just recently I have suffered  nerve pain numbness tingling in my cheek ear area LHS the nerve raw pain iis to the upper jaw along 3/4 teeth.. Post this I have als suffered a Migraine headache with intense pain.. I think is the blood vessels.. I drank some red wine and it stopped layed down also.. I think a bright light trigger and loud noise of me singing at the time induced the pain. The pain was unbearable.. Do I need a brain scan to check the vessels in my head.. My Mother died of a dense stroke.

    Hi, your the first person on the forum who has same symptons, I had 2 teeth removed as I thought it was my teeth causing the pain.

    please keep me informed, I have tried everything nothing works, cupping has slightly helped

      I read up on it and it apparently is when a blood vessel becomes enlarged a dilates pressing on a nerve.... Ice pack I found better and rest also moving into a certain position.. Preferablably not laying on the side effected..anti inflammatory tabs like  Nerofen..  The symptoms can cause you to think it's the teeth.. Sucking ice cubes also helps.

      please let me know if you find anything else that relates to this

      I have to say I do feel a lot of pulling in my head when I have a migraine that must be the blood vessel

      I also had 2 teeth removed years ago due to tooth pain since then with doing much research about it I have found its called Atypical Ondontalgia and there really is no pain relief for it. I've had it now about 9 years. I was put on Lyric for it but it's useless.

      I've been trying these past few weeks to get off Lyrica I've managed to get down from 400mg now to 150mg daily but not without its issues because of withdrawal symptoms surfacing as anxiety. I'm going to have to remain on thus 85mg x 2 times daily for longer than I wanted to. I tried missing one dose at bedtime the other night but the anxiety the next morning wasn't worth it.

    Yes is very worrying indeed! we all need to be a bit more attentive with things we know little about especially the Brain.. I have Nursed people including my Mother who had a dense strokes its severe and debilitating to say the least and not a kind condition for anyone to be in.. Mine is to do with the Blood vessles ..I am sure ..get sensations in the ear the eyes sometimes. and have had a couple of Migraine headaches in my life not many though ..the last on Saturday this week was intense and ..I had to leave where I was and what I was doing I had blurred vision like a fog some hours after..I am on Propanalol daily @ Beta Blocka /Naproxen which is an Anti-inflammatory drug. I use the ice for the nerve pain and drink Red wine which dilates the Blood Vessles ..I drink at least one glass a day with my Dinner..it helps.
