About Trigeminal Neuralgia

TN affects either the left or the right side of the face (ipsilateral), but not usually both sides. Nor does TN cause neck pain. This severe face pain can be spontaneous and often is described as:

  • shooting, stabbing or burning pain
  • electric-shock like pain
  • brief, acute and excruciating pain

These episodes can last seconds or minutes. The pain occurs at irregular intervals, although routine activities can trigger an episode:

  • light touching of the skin such as being kissed or
  • applying make-up
  • teeth brushing
  • drinking beverages
  • shaving or washing your face
  • talking or smiling
