Trigeminal neuralgia
I suffer from Trigeminal Neuralgia.  I know that the pain from this is caused by the swelling of my sinuses which then presses on the Trigeminal nerve.  My question is:  Can strong chemical smells cause the sinuses to swell, thus, bringing the onset of this trigeminal pain?

I dont have any experience with this but I thought Id offer my two cents. Im just guessing that anything that has the potential to cause inflammation in the sinuses could be an irritant for your neuralgia but Im not sure if a chemical would be enough of an irritant or not.

Take care.
