Homeopathy Treatment for Trigeminal Neuralgia

Homeopathic Treatment for Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal Neuralgia is a chronic, painful condition that affects the Trigeminal nerve. It is a nerve disorder. The Trigeminal nerve is a 5th head nerve supplying to the face and has three divisions; the ophthalmic branch, the maxillary branch, and the mandibular branch. One or more of the three branches of the nerve may be affected. The damage to the nerve may give rise to intense excruciating, burning, stabbing pain. The pain usually occurs on one side of the face. One of the causes of this may be a blood vessel causing pressure on the root of the Trigeminal nerve.
