant eighth cranial nerve sensory loss and thus it is probably not advisable to rely on any specific test result for this diagnosis. Instead, it is suggested that a diagnosis of paroxysmal staccato tinnitus can be based on the history as the ...
Occipital neuralgia (ON) presents with lancinating (often mixed with more aching) occipital pain, which can be very disabling. There are a number of conditions which present, like ON, with posterior pain; but tenderness of the greater occipital nerve and response to greater occipital nerve anesthetic blockade are essentially pathognomonic. ...
For the treatment of this disease, you must first remove the unpleasant sensation of pain caused by the defeat of the intercostal nerves.Physiotherapy procedures and acupuncture treated neuralgia.The symptoms and treatment, depending on the exact diagnosis, different..

Background and Objectives: Nervus Intermedius neuralgia is a rare and difficult to suspect entity. This study aims to present the case of intermedius neuralgia, discusses the implications of the phenotype in the patient approach, as well as the role of quantitative susceptibility testing (QST), as an important tool in the diagnosis and therapeutic management. Case report: 40-year-old female patient, smoker, accompanied by neurology (generalized tonic-clonic seizures), in use of carbamazepine. During one of the seizures, she said fall from height, resulting in fracture of the left temporal bone and ipsilateral facial paralysis. After to optimal the therapy, she had no more seizures, but evolved with paroxysmal pain, shock-like, located in the groove between the ear and scalp at high intensity, with shooting area in the wall of the external auditory channel. Reports that had more crisis with the arrival of winter. The examination revealed mechanical hyperalgesia and wind-up phenomenon on the affected
TY - JOUR. T1 - Cadaveric nerve allotransplantation in the treatment of persistent thoracic neuralgia. AU - Barbour, John R.. AU - Yee, Andrew. AU - Moore, Amy M.. AU - Trulock, Elbert P.. AU - Buchowski, Jacob M.. AU - Mackinnon, Susan E.. PY - 2015/4/1. Y1 - 2015/4/1. N2 - When relief from neuralgia cannot be achieved with traditional methods, neurectomy may be considered to abate the stimulus, and primary opposition of the terminal nerve ending is recommended to prevent neuroma. Nerve repair with autograft is limited by autologous nerves available for large nerve defects. Cadaveric allografts provide an unlimited graft source without donor-site morbidities, but are rapidly rejected unless appropriate immunosuppression is achieved. An optimal treatment method for nerve allograft transplantation would minimize rejection while simultaneously permitting nerve regeneration. This report details a novel experience of nerve allograft transplantation using cadaveric nerve grafts to desensitize ...
According to the levels of evidence published by the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine[18], this cohort study provides Level 2b evidence that specific manual mobilisation techniques and motor control exercises for the lumbopelvic region, together with postural advice and education, have a positive influence on pain and sexual dysfunction in a specific subgroup of patients presenting with pudendal neuralgia. In addition to pudendal neuralgia, patients were only included in this study if they also had signs of a lumbopelvic dysfunction and no evidence of urological pathology. Pain and sexual dysfunction improved significantly at the end of the treatment period and the improvement was maintained at three months follow-up.. The improvement in sexual function was more varied than the reduction in pain. Besides urologicial[19] and pain of musculoskeletal origin[20], there are many causes of sexual dysfunction. These include smoking[21], alcohol and substance use [22], diabetes[23] and cardiovascular ...
By Stephanie Prendergast. I treated my first patient with Pudendal Neuralgia in 2002. As a young, excitable pelvic floor physical therapist, I was on a mission to help people suffering from pelvic pain and thought it would be just like what they said in PT school: stretch, strengthen, achieve goals, discharge. So when my patient began treatment for PN, I was already anticipating the nice thank-you note Id soon receive. However, at that time I had no idea how much pain and suffering I would witness in the coming years, how frustrated I would become with the medical community, the healthcare systems in the US and abroad, and with the overall lack of guidance when trying to treat a syndrome that prominent medical institutions did not believe was even real. For the record, every peripheral nerve in the body is vulnerable to injury and therefore is capable of becoming a Neuralgia. Additionally, any person with PN has likely been told at least once that Pudendal Neuralgia is not a thing, ...
