Trigeminal Neuralgia - Causes, Symptoms, Prevention and Treatment

What is Trigeminal Neuralgia ?:

What is Trigeminal Neuralgia ? Trigeminal Neuralgia, also known as Tic Douloureaux , is a nerve disorder that causes abrupt, searing, electric-shock-like facial pains, most commonly the pain involves the lower face and jaw, but symptoms may appear near the nose, ears, eyes or lips. Many experts say trigeminal neuralgia is the most unbearably painful human condition. Neuralgia is severe pain along the course of a nerve. The pain occurs because of a change in neurological structure or function due to irritation or damage of a nerve.

What Causes Trigeminal Neuralgia?:

What Causes Trigeminal Neuralgia? The human face has two trigeminal nerves, one on each side. Each nerve splits into three branches which transmit sensations of pain and touch from the face, mouth, and teeth to the brain.  Most cases of trigeminal neuralgia are believed to be caused by blood vessels pressing on the root of the trigeminal nerve. This is said to make the nerve transmit pain signals which are experienced as the stabbing pains of trigeminal neuralgia. 

Symptoms of Trigeminal Neuralgia:

Symptoms of Trigeminal Neuralgia The pain of TN can come in sharp spasms that feel like electric shocks. Pain generally occurs on one side of the face and may be brought on by sound or touch. Pain can be triggered by routine acts, including: Brushing your teeth Shaving Putting on makeup Touching your face Eating or drinking Speaking A breeze on your face

Slide 5:

How Trigeminal Neuralgia Is Diagnosed ? There’s no single test that your doctor can order to help them diagnose TN. Diagnosis will depend on the type and location of the pain and factors that trigger the pain. Your doctor will first evaluate your medical history and perform a physical exam. This will include a neurological exam to determine which part of the trigeminal nerve is being affected. They will touch various parts of your face to determine the location of the pain. Then they will order tests to rule out other conditions with similar symptoms, such as cluster headaches or postherpetic neuralgia, which is a painful condition that affects nerve fibers and skin. They may also order an MRI of your head, which can help determine whether multiple sclerosis is causing your pain.

How to Prevent the Spread of Trigeminal Neuralgia ?:

How to Prevent the Spread of Trigeminal Neuralgia ? Although there is no cure for trigeminal neuralgia , however, the following steps may help prevent attacks: Eat soft foods. Make sure your drinks and foods are not too cold or hot when you consume them. Wash you face with lukewarm water (body temperature). Use cotton pads when washing your face. Rinse your mouth with lukewarm water after eating if tooth brushing triggers an attack. Avoid known triggers as much as possible.

Slide 8:

What is the Treatment for Trigeminal N euralgia? You have various options to deal with this condition, including medication, Homeopathy and surgery. 1. Medication Medication can provide relief from pain and reduce the number of attacks. The first form of trigeminal neuralgia treatment is typically anti-seizure medications, which are drugs that block nerve firing. Some other second line or adjunctive medications include muscle relaxants and tricyclic antidepressants. Moreover, in the past few years there has been some ground breaking research in the field of homeopathic and Ayurvedic medicine and the patients have seen outstanding improvements in trigeminal neuralgia pain. Biogetica offers a natural treatment for Trigeminal Neuralgia. OM 13 Formula is a Bio-resonant combination of organic remedies, traditionally believed to work on the Nervous system by bringing about positive changes at the vibrational level.

2. Surgery While most cases of TN respond to medication, sometimes pain will stop responding to medication and severe symptoms can return. In those cases, surgery may be an option. In many cases surgery helps, but symptoms may return months or even years later. Surgical options for trigeminal neuralgia include Microvascular decompression (MVD) Percutaneous glycerol rhizotomy (PGR) PBCTN ( percutaneous balloon compression of the trigeminal nerve) PSRTR ( Percutaneous stereotactic radiofrequency thermal rhizotomy ) PSR (partial sensory rhizotomy ) GKR (gamma-knife radiosurgery )
