Neuralgia refers to intense, usually intermittent, pain along a nerve. There are many forms of the disorder, including facial neuralgia.
Facial neuralgia, also known as trigeminal neuralgia, is a painful disorder that affects the trigeminal nerve which is responsible for carrying sensation from the face to the brain. In most cases, the pain is caused by a blood vessel pressing on the nerve. Less commonly, the pain may be the result of nerve damage (multiple sclerosis, tumour, aneurysm).
