For the last few months I have been getting severe pains above my right eyebrow and under my left one (especially when its cold). It hurts quite a bit and gets worse when i touch it. My dad has trigeminal problems, only really bad, and I was wandering if i might have like a smaller version of it?
TN is a diagnosis of ruling everything else out. My suggestion would be that you keep a pain journal -- where the pain occurs, how it feels (sharp, aching, "electric", etc); when it occurs, how long it lasts. Then go see your primary care doc or since your symptoms almost sound like sinus trouble -- maybe an ENT (Ear, Nose, Throat).
Even though some TN can have hereditary factors, I hope your symptoms turn out to be something else and that "something else" can be fixed easily.
Start this pranayam twice a day, and let me know if the pain is still there in 21 days.
Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute.
