Our expert says:
Facial pain can be caused the structures of the face, skull and brain. There are several causes that will have to be investigated and I suggest that you consult a neurologist to exclude neurological causes, like epilepsy (characterised by facial pain with or without seizures), trigeminal neuralgia etc.
If the neurologist is unable to pin point a cause, you can consult a facial macillar surgeon to rule a structural cause, like like temporomandibular joint syndrome.
