Causes of TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA

Though the exact cause of trigeminal neuralgia is idiopathic or unknown, according to some research it is caused due to traumatic damage to the nerves which pass from the skull and discourse through the tissues and muscles of the face. The damage to these nerves results in compression of the nerves which leads to the symptoms.

Signs of TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA

Trigeminal neuralgia or tic douloureux is a most common form of neuralgia that occurs due to the inflammation or compression of trigeminal nerve by an artery or a vein that frequently causes severe facial pain. It mostly affects the elderly people and generally affects right side of the face. The facial pain may occur after every few hours, minutes and seconds.
(Trigeminal nerve is the fifth and largest cranial nerve that is responsible forfacial sensation and transmit the sensation from the brain to mouth, teeth, face and nose.)
