Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal Neuralgia affects the Trigeminal nerve, which carries electrical signals from the face to the brain. This means that Trigeminal Neuralgia can cause the gentlest of stimulations of the face extremely painful, such as yawning.

Symptoms include:

  • Pain that is generally concentrated in the jaw, cheeks, teeth, gums, lips and chin
  • Intermittent feelings of mild pain, interspersed with episodes of severe pain that feels like an electric shock
  • Episodes of pain lasting from anywhere between a few seconds to several months with similar periods of no pain at all
  • Episodes of pain triggered from stimulation of the face, such as through chewing
  • Episodes of pain become more frequent, longer and intense as time goes on

The condition is typically caused by pressure on the Trigeminal nerve because of contact between an artery or a vein and the nerve at the base of your brain, causing its functionality to be compromised.

Although Trigeminal Neuralgia may arise through no fault of another party, it may develop when a person suffers physical trauma due to another party’s negligence, subsequent to which they develop Trigeminal Neuralgia.

If the condition is not an immediate result of the fault of another, it may still be attributed to that fault if the development of the disorder can be traced directly back to the negligence and the effects of it.
