How can I confirm if I have Trigeminal Neuralgia?

You would sense you’re in some kind of serious trouble if you’ve been gripped by this debilitating pain that radiates from your face towards your brain hijacking your jaws, cheeks, nose, eye, forehead, etc. Yes, there is no pain more gruesome than the one experienced during a Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) attack and no words can do justice to the agony and torment, the patient endures.

So, if you’ve experienced this pounding pain that feels like its burning, stabbing,  extreme, sporadic, or shock-like, lasting anywhere from a few seconds to as long as two minutes per episode or the pain occurs in interludes with an ebb and  flow pattern, it could be a typical or a classic form of Trigeminal neuralgia also called Type-1 or TN-1. In TN-2, better known as atypical or Type 2, the pain is characterized by a constant dull, aching, throbbing, pulsating sensation of somewhat lower intensity than Type 1. People suffering from other conditions such as multiple sclerosis- a disease affecting nerves in the brain and spinal cord have the myelin sheath that protects the nerves eroded, which could lead to the third type- Symptomatic trigeminal neuralgia (STN). In any case, described above, you should confirm the symptoms with a healthcare specialist in order to understand your options in treating this condition. To chat with one right now, click here.


What is Trigeminal Neuralgia?

The trigeminal nerve is your 5th cranial nerve and the largest nerve in your skull. The nerve is a pair; present on both sides of your face and further splits as it leaves the brain stem into 3 branches:

  1. The ophthalmic or upper branch supplies sensation to most of the scalp, forehead, and front of the head
  2. The maxillary or middle branch serves sensation messages to the cheek, upper jaw, top lip, teeth and gums, and to the side of the nose
  3. The mandibular or lower branch caters signals to the lower jaw, teeth and gums, and bottom lip

TN can affect one or more of these nerves. It normally clinches the right side of the face, although both sides of the face may be affected. Although, no other facial pain can beat the torment of a TN pain, a lot of other conditions may mimic trigeminal neuralgia and should be ruled out to make a correct diagnosis.

You should check for:

  • Dental infection or oral surgery
  • Migraine or cluster headaches
  • Post-herpetic neuralgia
  • Joint pain in the lower jaw
  • Temporal arteritis that causes the temple blood vessels to become inflamed, which can lead to blindness or stroke
  • Facial injury or trauma to a nerve in the face
  • Sinus cavity complications

Because trigeminal neuralgia is rare in people under 40, it is important to eliminate any other causative factor because finding the real cause of the pain is important as the treatments for different types of pain may differ.

Causes of Trigeminal Neuralgia

In trigeminal neuralgia, the nerves get high strung and their functions are disrupted. In most cases, the problem arises because there has been a contact between a normal blood vessel (an artery or a vein) and the trigeminal nerve, which causes it to misfire. Trigeminal neuralgia is normally seen in people after 50 years of age with women being more vulnerable to it than men. Some experts state that TN predisposition may run in the family. An eroded myelin sheath can also set off a TN attack because the protective covering around the nerve has been damaged. Rarely, trigeminal neuralgia can be caused by a tumor compressing the trigeminal nerve.

A variety of triggers may set off the pain of trigeminal neuralgia including:

  • Washing your face
  • Touching your face
  • Eating
  • Drinking
  • Brushing your teeth
  • Shaving
  • Talking
  • Putting on makeup
  • Wind blowing across your face
  • Smiling

Treatment of Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic nerve disorder that causes immense discomfort and excruciating pain. Conventional medicines can provide temporary relief from the pain and your doctor could put you on anticonvulsant,  antispasmodic, or antidepressant drugs.

An anticonvulsant works by weakening electrical impulses in the nerve, reducing its ability to transmit pain. Carbamazepine and gabapentin are the most popular anticonvulsants prescribed in this condition, however, their effects wane over time and cause several side effects in the long run.

Antispasmodic drugs work by relaxing the muscles and appear to relieve the spasm and distention that causes pain. Antidepressants are also prescribed in this condition because they alter the chemical action in your brain that leads to sensing pain.

Your doctor may also suggest a nerve block in which an injection is given that will stop your nerve from hurting for some time.  However, as mentioned earlier, these are just stopgap treatments that offer transient relief and do nothing to address the root cause of the problem.

Surgery is offered as a last resort if medicines cease to help. In surgical procedures, the affected nerve is either blocked or damaged so that it can no longer transmit any pain. However, surgery is always risky and can lead to complications such as numbness and sometimes pain may return after surgery and can even get worse.

Are there any other ways to manage Trigeminal neuralgia?
