thanks for your query
to be frank the symptoms you have given are very vague .facial pain
can due to varied causes but yes il definitely try helping you out.firstly try remembering
1.did you have any dental procedure done few days before the pain started ?
2.do you have any family tensions or problems (more so relevant if you are female)
3.are you having history of headache or pain just in front of your ear (both sides? or only single side)
4.is your age around 20 -30?
after all these if its yes for
if1.then it is due to nerve injury
or muscle injury during L.a. injection or due to prolonged mouth opening.
if 2. then it can be musculo skeletal disorder due to stress.
if 3 then TMJ disorder
you need to then have its investigations.or can be due to sinusitis
(cold) or migrane.
if 4.then mostly due to wisdom tooth eruption
.u need to get an O.P.G. done in this.
chances of tumor or nerve palsy
can too be there but these are too grave that you would have got diagnosed earlier itself ..
and yes chances of it being trigeminal neuralgia
are less as you have mentioned first pain was on right then left and trigeminal neuralgias are always unilateral that is just one side.
hope this little info can be use to you.
