Hi, my name is Nicky, 45 years old and a TN sufferer. My first really bad attack was 12 years ago out the blue. Constant pain for about 2 weeks and then nothing........till recently!
Last 4 months I've had 5 attacks of electric shocks through right side of mouth then burning and red all the side of my face. These attacks last from a night to couple of days but the pain is excruciating and then shocks on top of the pain, horrific. I have started carbamazepine twice a day at 200mg and the pain has subsided but am getting few twinges through teeth. Should I stop tablets now as pain stopped, at least for now!
This is an awful thing to suffer with terrible pain that comes from nowhere, I've also spent a fortune at dentist only to be told teeth are fine!
Thank you for listening xx
