Facial pain caused by infraorbital neuralgia can be uncomfortable, and even disabling.
The infraorbital nerve (ION) is a branch of the trigeminal nerve that provides sensation to facial skin. The infraorbital nerve supplies sensory innervations to the mid face, from the cheek to the nose. Causes of infraorbital neuralgia (nerve pain) include trauma, plastic surgery, shingles or other viral infections that lead to nerve irritations. Symptoms of infraorbital neuralgia include sharp, shooting and tingling pain. Areas of the face may become very sensitive to touch.
At the Pain Center, we provide treatment for a wide variety of pain conditions, including infraorbital neuralgia.
