Hi fellow sufferers. On Friday I had the dreaded shooting pains travelling through my lower right jaw. I thought oh no here we go again.
I've been a sufferer for over twenty years and for me I had TN for 9 months then remission for 9 months. Then suddenly a six year gap and nothing. I actually believed I would never have TN again. Then last year it returned with a vengeance. This ran for Ten months, solely because my usual Tegretol no longer worked and I was put on different other tablets until Pregabalin worked. I've only been in remission for about 5/6months. I guess the Pregablin wasn't going to stay in my bloodstream long enough, because I don't think it was as strong as Tegretol was. So we'll just have to see how long this episode lasts.
im presently having to start off gradually with 50mg twice a day for about a week and if I still feel the TN coming through then the dosage will be increased.
I hope most of you have finally found relief with your TN.
