Does anyone have any information about this indication please?
Hello, @bride, and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Here are two helpful articles from the National Institutes of Health on midfacial pain syndrome/segment pain:
– Midfacial segment pain: implications for rhinitis and sinusitis https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15056400
– Management of Chronic Facial Pain https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3052669/
Sounds as though some classify this type of facial pain as a subset of trigeminal neuralgia. Do you agree? Also, do you have midsegment facial pain personally?
Thank you Lisa. I do have this diagnosis after being misdiagnosed with sinusitis. What I mostly feel is pressure over my nose and a feeling of sensitivity in the nasal passages. I have had non allergic rhinitis for years but this is different. However for the moment it seems manageable with occasional painkillers. I would however really appreciate any input or advice. Or, if I can offer any.
