Trigeminal Neuralgia Following Vein Treatment

hi i developed trigeminal neuralgia after having a spider vein removed by laser. Is it possible that my trigeminal nerve was startled (for use of a better word) as in time this should calm down and go back to normal?

Trigeminal neuralgia induction after laser treatment for a spider vein is far fetched ..

I would ask a neurologist to give you guidance.

There are many possibilities. A neurologist will be able to make the best determination of what occurred.  If a vessel was treated adjacent to the nerve, there could be some residual inflammation, but again, the neurologist can best assess you.
