Diagnosis of neuralgia consists of several steps - examination, collection of anamnesis, study of medical history, laboratory tests (clinical tests of urine and blood, biochemical blood analysis), instrumental diagnosis.
Instrumental diagnosis of neuralgia may include:
- X-ray methods;
- examination of the ocular fundus (for newborns).
Along with these examinations, other types of diagnostics may also be prescribed if the doctor deems it necessary.
Treatment of neuralgia can be started only after the diagnosis has been confirmed. It should be aimed not only at eliminating the symptoms of peripheral nerve damage, but also at combating the underlying disease (in the secondary type). For primary pain, it can be treated with an injection of anesthetic (most commonly, novocaine is used) and B vitamins. But if we are talking about the treatment of neuralgia in children, allergics, and patients with secondary neuralgia or people who for some reason do not accept drug therapy or it did not help them, modern medicine uses physiotherapy and massage.
