Our expert says:
Ann, trigeminal neuralgia basically means that pain due to a problem with the trigeminal nerve. This may be due to infections (past and present), pressure on the nerve, damage of the nerve, inflammation, etc. The best would be for him to see a neurologist and hopefully have it sorted out.
PS. Trigeminal neuralgia is a difficult thing to treat and Tegretol® is the treatment of choice. Good luck.
