I’m 26 years old and first expeirenced pain in my face/teeth almost 7 years ago. I see a neurologist regularly and have had 7 MRIs however some of symptoms are spot on for TN and others aren’t so my neurologist is struggling to fully make a diagnosis.
I take 75mg of pregabalin and 40mg of amitriptyline every night which helped initially but since I’m now having flare ups pretty regularly I’m worried that they are no longer working.
The pain I get is tooth ache like pain in one tooth which then spreads up my face into my eye and ear and stays there for at least 45 minutes (not normal for TN) the pain is very intense and I find myself not being able to do anything whilst having a flare up.
Has anyone else experienced similar in the fact they haven’t been given the official TN diagnosis? My Neurologist always comments on my age and how ‘young’ I am to experience pain in this way.
Hoping to get some response as I can’t find anything else like this online.
