There are a number of vascular compression syndromes including Glossopharyngeal, Occipital and Trigeminal. Most of which result in pain in one form or another. Patients sometimes experience years of ineffective treatment in the mistaken belief or diagnosis that the pain is caused by some form of dental problem.
