I've had my TN for over a year (diagnosed at 22) now which started in my jaw/teeth on the left side of my face. I started a very high stress job in January, and now I am experiencing intense migraines at work behind my eyes. I knew it was a matter of time before the disease progressed, but I hadn't experienced a migraine in my entire life until one month ago. Since the migraine caused pain directly behind my left eye and intense nausea, I went to my normal neuro ophthalmologist (to rule out cornea issues) and she verified that it was most likely my TN causing the issues. It's becoming increasingly distracting at work- especially since the workload has steadily been increasing over the past couple of months. Any techniques for reducing the stress that is triggering my TN? I've maxed out how much I can take of Gralise (which turns me into a zombie and doesn't even touch my TN2), and I have a neuro appointment on Monday, but I have a ton of work to get finished by this weekend. I'm game for pretty much any idea at this point- whatever works.
