20 Possible Causes for Jaw Pain, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Ulnar Nerve Entrapment

  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

    Entrapment of the ulnar nerve at the elbow is cubital tunnel syndrome.[nervemed.com] As with all exercise programs, if any of these movements cause pain, stop immediately.[orthoinfo.aaos.org] Thoracic outlet syndrome is a well-described disorder caused by thoracic outlet compression of the brachial plexus and/or the subclavian vessels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neuropathy

    Essentially any peripheral nerve can become entrapped and cause the signs and symptoms of neuropathy. The ulnar nerve is commonly entrapped at the elbow.[medicinenet.com] […] of touch sensation clumsiness trouble using hands to pick up objects or fasten clothing Other possible symptoms are: balance problems and difficulty walking hearing loss jaw[breastcancer.org] Thoracic outlet syndrome Caused by compression of nerves of the brachial plexus - eg, presence of a fibrous band or cervical rib.[patient.info]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Essentially any peripheral nerve can become entrapped and cause the signs and symptoms of neuropathy. The ulnar nerve is commonly entrapped at the elbow.[medicinenet.com] […] of touch sensation clumsiness trouble using hands to pick up objects or fasten clothing Other possible symptoms are: balance problems and difficulty walking hearing loss jaw[breastcancer.org] Others, like Guillain-Barre syndrome, happen after a virus infection. Still others are from nerve compression, like carpal tunnel syndrome or thoracic outlet syndrome.[wexnermedical.osu.edu]

  • Joint Dislocation

    The close proximity of the ulnar nerve to the medial epicondyle allows for the increased likelihood of entrapment when a dislocation occurs.[emedicine.medscape.com] You can dislocate your ankles, knees, shoulders , hips, elbows and jaw. You can also dislocate your finger and toe joints.[medlineplus.gov] There were preoperative symptoms consistent with mediastinal compression in 50% and one delayed presentation with thoracic outlet syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cervical Herniated Disc

    See Anatomy Of Nerve Pain An EMG can also help rule out other nerve entrapment syndromes that can give one arm pain, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, brachial plexitis, ulnar[spine-health.com] Patients with a herniated disc in the cervical spine (neck) may experience chronic neck pain and radiating pain in the arm, neck, jaw and/or head.[laserspineinstitute.com] Herniated discs in the neck is often related to a condition called Thoracic Outlet Syndrome .[ssrehab.com]

  • Radiculopathy

    To differentiate from CTS and ulnar nerve entrapment you can later assess the elbow and hand and perform peripheral neuropathy special tests such as the Tinel’s test at the[raynersmale.com] C2: extremely rare-jaw pain and occipital headaches, but no motor deficit is seen.[eorif.com] Cervical spine injury, stinger/burner, peripheral nerve injury, spinal cord injury, thoracic outlet syndrome, brachial plexus radiculopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Coccyx Disorder

    Nerve entrapment The ulnar nerve is the “funny bone” nerve that travels in a groove between tip of the elbow (olecranon) and the boney prominence on the inside of the elbow[nesintherapy.com] Commonly a cause of most joint pain, they are known to cause headaches, neck and jaw pain, low back pain, tennis elbow, and carpal tunnel syndrome.[northernpts.com] Source: www.mayoclinic.com Thoracic Outlet syndrome Thoracic Outlet syndrome may occur when the blood vessels or nerves that travel from the neck down to the arm become compressed[integratedpt.com]

  • Paresthesia

    Other relatively common peripheral syndromes include ulnar nerve entrapment, tarsal nerve entrapment and lateral femoral cutaneous nerve entrapment 6,7 ( Table 2).[chiro.org] We report a case of a 50-year-old patient with bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaws (BRONJs) whose symptoms included severe pain and hemimandibular paraesthesia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Others, like Guillain-Barre syndrome, happen after a virus infection. Still others are from nerve compression, like carpal tunnel syndrome or thoracic outlet syndrome.[icdlist.com]

  • Tennis Elbow

  • Hyperesthetic Thalamic Pain Syndrome

    Entrapment of the ulnar nerve in a fibro-osseous tunnel formed by the trochlear groove between the olecranon process and the medial epicondyle of the humerus.[brainscape.com] Update: I am still dealing with significant TMJ jaw pain, though this has recently been linked (by my neurologist) as also having atypical trigeminal nerve involvement/pain[givenmeathorn.blogspot.com] outlet syndrome Median Posterior tibial (Tarsal tunnel syndrome) Radiculopathies: Upper & Lower Extremities Burning mouth syndrome Diabetic Amyotrophy Reflex Sympathetic[neuromuscular.wustl.edu]
