Default My dentist thinks I might have TN

Good evening everyone,

I'm new to the forum and was wondering if anyone can help me out. I recently went to the dentist and he thinks i may have trigeminal neuralgia. I explained to him that every time after a teeth cleaning my lower left side gum (where my wisdom tooth use to be) gets a little inflamed i would get a stabbing headache/jabbing headache. It's in the back of my head and it hurts to touch. It happens every 10-30 seconds and the pain is for about 2 seconds or so. It triggers when i brush my hair near the back of my head. Or even if i touch my hair near the back of my head. If i leave my hand on where the pain is, it will not hurt. But if i wait like a minute and use my fingers to brush my hair i would feel it. It normally last for about a day to 2 days then goes away. Usually the headache happens when the left side gum (where my wisdom tooth use to be) gets a little inflamed. I have not experience facial pain.
Does anyone have similar symptoms to this? And does this sound like Trigeminal Neuralgia? I've probably been experiencing this for like 5-6 years(i get this maybe once or twice a year). If anyone can help, please let me know. Thank you so much in advance!

Hi victorsvictory

Welcome to NeuroTalk .

I have no personal experience of TN but from this link it sounds likely to me Trigeminal neuralgia - Symptoms and causes - Mayo Clinic .

Best wishes.

Thank you for your reply Kiwi and the information and the website. Has any other members who have TN have headache in the back of the head like i have? I've read many post on the forum and many members has pain the face/jaw/teeth. Any one has symptoms similar to mines? Also, i been reading up on Nummular headache and it sounds more like what i have. Wopuld any members like to share their first symptoms with me? Thank you.

Default figuring it out

i am sorry for your disruptive life right now. I know it makes it so hard not knowing when it will show up. I think if you go see a neurologist and he probably could give you more information.
