Trigeminal neuralgia is a painful condition will cause difficulty in washing the face, brushing and chewing etc.. It has multiple treatment options like medical, local injections and surgical methods.. If you are comfortable with medications you can try that.. Next options is an injection will give you pain relief and reduces the need for medications Last option is surgical decompression from the compressing blood vessel.. If you are not getting relief by medications you can try percutaneous glycerol injection.. Regards
