Hi Konda garu, the basic difference is the nerve that is damaged. Trigeminal neuralgia is due to compression or damage of the facial nerve called the trigeminal nerve. This type of neuralgia is caused by damage, inflammation, or irritation of the trigeminal nerve. In occipital neuralgia, on the other hand, it’s the occipital nerve that’s affected. In Trigeminal neuralgia pains are in the facial area, usually on one side, however it can be bilateral. The pain can be in the forehead, nasal, cheek, jaw, mouth, ear. The pain is considered to be very severe and debilitating. In Occipital Neuralgia, except the pain is felt in the back of the head, top of the head, eyes. Up to 15% of the population have compression of this nerve and yet very few go on to develop trigeminal neuralgia. The risk for developing classical trigeminal neuralgia is in large part determined genetically. Homeopathic medicines work by managing the acute symptoms that are most troublesome and difficult to bear. They further help manage the condition by minimizing the intensity of pain. These medications are entirely natural, safe and free from any side effects. Homeopathic medications can give long-term relief in cases of trigeminal neuralgia and can enable an individual to have a good quality of life.
