Is there a cure for atypical neuralgia?

Atypical neuralgia can sometimes be effectively cured or managed, depending on the case. Microvascular decompression has found to be effective for many people with the condition. For those who don't have surgery, medications like anticonvulsants may make pain minimal or manageable. Trigeminal neuralgia in general is known to recur, however, so even if your condition seems cured after a treatment, it's possible for the condition to return.
