Atypical facial pain is a condition that causes persistent, aching pain in the face that is not attributed to an underlying medical illness. At NYU Langone, our doctors diagnose and treat atypical facial pain based on the results of a comprehensive neurological evaluation, with the goal of alleviating your symptoms as soon as possible. Whether facial pain is mild or severe, our physicians work with you to identify possible causes and to develop a personalized treatment plan, so that you can go about your daily activities free of pain.
Because the right medication is often successful at relieving atypical facial pain, our team of experts works to find the best medication—or combination of medications—to treat your particular symptoms.
