Neuralgia — paroxysmal or burning, aching, dull pain along the nerve. The causes of neuralgia can be diseases of the nerve itself, the nerve plexuses of the spine, or pathological processes that develop in the tissues and organs near the nerve.
The most common neuralgia of the trigeminal nerve, occipital, intercostal.
Symptoms of neuralgia: With trigeminal neuralgia, pain spreads along the branches.
The trigeminal nerve has three branches: the first leads to the skin of the forehead, the second to the cheek, nasal mucosa and teeth of the upper jaw, and the third to the lower jaw and teeth of the lower jaw.
With neuralgia of the occipital nerve, pain goes from the neck to the back of the head.
With intercostal neuralgia, shooting and burning pains occur along the intercostal spaces.
