Trigeminal neuralgia

Trigeminal neuralgia

Trigeminal neuralgia is a sudden, sharp, electric current-like facial pain. It lasts from a few seconds to about 3 minutes. It usually affects part or all of one side of the face. Triggering factors include washing the face, eating, slight touch, wind or a cool breeze and movement of the head. Symptoms are sudden current-like pain and slight burning sensation. It is caused by compression or damage to the trigeminal nerve. Treatment is effected by avoiding triggers. Medicines e.g. carbamezipine and gabapentin may help with pain, and surgery in the most severe and persistent cases may be performed.
