Can a Brain MRI detect inflammation to the Trigeminal Nerve?

I have a lot of pain in the face, mostly in the nose and cheek area. I had a Sinus CT Scan done, and the results came normal. I think the pain could be a nerve-related problem. I read online that the Trigeminal Nerve is responsible for facial sensation.
Another strong possibility is "TMJ disorder".

Unless it is reeeealy small inflammation than yeah it should be able to.  (+ info)

Odd facial nerve tic, is this normal?

Sometimes when i'm touched under the jaw, neck or even on the feet, it can set a nerve off in my jaw. The nerve pulsates and feels extremely weird, I can't really explain it. It shoots up through to my eye (and can depend on which side of the jaw the nerve sets off with what side i am touched)

I think that this is a normal occurrence but my friends don't think it is.
They keep being smart asses about it and teasing me

Can people confirm that this is normal so they get off my back

=) thanks.

I'm not sure it's average ... but it sounds like it's normal for you.  (+ info)

Can any facial piercing cause blindness?

I've heard that in rare cases, people have lost their sight when the piercer has hit an optical nerve when piercing their eyebrow, nose or helix. Are the optical nerves concentrated exclusively in the above areas, or do you run this risk getting any facial piercing?

Unless they pierce your eye your sight will not be affected.  (+ info)

DOCTORS: The needle from an ANATHESIA injection (for ear surgery) hit a facial nerve, & my face went NUMB...?

Will the feeling ever come back? Are there remedies available? (My face is about 40% numb), and I feel as if the numbness is spreading over different regions of my face. It's been almost a year.

if it has been that long then i very much doubt the feeling will come back. you need to see your doctor for some support.  (+ info)

Do I have facial nerve damage, or is this normal post-surgery?

I had my two bottom wisdom teeth taken out at 1:30pm yesterday. I was put right to sleep because of how close the teeth were to the nerve. The dentist told me that he had to take the one on the right side out in pieces because the facial nerve was wrapped right around the root of the tooth.

I've had feeling back in the left side of my face since 5pm yesterday, but I still have no sensation in the right side. It's now 7:30am. From the corner of my jaw bone up, I can feel pain, but from the corner of my jawbone to the middle of my lip on the right side of my face is still completely numb. I'll sometimes get itches there can try to scratch them but it doesn't work because my lip cannot feel my finger on it.

Is this facial nerve damage and should I call the dentist or is it normal to get sensation back on one side long before the other side?

There has been some traumatic damage done to the nerve (it is the mandibular nerve and not the facial nerve). You should see the dentist and let him advise you as what to expect. This is called paresthesia and can last for a few days or several months before complete regeneration of the nerve occurs. This is because nerve tissue heals very slowly. In most cases there is full recovery. Everything depends as to the extent of the damage. Good luck.  (+ info)

Can facial paralyzation result from sleeping near and open window with a breeze?

I heard from my mother that your face can be paralyzed by sleeping next to a window with a breeze. She said something about nerve damage to the face but if that's the case how can a person go out on a windy day. Is there legitimacy behind this or is it just an Asian urban myth?

It's VERY much an urban myth. I promise you.  (+ info)
