The Forehead Feels Like Being Shocked From The Inside?
Hello, good afternoon. This afternoon, after the last incident which was the end of 2016, around my forehead again it felt like I was electrocuted from inside gt, after searching through Google it turned out to be a symptom of trigeminal neuralgia. Please help, thank you.
Thank you for your question.
Sensations such as electric shocks that are felt around the forehead are indeed one of them can indicate trigeminal neuralgia. This condition most often occurs due to contact with blood vessels in the base of the brain which causes the trigeminal nerve to be depressed and function impaired. Triggers of this disease can vary, for example aging, nerve disorders (such as due to multiple sclerosis, stroke), tumors that suppress the trigeminal nerve, injuries, side effects of surgery, and so on. Trigeminal nerve stimulation, such as when touched, eat, drink, tie teeth, talk, use cosmetics, smile, wash face, and so on can make pain due to trigeminal neuralgia increasingly become.
Not just trigeminal neuralgia, sensations such as electric shock on your forehead may also be caused by other factors, such as malnutrition, post-herpetic neuralgia, migraine, cluster headache, cerebral aneurysm, brain tumor, tired eyes, rhinosinusitis, stress, irritant contact dermatitis , etc.
This condition, should be treated first with the application of a warm compress in order to subside. In addition, you also need to sleep early and regularly, don't look at gadgets excessively, manage stress and anxiety well, drink 2-3 liters of water a day, eat a variety of balanced nutritionally valued foods (especially those containing lots of vitamins B1, B6, and B12), and discipline is always in living a healthy lifestyle. If with these efforts your complaints are still recurring, immediately check with your doctor or neurologist to find the right solution huh ..
I hope this helps.
