Responses: There can be many causes of facial pain but trigeminal neuralgia involves sudden multiple severe immobilizing attacks of a few seconds over the same facial area. Other causes to be considered include jaw, dentition, sinuses. Perhaps a dentist needs to be seen. Would a Concierge visit help?
