My name is Hemant Kansara. I am 57 year old husband and father of a son. I started to experience left-sided electric shock-like facial pain on approximately 28-07-2012. The pain was primarily located in the left cheek and left jaw region and is aggravated by chewing, laughing, and other facial muscle movements.
I proceeded for a neurological evaluation and was diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia. This condition may arise when a blood vessel causes pressure on the Trigeminal nerve, the nerve that controls sensation in the face. I started on several different medications for pain management but the relief was temporary.
It is a wonderful treatment & a fruitful outcome. Doctors like you replace the fear of illness with trust in recovery. Thank you once again.
