Can you tell me about nerve condition trigamitolmyalgia?

Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal_neuralgia
I think you meant Trigeminal Neuralgia. If so, trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic pain condition that affects the trigeminal nerve, which carries sensation from your face to your brain. If you have trigeminal neuralgia, even mild stimulation of your face such as from brushing your teeth or putting on makeup may trigger a jolt of excruciating pain.

Is floppiness after legs falling asleep a sign of a nerve condition?

Legs/arms falling

Leg
asleep are from pressure on nerves or decreased blood flow, in that order. Numbness and tingling from nerve pressure is common during sleep when we don't move much. The numbness etc is temporary malfunction of the sensory part of the nerve. Temporary floppieness is a malfunction of the signals sent from the spine to the muscles. As long as its temporary, it's normal.
