About Facial Pain

When you have facial pain, simply smiling, talking, or eating can be difficult. Many different conditions can cause facial pain, from temporomandibular joint disorder to complex nerve disorders. Nerve pain, atypical facial pain, or trigeminal neuralgia occurs when a blood vessel at the base of the skull exerts pressure directly on the nerve caused by either trauma to the nerve, multiple sclerosis, or a tumor compressing the nerve.

The type of pain also varies in each person. Some may have acute, severe pain, and others may experience chronic or constant pain but with less intensity. Facial pain is often described as shooting, stabbing, or electrical shock-like pain. Still, others may have constant aching or burning sensations in the cheek, lips, mouth, eyes, or forehead.

Examples include:

  • Tic Douleroux
  • Trigeminal Neuralgia
  • Rosacea
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
  • TMJ
  • Tinnitus
