Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal Neuralgia

Historically Trigeminal Neuralgia has been called "SUICIDE DISEASE" as due to lack of treatment sufferers would often think of committing suicide. Trigeminal neuralgia was first described by physician John Fothergill and hence also known a Fothergill's Disease.
Neuralgia is pain arising from an irritated or damaged nerve and is felt in the part of the body served by the nerve not necessarily at the site of the problem. The pressure on the nerve could be due to injury to bone or connective tissue or to a blood vessel supplying the nerve.

Trigeminal Neuralgia is a severe sudden pain in the face (mostly one-sided) which the patient describes as sharp shooting or like an electric shock. Trigeminal Neuralgia is one of the most tormenting conditions seen in medical practice.
