Facial Pain and Trigeminal Neuralgia

According to the Mayo Clinic, trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic pain condition that affects the trigeminal nerve, which carries sensation from your face to your brain. Mild stimulation to the face, such as brushing your teeth or putting on make-up may trigger a jolt of excruciating pain. More specifically, symptoms can include episodes of severe, shooting or jabbing pain that feel like an electric shock, bouts of pain lasting from a few seconds to several minutes, and a constant aching, burning feeling that may occur before it evolves into the spasm like pain of trigeminal neural. Trigeminal neuralgia affects women more often than men, and it is more likely in individuals over age 50.

What Will the Judge Want to Know About My Mental Health Symptoms?

Although some applications for disability are approved based on their initial application and medical records, most individuals who are approved for benefits will ultimately need to appear before an Administrative Law Judge. The Administrative Law Judge that hears your case is a Social Security Administration employee who hears nothing but cases involving disability benefits. Different judges have different styles. Some judges will allow the claimant's attorney to elicit all or most of the testimony from their client, while other judges will ask many, many questions.

Post-traumatic stress disorder strongly linked to nightmares

Most people do not frequently have nightmares. When looking at the public as a whole, for instance, those who complain about the influence of nightmares on their lives make up just about 5% of the total population. In another study, it came in at 3%. No matter how you look at it, it's not that common.
