Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is characterized by repeated severe pains in parts of your face due to the affected branches of the trigeminal nerve. This conditions mostly affects people that are over 50 years of age. The pains are piercing and stabbing (almost like an electric shock), and are usually concentrated around the person’s cheek or jaw. The most interesting aspect of TN is that in-between the sudden and severe pains, there are no other symptoms.
