Referred Pain, Is this TN?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi All,

For the past 4-5 weeks I have been suffering with pain in my temple region but only when I touch a specific spot directly below my nose, the pain in my temple area will only be present when im touching/rubbing this particular spot. So far no other symptoms.

My doctor is not sure what this is but I have an MRI booked in next week. I cant find any related information on TN and referred pain, does anyone have any experiences like this?

its such a strange symptom getting pain in a different place to what you are touching!
