Trigeminal neuralgia: Are you talking about trigeminal neuralgia? If so, this is where a specific nerve is irritated for any number of reasons, and is not necessarily related to any genetic factors. It can occur from a number of pathologies, most notable minor trauma. If this is not what you are referring to, I do apologize.
