Trigeminal neuralgia affects the trigeminal nerve, one of the largest nerves in the head. The trigeminal nerve sends impulses of touch, pain, pressure, and temperature to the brain from the face, jaw, gums, forehead, and around the eyes.
Symptoms of trigeminal neuralgia include the following:
- severe pain on the face and around the lips, eyes, nose, scalp, and forehead
- electric shock-like pain on the face and around the lips, eyes, nose, scalp, and forehead
- stabbing pain on the face and around the lips, eyes, nose, scalp, and forehead
Symptoms can be brought on when a person is brushing the teeth, putting on makeup, touching the face, swallowing, or even feeling a slight breeze. Vaccines are linked to trigeminal neuralgia
