Neuralgia Treatment at Physioheal Physiotherapy, Gurgaon

Neuralgia, characterized by nerve pain, is a condition where pain follows the path of a nerve. This discomfort can affect individuals of any age, although it’s more common in the elderly and is twice as prevalent in women compared to men. Various factors such as infections, specific medications, diabetes, and pressure on nerves caused by factors like tumors, trauma, or surgery can trigger neuralgia.

Types of Neuralgia

  1. Trigeminal Neuralgia: This type leads to short, intense pain episodes in the face and neck. It typically affects one side of the face, described as stabbing or burning sensations.
  2. Atypical Trigeminal Neuralgia: This persistent pain type is characterized by a constant ache.
  3. Postherpetic Neuralgia: Caused by shingles or herpes, this type of neuralgia follows an outbreak of these infections.

Symptoms of Neuralgia: Recognizing the Signs

Commonly, neuralgia symptoms are mistaken for migraines or dental issues due to fluctuating facial pain. The most prevalent forms are postherpetic neuralgia and trigeminal neuralgia. Symptoms include:

  • Pain: Ranging from mild aches to crushing sensations with a heavy, burning feeling, often located around the forehead, temples, ears, jaw, eyes, teeth, and neck. Pain worsens with facial expressions, chewing, or talking.
  • Sensory Changes: Increased sensitivity can manifest as tenderness, tingling, or painful responses to pressure, temperature, or vibration. Numbness along the nerve path can also be reported.
  • Muscle Effects: Muscles supplied by affected nerves may spasm, feel weak, or become paralyzed. This limits daily activities and mobility.

Causes of Neuralgia: Unraveling the Triggers

Neuralgia results from pressure or inflammation affecting nerves. Disruptions can stem from various sources, including:

  • Chemical irritation
  • Diabetes
  • Infections like shingles, syphilis, or Lyme disease
  • Porphyria – metabolic disorders affecting nerves and skin
  • Certain medications
  • Pressure from nearby structures (e.g., blood vessels or tumors)
  • Swelling and inflammation
  • Trauma, including surgery
  • Chronic renal insufficiency

Diagnosis and Confirmation

Diagnosing neuralgia can be challenging due to its resemblance to other conditions. Medical professionals may recommend dental examinations to rule out infections or fractures. Diagnostic tests can include blood tests for diabetes and kidney function, MRI scans, nerve conduction studies, and lumbar punctures.
