Rise Above Pain

Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal Neuralgia is a condition that causes intense, electric shock-like sensations on one side of the face. It is caused by inflammation of the trigeminal nerve, which is a nerve that carries sensation from your face to the brain. During the initial stage of the condition, individuals usually experience mild and short attacks. However, trigeminal neuralgia can escalate and lead to more frequent and more prolonged bouts of acute pain. The condition typically affects women more than men and older adults more than younger individuals.

At Monarch Pain Management, our goal is to develop the most effective and personalized pain management plan to alleviate the symptoms associated with this condition. 


Trigeminal Neuralgia

Symptoms of Trigeminal Neuralgia

  • Sudden, intense pain on one side of the face that feels like an electric shock
  • Pain triggered by touching the face, speaking, brushing teeth, or chewing. 
  • Facial spasms
  • Pain in the teeth, jaw, cheek, lips, gums, and sometimes eye and forehead. 
  • Attacks that may come and go for weeks, days, months, or even longer
  • Pain attacks that hit only one side of the face that become frequent and more intense over time

Many of these symptoms can be indicative of other conditions so it is always best to consult a medical professional if you suspect you have Trigeminal Neuralgia.
