I believe I have some form of atypical trigeminal neuralgia, but only of the V1 opthalmic division.
There is one small, circular spot of pain on the top right side of my head that is dormant when I first wake up, but as I start doing anything, it comes to life and starts hurting.
It seems to “flare” up and get aggravated by mental effort, and especially anything particularly stressful or concentration intensive.
I would describe the pain as a boring, sometimes crushing type pain.
Most of the right side of my head/face feels different than the left side. In general I would say that at baseline it just feels more sensitive than the left. I am just more aware of the presence of the right side of my face.
I was wondering if anyone could tell by my description if they believe it to be atypical TN, or perhaps something else.
I do have migraine-type problems as well, not sure if they are related to the suspected nerve pain or not. Thank you.
