Trigeminal Nerve Injuries

To confirm the diagnosis of trigeminal neuralgia and exclude other treatable causes of face pain, you will undergo a neurologic evaluation, an MRI of the head, or both. Your doctor will also evaluate the severity of your pain, your general medical condition, and your treatment goals versus risk aversion.
