I've just joined this group, after the onset of my second bout of TN. The disorder was first diagnosed 18 months ago; I was prescribed Tegretol and took just 1 tablet x 100mg. for about 3 months, after which the pain subsided and I've enjoyed a period of remission of over a year. One week ago, it returned with vengeance! The pain is much worse and now affects the lower region of my left eye, as well as the left jaw. I'm taking 3x100mg per day and seeing my GP this coming week for a drug review.
Having read the message posted by Michelle, I realise that my case is fairly 'small beer' but as it looks as if I'm setting out on a journey that could easily affect my future quality of life, any advice at this early stage would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Colin
