Severe, recurring facial pain is the main symptom of trigeminal neuralgia. This pain may include sensations of stabbing or electrical shock in the cheek or jaw. Some people mistake the pain as the result of a dental condition and have teeth removed to try to find relief. There are a variety of triggers that may set off the pain. Join Dr. Kamal Kalia, neurosurgeon, Baystate neurosurgery, Assistant Professor of Surgery, UMass Chan Medical School-Baystate, for a discussion about trigeminal neuralgia, how it is diagnosed, the symptoms, and
the treatments to bring relief.
