Özet

Objective: Trigeminal neuralgia is one of the most common causes of chronic neuropathic facial pain. Psychiatric and psychosocial disorders such as especially depression, anxiety disorder and sleep disorders are more frequent in patients with trigeminal neuralgia; however, a clear temporal-causal relationship between trigeminal neuralgia with specific psychiatric and psychosocial disorders has not been well established. Our aim in this study is to compare the depression and anxiety levels, and sleep quality among patients with trigeminal neuralgia and healthy control group.
