A number of months ago I was diagnosed with a mild form of trigeminal neuralgia . I suffer from pain in the right hand side of my face which feels like an electric shock. It is triggered when I brush my teeth, drink cold fluids, blow my nose and my face can be very sensitive to touch. The pain only lasts a few seconds but happens many times a day and is really quite uncomfortable when it happens. Having spoken to several people with trigeminal neuralgia I am beginning to wonder if I have postherpatic neuralgia caused by Herpes simplex as I have never had shingles. Does anyone have a view on this please or has experience of postherpatic neuralgia caused by Herpes simplex?
