Hello everyone! I'm not in the UK but I joined because I have a lot to learn about TN. I just started having left sided facial pain 5 days ago and I went to the doctor today. I was expecting to hear that I had a pinched nerve or something but after describing the numbness and pain to him I left the office with information about TN. I'm already taking medications that he would prescribe for this for my chronic migraine condition so I don't think I will be adding anything new right now. I take Lamictal, Gabapentin, and Zonisimide. He said that if I didn't already have these medicines on board then I would be in much more pain. I will be having an MRI soon and revisiting him after to discuss all of this more. I know my pain is not as severe as some of you are having but it is still pain. What are some tips to get comfortable enough to sleep at night and cope during the day? Thanks for any suggestions you have to share.
