Trigeminal Neuralgia Cause #2: Stroke

A stroke occurs when there is poor blood flow to the brain resulting in cell death. Stroke can be divided into hemorrhagic (bleeding) and ischemic (decreased blood flow) types. Signs and symptoms of stroke include dizziness, inability to move one side of the body, slurring of speech, loss of consciousness, and issues with vision, among others.

A stroke can cause trigeminal neuralgia if it affects where the trigeminal nerve enters at the lower part of the brain. Some risk factors of stroke include high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and smoking.
