Salman Khan who underwent a surgery for nerve disorder trigeminal neuralgia recently is experiencing pain in his jaw again. The pain returned while shooting for Kabir Khan's Ek Tha Tiger in Cuba, reports Mumbai Mirror.

“Salman is feeling a knot in his jaw,” a source from the film unit confirmed to the tabloid.

“Salman is on medication for the same. But he doesn’t worry about it much. People suffer from all kinds of conditions - blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol. This too is a physical condition. This doesn’t mean that it will deter Salman from living his life to the fullest," Salman's friend shared with the tabloid.

Salman Khan's 'painful' story
For nearly four years, Salman Khan kept his nerve disorder close to his chest and continued to work even though at times he felt an 'electric shock' in a part of his forehead. Salman said he underwent an eight-hour-long surgery for the nerve disorder, Trigeminal Neuralgia on August 31 in the US, though he was initially told it would be only a 30-minute operation.

Before going to US for the surgery, Salman Khan shared with HT's Minkashi Saini about the disease in August last year. “I am suffering from trigeminal neuralgia, a facial nerve problem I have had since the last seven years. But now, it’s getting worse. Ab dard hadd se paar ho gaya hai and I am going to kill it."
