Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a chronic condition that affects trigeminal nerve that carries sensation from face to the brain. It causes instaneous and acute pain in whole or part of face. The pain due to Trigeminal Neuralgia Singapore is so severe that even mild stimulation of face like applying make-up or brushing your teeth may trigger excruciating pain. It often begins with short and mild episodes of pain but gradually progresses and causes more frequent bouts of blistering pain.
Trigeminal neuralgia Singapore includes administration of oral anti-convulsant medication singly or in combination with muscle relaxants for pain relief. However, if adequate response is not achieved, our neurosurgeons at pain management clinic, using most modern techniques, perform need based surgeries.
