She can also have micro vascular loop around trigeminal if there is no evidence of demyelination or weakness and if there is a loop they may benefit with microvascular decompression

MS and trigeminal neuralgia commonly coexist. its mostly managed by medical treatment and if that fails then we need pain procedures
