Hi all, I'll try and keep it short and simple, I was diagnosed with TN just over 3 months ago, I'm 25 and don't yet know what my triggers are as most probably don't!! Apart from the obvious severity of pain I deal with currently on a daily basis as so far no medication has been successful for me and I'm yet to be referred to a neurologist as my gp is insisting I try multiple drugs first! As u are all aware the pain is beyond unbearable but my biggest problem is more the fear I live with... I am constantly petrified of when my next attack is going to take place, I'm on edge all the time, feel isolated and when the attack is actually happening I literally break down every time. I try staying calm and telling myself it will pass but it's becoming more unbearable than the pain itself living in fear and loosing control! Has anyone else felt this way and if so how do you cope with it and have you any advice...??!
Thanks and I'd be so greatful for any advice at all x
