An interactive questionnaire developed by the Oregon Health & Science University Department of Neurological Surgery allows patients to self-diagnose facial pain based on a brief series of questions. The "Trigeminal Neuralgia - Diagnostic Questionnaire" may be found at: https://neurosurgery.ohsu.edu/tgn.php (accessed April 7, 2011). An artificial intelligence method (neural network modeling) provides immediate feedback to the patient regarding the diagnosis and patient education resources. [14]

For patient education information, see Brain & Nervous System Center, as well Trigeminal Neuralgia (Facial Nerve Pain), Tic Douloureux, and Pain Medications.
