Speak Up About Facial Pain!

The Miami Neuroscience Center at Larkin is working to raise awareness of Trigeminal Neuralgia, a condition characterized by sudden, severe, brief, stabbing recurrent episodes of facial pain in one or more branches of the trigeminal nerve.  It is usually caused when the trigeminal nerve is being compressed by an artery or a vein, but can also be present with no apparent cause.  It is sometimes misdiagnosed as a dental or psychological problem.
