MRI brain covers jaw under ear and neck?
Have lower jaw pain under ear and Neck for 8 months now. I have been to dentists, endodontist, oral surgeon, ENT, neurologist GP for my jaw and neck pain. It's constant sore,burning pain in jaw under ear and neck for 8 months now. I have small lump like spots in jaw under ear and neck which hurts to touch. I have mild swelling spots in under ear jaw and neck which is tender and sore. Neuro want me to take MRI brain with contrast to see if nerves are ok. he said,no need of mri neck. Whether mri brain covers the jaw under ear and side of neck area? Neuro put me on carbamazepine once a day to see if it helps. Taken 3 weeks. No changes.   I went to my GP.  My GP wanted me to take CT neck soft tissue scan with contrast instead of MRI. So don't know which one to do. dentist suspect tooth fracture in #46 and said to extract it.no definite diagnosis. does CT scan on neck soft tissue shows same as MRI brain? Is my GP right? she said not to do mri and to do CT. Should I ask mri neck too?
