i have had a facial twitch for a few years now which escalated two years ago following the passing of my father. it turned into the most horrific pain on the left hand side of my face running across my brow, cheek and jaw. i was put on amytriptaline for the twitch and then carbamazepine for the pain. i am 25. i had a mri last year on my brain to check for things like tumours etc which was. GP believes it to be TN. got follow up tomorrow (21/02). last doctor mentioned surgery which i know is a big step but at this stage am willing to try anything, its got to the point where i have wanted to drive into a wall just to distract from the pain. the pills are taking the edge off to a point but making me sick which isnt great. ive heard about TN and heard it tends to be older people who get it so im a bit alone at just 25. Am hoping to get some answers and a plan of action tomorrow but would be grateful for any advice. thanks. xx
