Treatment suggested may be because your pain diagnosis of trigeminal neuralgia. You may please try to see any mal-occlusion of teeth causing trauma to your temporo-Mandibular joint causing such extensive pain. Please do consultation for TMJ pain and occlusal splint.

A nerve block may be right for you if you have facial pain that does not respond to other treatments.Talk to your physician about it.
Try temporomandibular joint correction using a splint. Check the expert for occlusal problems.
Dear lybrate-user, nerve block treatment is generally safe if performed by a qualified practitioner. Any treatment can have its side effects. You should ask your treating doctor to explain the procedure and its side effects to you. You should also ask your doctor any questions and doubts you have. Your doctor knows what is the procedure to be performed. To understand your problem in detail I would like t have your symptoms and reports in detail. You may consult me or have a second opinion by a qualified practitioner.
