ive been recently diagnosed with having TN after experiencing terrible pain to left side of my face involving the teeth, gums inner and outer cheek and deep inside my ear. The comes on after triggers of eating and drinking and cold air blowing on my face and a lasts a few minutes at a time. Its been relieved after a couple of weeks taking carbamazepine gradually increasing to 600mg has made a difference and i can finally take hold of my experience and start some research
On reading about this condition a common feature is a trigger point on the face , or a trigger by light touch. I dont have a trigger point on my face. i do have sensivitity on the inside of my face . Also light touch doesnt trigger. Ie lightly stroking my face.
im questioning my diagnosis ???
My dental health is good confirmed by my dentist. I also have cleareness from ENT.
Should i be questioning my diagnosis?
Much appreciate your experience
