ENT doctor diagnose neuralgia?
I have right lower jaw pain under ear,ear pain and neck pain for 5 months now. Went to ENT in June. He did Endo and no Infection in sinus and ear. Went to dentist and he told few issues and I did those treatment. He still believe tooth fracture causing these symptoms. He also said to check if it's tmjd or eagle syndrome. My general physician is telling me to check if it's trigeminal neuralgia. My symptoms are constant burning pain in lower jaw under ear, burning neck pain with mild swelling in the right side, ear pain and clogged, small lump on side of the neck (taken USG,no abnormalities found), ringing in ear, soft humming sound in ear while lying down when ac or fan is on, ear completely feel clogged,sore pain on one spot on top of head above ear, constant feeling of something stuck in throat, neck feel tight and stiff. I want to go back to ENT to check about this. Whether ent will diagnose neuralgia or nerve issue? This pain started on may when I was chewing food more than usual.

If there is no obvious pathology detected in examination you should visit neurologist. They will give final diagnosis from their clinical experience and MRI brain.

Visit an ENT surgeon in multispecialty hospital where you can visit both doctors and they can discuss among themselves and with you about your diagnosis.
