TMD was more prevalent in younger individuals whereas trigeminal neuralgia was more prevalent in older patients with prevalence of facial pain slightly more in females(50.91%) than males(49.08%). Dull continuous pain was seen in TMD(18.18%), pain on aggravation was seen in trigeminal neuralgia(7.27%) and atypical facial pain(7.27%) and burning sensation was seen in post herpetic neuralgia(1.82%) with most patients reporting with facial pain for more than one month (50%) and post herpetic neuralgia pain less than 10 days.
