Exercise causing TN pain

Posted , 5 users are following.

My latest bout of trigeminal neuralgia came on Christmas eve and I suddenly thought; prior to that I had been bouncing on a mini trampoline every day for 30 minutes for nearly 2 months. Is it possible the bouncing caused the trigeminal vein to move in my head because I had been pain free for about 6 months. I'd like to start bouncing again but not sure if I should.

    Grex,

    If something triggers, I'd suggest stay away from that something.

    My something was sleeping on stomach. Wouldn't trigger often, but the second time taught me to stay on my back. Wala, haven't had that trigger since. 5 years about.

    It is possible for TN to enter periods of dormancy only for a reoccurrence to happen at some point further down the line (from days to even years depending on the individual).  It may just be coincidence with the trampoline.  Your best thing to do is keep a pain diary and see if the bouncing does trigger pain on several occasions.

      Yes, I think it's the actual bouncing that has disturbed the nerves or something. Shouldn't have been so silly. Thanks for replying
