Prolonged Toothache And Trigeminal Neuralgia?
Hello. Good night. My name is a 23-year-old prastiwi, permission to ask questions about trigeminal-neuralgia disease in my entire life. I have never felt a new tooth skit on November 15, 2019, I felt an incredible toothache. from the middle left teeth down to the left lower back molars. the pain sometimes comes sometimes it goes. I went to health facilities 1 in 2 different provincial health facilities to two of them said my teeth were fine, there were no holes and tartar. take enough medication from ponstan, mefenamic acid, diclofenac sodium, voltadex, cataflam, amoxilin all of them just seem to eliminate the pain but still, it still hurts. my sleep is disturbed because I often wake up because of the pain. Complaining is not a pain in his teeth, but it may be more to his nerves. The color of his scalp tastes so dizzy to my left side and because it is recommended by the doctor to do it. Like sensitive toothpaste I’ve also used it, but after the toothbrush it feels sore and when I drink water it hurts too. Sometimes I can hold it sometimes until I cry. How can I do it? Sorry and thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com.
Trigeminal neuralgia is a pain caused by inflammation of the nerves that innervates the area around the face, including the area around the mouth and teeth.
Trigeminal neuralgia is characterized by stabbing pain, from the head, eyes, cheeks to the mouth or teeth.
This complaint is spread according to the innervation of the trigeminal nerve (which innervates the face).
To reduce complaints, you can take temporary pain medications such as paracetamol. However, you better do is consult directly with a neurologist.
Prevention can be done:
Reducing eating hard, cold or overly sensitive food
Maintain the cleanliness of the area around the teeth and mouth
Consult a neurologist immediately
Thus hopefully useful
