PDF: Face Pain - A guide for patients and carers


This booklet is intended to provide general information about chronic face pain. It has been written to answer some of the questions asked by people who are affected by some of the more severe and persistent forms of facial pain, as well as for their families and carers.



However, because there are a number of different causes of chronic face pain and because each person is affected differently, it is important that you speak to your own GP or to the doctor or nurse who is looking after you, since they are in a position to offer advice and information to meet your own specific needs. 


Sometimes there is a dental cause for the pain and so you may also need to see a dentist.
