"Trigeminal neuralgia is one of the most painful conditions that affect mankind"
It is the chronic pain that occurs due to affection of the nerve that carries sensation from the face to brain that is the TRIGEMINAL NERVE.
The sensitivity of the face increases so much that even brushing teeth or applying makeup on the face gives rise to an excruciating pain.
It is more common in women and above 50 years of age. Initially the pain is mild but gradually it worsens to a very bad state with sudden electric shock like pains in face eyes and boring ears.
