Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal Neuralgia: Causes and Symptoms

Do you often experience sharp pain (like an electric shock) in your jaw, gums or teeth? The painful attack is usually unpredictable, unannounced, and can last for up to 3 minutes at a time, and is generally felt on one side of your face. Well… in case you are a victim of such painful attacks, and if it happens frequently, it may be that you suffer from trigeminal neuralgia.

The condition is not fatal, although it can make your life extremely difficult, and can lead to isolation, weight loss and even depression.

What Causes Trigeminal Neuralgia?

The condition arises from a compression of the trigeminal nerve that links your brain to your face and mouth. All the sensation felt on your face, teeth and mouth are transmitted to your brain through this vital nerve, and the compression is usually attributed to pressure from a nearby blood vessel affecting the nerve. The compression could also be a result of a tumor or even multiple sclerosis.

Since the nerve is compressed, any additional pressure on it tends to accelerate the pain. In fact, the painful attacks are induced by activities involving touching your face (even lightly); for instance:

  • Brushing your teeth
  • Eating
  • Washing your face
  • Vigorously moving your head or face
