Trigeminal Neuralgia Treatment in Dallas-Fort Worth
Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic pain condition affecting the trigeminal nerve that carries sensation from your face to your brain.
Patients with trigeminal neuralgia may experience an accidental jolt of intense pain while doing basic every-day activities like brushing your teeth or putting on makeup. The pain can range from from short bouts of pain into longer, more frequent episodes.
Having trigeminal neuralgia doesn’t have to be permanent. There are medicines that can help to control symptoms. Other treatment options include injections or minimally invasive surgery.
