Brain: Neuralgias

There are a number of vascular compression syndromes including Glossopharyngeal, Occipital and Trigeminal. Most of which result in pain in one form or another. Patients sometimes experience years of ineffective treatment in the mistaken belief or diagnosis that the pain is caused by some form of dental problem.

The pain episodes may last for several seconds, and sometimes repeat one after another. The disorder usually affects one side of the face. Women seem more likely to be affected than men, and the vast majority of cases affect patients over the age of 50.

Proper diagnosis of facial pain is critical, and this can often only be accomplished a neurosurgeon. Where the pain is related to a vascular compression syndrome, your treatment will normally be delivered by a neurosurgeon. You can learn more here:
