Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 10 months ago

how old is he?

does he grind his teeth? this can cause TMJ jaw joint pain.

or his pain can be from trigeminal neuralgia

he would need a brain MRI scan to check for this.

Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 10 months ago

he may have to be checked for trigeminal neuralgia with a brain MRI scan

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
