trigeminal nerve block?

Has anyone had a trigeminal nerve block for TMJ muscle pain? I asked my doctor about it, and he said he would try it. Has anyone done this, and how did it work?

Thanks.

Hello,
First of all trigeminal nerve problems are not considered tmj to my knowledge.
THat is a separate medical condition, I am not sure if it can coexist with
tmj or not. maybe if the muscles are spasming it can put pressure on the
trigeminal nerve.

Re: trigeminal nerve block?

I've considered this, even though I'm told it creates problems with biting the inside of your mouth, etc. I was diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia for 8 years, but with all the info I've gathered over the years, think it is more a TMJ problem--especially since my TMJ treatment (splint) initially got rid of the pain. I'm sure you can experience trigeminal nerve pain because of TMJ. Search the internet and you'll find articles on this. I'm trying acupuncture today to see how that works.
