Hello Riezka, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Pain in the face can be caused by a variety of conditions. The cause of pain in the face can be caused by disruption in facial innervation or due to other diseases. here are some things that can cause pain in the face:
Infection in the oral cavity
Sinus inflammation or sinusitis
Some of these conditions can cause pain in the face. Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic pain that occurs due to abnormalities in the trigeminal nerve, where the trigeminal nerve supplies the sides of the face, so that one can feel sensations on the face due to the trigemnial nerve. The pain that appears is usually severe pain such as stabbing, or like a stinging electric sensation. And this pain usually occurs on one side of the face only. Pain in trigeminal neuralgia can occur within a few seconds but recur hundreds of times a day.
Infection or inflammation of the oral cavity and sinus region can also cause facial pain. Pain caused by infection or inflammation of the oral cavity arises due to pain over, for example if you have an infection in the teeth, pain can also occur to the face and head. In addition, inflammation of the throat can also cause pain on the face, but the pain that is felt is usually not specific to one side of the face.
Because there are many possible causes of facial pain, we recommend that you see a doctor. If the cause is a neurological disorder this can be a serious medical problem and requires immediate treatment. For example trigeminal neuralgia can be a symptom that occurs in a stroke, multiple sclerosis. Therefore to make sure you should check with a neurologist. The doctor will then ascertain whether the complaint originates from the nerves or not by conducting a direct nerve examination on you. In addition, if needed, an examination such as MRI can be done. To temporarily reduce pain you can take pain medications such as ibuprofen or paracetamol.
