Shock like pains that are triggered on sleeping on one side, moving the ear. Pain radiates from ear to jaw. Is it trigeminal neuralgia?

Hi, I think I may have trigeminal neuralgia . I have the shock like severe pain associated with the condition.... they are triggered after i sleep on my left side, but can be brought on by moving my ear. but the only deviation from typical is that the ain goes from my ear down my jaw line. But symptoms do not resemble other neuralgias . could I still have this, but just a variant?

Thank for asking to HMC
This is does not seems "Trigeminal Neuralgia" from the history given here I could say that this could be due to the poor posture during sleeping and that might be compression the nerve try to sleep in good posture if you maintain good posture during sleeping then you would get the best relief from the symptom that you have, take care and have nice day.
