On only a few occasions have I been slightly involved in the treatment from the technology point. I worked in Neuroradiology for 8 years at a university hospital. It's been a while though and I'm sure treatments have changed.

SOmetimes it's hard to distinguish this from a severe toothache.

Also consider temporomandibular joint problems.

Thanks to both of you. The severe trigeminal is a definite diagnosis and temporal arteritis is now also being investigated so your suggestion was very relevant, Miller, thx. No jaw problems though but have some other symptoms.

Are you seeing a neurologist or a neurosurgeon for this?

Yes, have been seeing a neurologist and urgent appt now booked for a different neurologist. But none of the pain compares with what one's family can do to hurt. Thx.
