Priscilla Raymond is someone who is all too familiar with the extreme pain caused by trigeminal neuralgia. Raymond’s journey when facial pain caused her to visit her primary care physician. Her PCP originally thought it was a sinus infection, but after ruling that out, suggested that she make an appointment with a dentist. Because of the type of pain, and the area that it was in, her dentist believed that she had trigeminal neuralgia. Thanks to CyberKnife Priscilla was able to drop her pain level was down in just a few days.
