TGN usually by triggers. Need Neurological examina
Thanks for your reply.
As you suspected, the pain may be due to Trigeminal neuralgia
Both trigeminal neuralgia and Ice pick share the common features.
But Trigeminal neuralgia is most frequently triggered by washing, shaving, smoking
, talking and/or brushing the teeth.
There is no such trigger factors in Ice Pick Headache.
More over trigeminal neuralgia usually affect the chin and cheek.
But both should be concluded only after thorough neurological and local physical examination.
If there is any neurological findings, this should be ruled out by further investigations like MRI
and CT scan
Thus you need thorough neurological examination and further investigation to rule out any neurological cause.
Hope this helps.
Please write back for further queries.
Wishing you good health.
