The first time the pain occured I thought I had a tumour and the whole of my head was going to explode. I had gone to the doctors the week before with terrible pain in my jaw and thought it could have been an absess on my tooth. I didnt see the doctor but the nurse practiciner she looked in my mouth and said yes you have an abcess take paracetamol and a course of anti-biotics, of course nothing worked and about the 5 day of thinking that I was now dying not able to eat or drink anything went to another doctor in a different area because I physically couldnt get to my own surgery. He immediatley asked a number of questions and said its ok I know what it is he explained about TN and prescribed Tegretol although it took 24hrs to start working I was just happy that I wasnt going mad. It has caused a great disruption to my life and I am finding it very difficult to cope,I am also trying to find out as much as possible about TN this site has been great.
