The issues is that the pain occurs at random and is unpredictable. The pain is often described as lancinating but can be severe and associated great emotional distress. There have been suicides related to it. Often the cause is a blood vessel causing compression of the nerve and a simple decompression procedure may help improve the pain.

In brief: Nerve action

If you mean trigeminal neuralgia, it is likely due to direct spontaneous firing of the nerve being relayed to the brain pain perception areas.
