Ive never actually been properly diagnosed with Trigeminal nerve pain but after two years of really exasperating face tingling on the left side which progressed to slight pain one doctor said he thought it might be this and put me on Pregabalin. This has given some relief as long as I don't miss doses but I have now been on it for about two years and never been reviewed at all...I've put 20 pounds on in this time
When I close my eyes, my left eye never completely closes and I have to sleep on that side to keep it shut. Now I've developed a tic in the left side of my face, it started in the eyelid but I can feel it in my ear and jaw now. It's really getting me down and I kind of feel fobbed off by the doctors.
Thanks for listening, any advice would be gratefully received
