From the literature of Drugs.com:
Causes of Trigeminal neuralgia
The pain of trigeminal neuralgia comes from the trigeminal nerve. This nerve carries the feelings of touch and pain from the face, eyes, sinuses, and mouth to the brain.
The condition usually affects adults, but it may affect anyone at any age. Trigeminal neuralgia may be part of the normal aging process.
Trigeminal neuralgia may be caused by:
Pressure on the trigeminal nerve from a swollen blood vessel or tumor
Often, no cause is found.
Doctors are more likely to find a cause in a person who is younger than age 40.
