I have facial pain called atypical facial pain because I don't fall into just one kind of facial pain. My MRI shows there is no abnormality but I still have facial pain every now and then.
In a response ( March 9th. MS& TN) you said, " In terms of TN and MRI scans we know that imaging may or may not reveal an abnormality. Although helpful MRI is not always correlated with underlying adnormality."
Does that mean that I could still have an adnormality that is causing my facial pain? What, if any, test than can be done to check for the cause of my facial pain? Doctors seem to go with the MRI to rule out an adnormality. Thanks very much for having this.
