In rare instances, the extremely painful disorder trigeminal neuralgia (TN) may develop as a result of multiple sclerosis (MS). In this article, we will be discussing the case of a 56-year-old female with TN. Antidepressants and analgesics can lessen the pain, although they were not very effective, and higher doses led to greater drowsiness and a poorer quality of life. Radiofrequency ablation helped this patient significantly lower the pain and led to an improved lifestyle. This case presents right-side radiofrequency ablation of Gasserian ganglion in a patient with unilateral TN with MS.
