Do I Need MRI Of Brain If Suffering From Left Sided Facial Pain?

I m a 62 yer old female in great health. Blood pressure 112/76. I ve been on glaucoma watch for over 20 years now. I just saw my opthalmologist and my eye pressure was 14 and 15. At that time, I was not experiencing any pain over my left eye. Just a couple weeks ago I started feeling a slight pain over my left eye, down to left ear and the left side of my neck. The pain is very slight; I m not taking any pain killers. I have a family history of brain aneurysms and about ten years ago, I had an MRA of the brain. The surgeon who operated on my sister s brain (she had three aneurysms) , wanted all family members to have an MRA of the brain. Does this pain on the left side of my face sound serious? Should I get another MRA of my brain since the last one was about ten years ago?

Hello,

Unfortunately ma'am, you need to do another MRA to the brain to exclude any organic disease, especially you do have positive family history.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Salah Saad Shoman
