Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal Neuralgia

 

Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN), also called “tic doloreaux,” is one of the most intense pain syndromes, typically diagnosed in adults after age 50. It may be caused by compressive blood vessels, tumors and vascular malformations, which result in an electric shock-like pain in the areas of the face where the branches of the nerve are distributed – lips, eyes, nose, scalp, forehead, upper jaw, and lower jaw. The episodes last only a few seconds, but the pain experienced can be excruciating. The disorder most often affects only one side of the face, but some patients experience pain on both sides at different times. (add benefit of injections)
