Trigeminal Neuraglia Pain & Treatment
Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a chronic pain condition that affects the 5th (trigeminal) cranial nerve. This is one of the head's largest nerves. TN causes sudden, extreme, and sporadic shock-like face pain that can last between a few seconds and two minutes. These episodes can happen in rapid succession and the differing intensity can be physically and mentally incapacitating. TN may run in families and is more commonly found in women and in people over 50 years old.
Causes of TN:
- Blood vessel pressing on the trigeminal nerve as it exits the brainstem
- The normal aging process
- Multiple sclerosis patients (higher risk)
Treatment options can include medicines, surgery, and combination therapy treatments. Most commonly, medicinal treatments are used, those being anticonvulsant medicines. Several different drugs are recommended on a patient-to-patient basis. Also, anticonvulsants paired with some other drugs in combination can be used. If medication does not relieve the pain, then patients could need surgery. Some surgical procedures are outpatient based and others may involve a more complex operation under general anesthesia.
The MiRx Protocol uses a FDA cleared technology to deliver local anasthetic medication to the Sphenopalatine Ganglion nerve cluster (SPG). Our success is in the ability to effectively target the specific cause of head pain from TN. More often than not, other treatment plans are npt targetted enough. MiRx Protocol can also provide long-term relief. Contact a MiRx doctor in your area to see if you qualify for this effective headache treatment.
