Well, the reason why I am asking you, is because you need to be considered for trigeminal neuralgia
Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) or tic doloureux (also known as proeopalgia) is a nerve disorder of the trigeminal nerve
which results in episodes of intense pain in the eyes, lips, nose, scalp, forehead, and jaw. TN is usually seen in middle age, specifically after 50, but can be seen in any age. More women are affected than men. It is often underdiagnosed as many physicians are not familiar iwth this disorder
The condition can bring about stabbing, mind-numbing, electric shock-like pain from just a finger's glance of the cheek.
TN, is hard to treat, but you do have several treatment options. You may require a combination of anti-seizure medications, anti-depressants, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, steroids, nerve blocks
, botox and/or opiates. Chronic pain
is notoriously hard to deal with and it may require some trial and error before an optimal plan is in place. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trigeminal_neuralgia
Usually this is on one side of the face, but can occur on both. You need to see a neurologist for this diagnosis.
