Hello,

Trigeminal neuralgia is a difficult condition to cure.

You can take drugs like gabapentin for symptomatic relief.

If symptoms persist you can consult a neurologist and plan for nerve block.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shinas Hussain,
