Trigeminal neuralgia is a neurological condition characterized by severe, sudden, and stabbing facial pain, typically affecting one side of the face. This pain is often described as excruciating, electric shock-like, or shooting, and it can be triggered by even mild stimuli such as touching the face, chewing, speaking, or exposure to cold air. Trigeminal neuralgia primarily affects the trigeminal nerve, which is one of the largest cranial nerves and is responsible for transmitting sensory information from the face to the brain.

  1. Episodic facial pain:
  2. Location of pain:
