Pressure back of the tongue? Really weird

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello friends;

Shortly;my problems occurred 6 months ago after dental treatment in left up side.Burning cheeks and pain with cold weather morely. Not sudden pain mostly continous boring ache and feeling tingling and burning in my tip of my tongue very severe specially tongue part. I have already mentioned this problem in my previous topic very longly.

I used lyrica 75 mg/2 dose in a day mornings and evenings for 4 months. Not really help also lyrica makes my tongue tingling sensation worsened. I quited lyrica one month ago.Now ı use just b complex highly,omega 3 and b12 pills.

In sum up;

I have see 7 good neurologist,1 ent and 2 dentist.

In sum up;there is no dental problem on see x-ray.

Not ear or nose like siinuses problem.

5 neurologist said that this is not a trigeminal neuralgia but not really put diagnosis 4 of them said a atypical facial pain in paper but not surely. Nothing see on brain mr just see a closest nerve and vein but not proof of this problem they said. Not really pressure can see on my brain mr.

Lastly ı saw a another neurologist which as master at this Trigeminal Nerve isssues and she said ı should make a contrast injection brain mr to make it more clear diagnosed. 10 days later ı am going to be brain mr with contrast injection. 

I want to ask you friends anyone have pressure back of one side tongue in deep. It makes me really nausea and more sensitive to gag reflex. Like tingling and prickling sensation. I asked it because all neurologist says that is not symptom of neuralgia or something like that.

Thanks for listening.

    I've been told that the Trigeminal Nerve (5th cranial nerve) is the largest of the 12 cranial nerves. There are two of them - left and right. They exit under the brain. The trigeminal nerve controls facial movement and many other functions. I would think that TN could easily manifest itself in parts of the tongue, roof of the mouth and generally most areas of the face. I had the same issue with my tongue at times. The pain would also change areas from time to time in an orbital manner. I don't think that TN would show up on a scan, but I'm no doctor. See the link.

    No pressure just constant numbness. If not taken care of turns to pain. I use CBD to help relax the nerves & muscles,  in the morning & evening. It does not make my mind foggy like muscles relaxants or other meds. prescribed to me for the pain. Hope they are able to see what is causing your condition on the MRI with contrast.

      Thanks. Is CBD is illegal or any brand name can you advise? Specially b complex makes me more comfortable ı can advise to you use but not much. Are your tingling or numbness sensation makes u sometimes sudden coughing or not ? Because not always but often it makes coughing or hard to speak like its more likely feeling sore tongue.I hope to see what is causing that.

    Yes CBD is legal in all states. Brand that I use is Green Roads, I can get it locally, but can buy on internet. I smoke a vape pen in the morning & night daily. Depending on shocks I have a cream that I apply to area. Or I have drops taken under the tongue if shocks continues. 

    I always use vape pen to maintain nerves relaxed and other things as needed. Hope that helps, I encourage you to research it different uses. What I like the most it is natural and no side affects. Hope that helps😊

    Trigiminal Neuralgia will not show up on an MRI, but a compression of the trigiminal nerve or blood vessels can show. Either of these can show on an MRI which can cause trigiminal neuralgia.  If any of these show on MRI it is easier to treat pain, by decompression of the one causing the problem. Hope all goes well😊
