Hot pepper chill out: Trigeminal nerve pain? Capsacain puts the hot in chili peppers and raises our pain threshold so things don't hurt as much. Some folks have reported relief. Worth a try. More common treatments are pills and procedures. Acupuncture may help. Talk with your doc for strategies that will work best for you. Hope you're feeling better.
