ATYPICAL TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA

In contrast to the typical type, atypical trigeminal neuralgia seems to cause pain constantly with the intensity increasing and decreasing.

There are trigger zones with this type; however, there also is an area of dull aching which is intensified by touching the trigger zones. All three divisions of the trigeminal nerve seems to be affected equally.

A common cause of this disorder is trauma, especially after a surgical incision or blow to the face.
