Trigeminal Neuralgia

Tic douloureux
 
Trigeminal neuralgia is a nerve disorder that causes a stabbing or electric-shock-like pain in parts of the face.
Symptoms

Very painful, sharp electric-like spasms that usually last a few seconds or minutes, but can become constant

Pain is usually only on one side of the face, often around the eye, cheek, and lower part of the face

Pain may be triggered by touch or sounds

Painful attacks of trigeminal neuralgia can be triggered by common, everyday activities, such as:

Brushing teeth

Chewing

Drinking

Eating

Lightly touching the face

Shaving

Signs and tests

A brain and nervous system (neurologic) examination is usually normal.

Tests that are done to look for the cause of the problem include:

Blood tests

MRI of the head

Trigeminal reflex testing

Causes

The pain of trigeminal neuralgia comes from the trigeminal nerve. This nerve carries the feelings of touch and pain from the face, eyes, sinuses, and mouth to the brain.

The condition usually affects adults, but it may affect anyone at any age. Trigeminal neuralgia may be part of the normal aging process.

Trigeminal neuralgia may be caused by:

Multiple sclerosis

Pressure on the trigeminal nerve from a swollen blood vessel or tumor

Possible effect from Lyme Disease

Possible effect from Shingles

Often, no cause is found.

Doctors are more likely to find a cause in a person who is younger than age 40.

Traditional Medical Treatment Options and Diagnosis

Your primary care physician, a neurologist, or a pain specialist may also be involved in your care.

Certain medicines sometimes help reduce pain and the rate of attacks. These medicines include:

Anti-seizure drugs (carbamazepine, gabapentin, lamotrigine, phenytoin, valproate, and pregabalin)

Muscle relaxants (baclofen, clonazepam)

Tricyclic antidepressants (amitriptyline, nortriptyline, or carbamazepine)

Some patients may need surgery to relieve pressure on the nerve. Techniques include:

Cutting or destroying part of the trigeminal nerve

Destroying the trigeminal nerve with a needle or probe placed through the skin using radiofrequency ablation or an injection of glycerol

Electrostimulation

Percutaneous balloon microcompression

Removal of the tumor (when a tumor is the cause)

Stereotactic radiosurgery (Gamma knife)

Surgery to remove a blood vessel that is putting pressure on the trigeminal nerve (called microvascular decompression, or MVD)

Medicines Two Choices for You

Dr. Huntoon's Alternative Medical Treatment Options

Working with your Holistic Chiropractor who can help you address the nerve pain by removing the pressure from the nerve is warranted.  Developing a well-rounded, multifaceted approach to dealing with all the underlying causes of your Trigeminal Neuralgia is prudent.  Understanding what is involved in the form of time and commitment for treatment and the expectations is important. 

Dr. Huntoon has personal experience in dealing with this all too painful condition.  In 2001, Dr. Huntoon awoke with right sided facial paralysis, no hearing in his right ear and the beginnings of a painful rash only on the right side of his face.  He went to a Neurologist and was told it was sue to the shingles virus.  He promptly went back to his office, treated the varicella zoster virus, treated it specifically for the trigeminal nerve, took large dosages of EPA-DHA 720 Fish Oil and within 2 weeks, he was fully resolved of the Trigeminal Neuralgia and the Shingles.
