Trigeminal Neuralgia - Maybe??
HELP! I am undiagnosed. I have been having what appeared to be parotid glad issues similar to first bite syndrome. A sharp pain at the salivary gland upon the first bite or drink. Pain last about 6 - 10 seconds. Pain is below and in front of my right ear. CT scan negative for stones or tumor. area on outside of face sensitive to touch. Pain is only after first bite. Remainder of meal is pain free and I am pain free until after I take the first bite of another meal.
Went to clinic today for tendonitis in ankle and PA reviewed my file and asked if I was still experiencing pain. When I told her I was she wrote Trigeminal Neuralgia down and said go have a look. I have checked this out and lo and behold alot of the symtoms to seem very similar to TN. Anyone out there think this may be what I am suffering from?
