Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic pain condition which usually affects the trigeminal nerve. Trigeminal neuralgia is more common among women than men, and it is more likely to occur in people over 50. People with trigeminal neuralgia should avoid drinking coffee because coffee contains a lot of caffeine which will stimulate nerves and trigger arteriolar spasm, causing the deterioration of the disease. Besides, people with trigeminal neuralgia should avoid greasy or spicy foods, limit alcohol drinking and smoking. Keywords: caffeine trigeminal neuralgia
