What Is Neuralgia?

July 17, 2016

 Neuralgia is a stabbing, burning, and often quite severe pain that occurs along a damaged nerve. The damaged nerve may be anywhere in the body, but is most common in the face and neck. The cause of a damaged nerve may be a disease like diabetes or multiple sclerosis, an infection like shingles, or 

the result of old age. 

 

Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic pain condition that affects the trigeminal nerve, which carries sensation from your face to your brain. If you have trigeminal neuralgia, even mild stimulation of your face — such as from brushing your teeth or putting on makeup — may trigger a jolt of excruciating pain.

 

The good news is that it is treatable. Due to the variety of treatment options available, having neuralgia doesn't necessarily mean you're doomed to a life of pain. Neurologist usually can effectively manage neuralgia with medications or injections.
