Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal Neuralgia

At least once a month we will meet a patient who has been incorrectly diagnosed with “TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA”.

Thankfully, true trigeminal neuralgia is relatively rare.

Facial pain problems are much more common and a readily treatable by conservative, non-surgical methods. True trigeminal neuralgia has the following characteristics:

  • Intense, sharp, electric type pain
  • Pain episodes last only a minute or two
  • When not having an episode, there is no pain

A "trigger zone" is known to the patient-usually around the nose or mouth. IF YOUR “TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA” DOES NOT INCLUDE ALL OF THE ABOVE SYMPTOMS, FURTHER DIAGNOSIS MAY BE REQUIRED.
