I've had atypical tn for over 6 years and I've looked over so many of these boards over the years, but don't remember ever seeing anything about getting temporary relief from things like mints, halls, or even eating. While the movement in my face can make my pain work, I've always had a favorable reaction, some pain relief, when I have a halls or mint in my mouth, or even eating some times. None of the doctors seem to understand this, in fact I was sent down the endocrinologist path years ago, which obviously turned up nothing. I just think that tn, especially type 2, is so misunderstood. There are symptoms and ways it comes on or reacts that doctors just don't understand. I've had no relief from mvd surgery or the cyber knife and I'm currently trying acupuncture. Thoughts anyone???
