For as long as I can remember, I have had periodic attacks of severe pain below the ear near the Eustachian Tube area. It is a stabbing burning sensation. It comes and goes sporadically and it seems like it happens whether I'm doing something or not. The last time I had it was about a year ago while driving. It hurt so bad I had a small wreck. It didn't happen again until today. The pain seems to calm down when I apply pressure to that area. Sometimes it is a constant pain while other times it is like a pulsing pain. Every time, it feels like a stabbing burning pain though. The closest thing I found to it is Trigeminal Neuralgia. The information seems to fit me. But does anyone else have any idea what it might be? Is it the trigeminal neuralgia or something else? Thanks.
