is a neuropathic disorder characterized by episodes of intense pain in the face. It has been described as among the most painful conditions known. The pain originates from a variety of different locations on the face and may be felt in front of the ear, eye, lips, nose, scalp, forehead, cheeks, mouth, or jaw and side of the face.
Attacks of trigeminal neuralgia can be triggered by certain actions or movements, such as:
• brushing your teeth
• washing your face
• a light touch
• shaving or putting on make-up
• a cool breeze or air conditioning
• head movements
• vibrations, such as walking or a car journey
However, pain can occur spontaneously with no triggers whatsoever.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of your head.
