I have been diagnosed with MCS by 3 different specialists; however, none have addressed the burning in my face and eyes after an exposure. Is there a link between MCS and trigeminal nerve damage? I have read about how the olefactory system is affected but not much pertaining to possible trigeminal nerve damage from chemical stimuli. Is trigeminal nerve damage possible with those suffering from MCS?
Dr. Rea’s response:
Yes, we have seen this in several cases.
