Hello,I am Dr. Aren,I have over 37 years of clinical experience,I will help with your query. Trigeminal Neuralgia is usally caused by pressure on the nerve by a blood vessel(usually superior cerebellar artery.This may also be seen in MS,nerve injury or tumours and is usually seen in males.This is characterised by sharp shooting pains on one side of the face,Conservative therapy with drugs is usually initiated with Carbamezapine/Tegretol.Other drugs used include PImozide,Phenytoin/Dilantin,Clonazepam and Amitryptiline.BaclofenLiioresal is often used as a second line drug.If drugs are not helpful,surgical therapy is available,this will include Microvascular decompression of the Trigeminal Nerve,Percutaneous Trigeminal Radiofrequency Rhizotomy,Glycerol injections and balloon compression massage. Sterotactic Surgery is another method of treating this problem.Usually most patients are relieved following drug therapy or following one of the surgical methods available.
