Tic Douloureux (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Tic douloureux cannot be prevented.
Although pain from tic douloureux can go away without treatment for months to years, the disorder is usually progressive. Attacks can become more frequent over time. There are no long-term medical consequences of the disorder. Tic douloureux is purely a pain syndrome.
