What is Trigeminal Neuralgia?

 

 

These periods of pain, lasting from a few seconds to hours, can be triggered through stress, gently breezes, cold food, smiling, or for no reason at all. This disease can be caused by a blood vessel compressing on the root of the trigeminal nerve.
Trigeminal neuralgia (TN), also known as Tic Douloureux, Prospalgia, the Fothergill's Disease, or the Suicide Disease, is a neuropathic disorder of the trigeminal nerve that causes extreme pain nearly anywhere on the face.

The sensations occur at three major branches of the cranial nerve: the ophthalmic nerve, maxillary nerve, and the mandibular nerve.
