I am 26 years old and was just diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia. I have never followed or participated in a blog before so I am hoping I am doing this correctly. I just really need help, tips or anything at this time would be very helpful and much appreciated.
I was diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia a few weeks ago. To keep it short, I had horrific (the most unbearable pain) I have ever felt on the right side of my face. I thought it was a cavity and after Xrays and exams I was referred to a Neurologist where I was diagnosed with TN.
I am having a very hard time comprehending how/ why I got this and although my family is supportive I feel no one understands what I’m going through and how horrible the pain can be.
One of my concerns is now the right side of my neck, back and arm are stiff on in addition to right side of my face having TN. The neurologist said it’s just my nerves acting up and there is nothing they can do. I really can’t live like this and was just curious if anyone else has had the back and neck pain on one half of their body and does anyone know the likelihood everything will just go away? Thank you for your help in advance.
