I understand your concern.
From what you describe I feel that you may be having trigeminal neuralgia.
The second possibility is TMJ syndrome.
Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a condition that causes sudden and severe pain in parts of the face. TN is caused by a problem with the trigeminal nerve, which is a nerve that runs from the brain to the face.
TN causes attacks of sharp and stabbing pain in the cheek, lower face, or around the eye. The pain lasts a few seconds to a few minutes, and usually happens on only one side of the face. The attacks can happen over and over again.
Often, certain movements or activities make the pain attacks happen. These can include:
●Touching the face
●Brushing the teeth
●Smiling or frowning
●Cold air on the face
TN can also cause muscle spasms in the face, along with pain.
Your doctor or nurse should be able to tell if you have TN by learning about your symptoms and doing an exam.
They might do tests to get more information about your TN or what's causing it. These tests can include an MRI or CT scan of your brain. These are imaging tests that can create pictures of your brain.
This is treatable. The one used most often to treat TN is called Carbamazepine. There are several others, too. These medicines quiet the nerve signals that cause pain in TN.
If you want I would be glad to explian you more about TMJ too.
May I suggest you discuss this with your primary care physician and get yourself appropriately evaluated and managed please.
