Hello and welcome to EHF,

I appreciate your concern for your husband.

Trigeminal neuralgia is an excruciatingly painful condition,sudden attacks of pain that lasts for seconds to minutes on one side of the face is called trigeminal neuralgia.

The continous intense burning on one side of his face is something else,I do not think it's trigeminal neuralgia.May be the stroke effected some of his facial nerves so bad that he's still feeling paresthesia.

I hope this is helpful,

Wishing him the best of health.
