I guess I've been having TN fir some months prior to getting it confirmed. Doctor put me on Tegeretol 2 x 100mg a day which took the pain away immediately, increasing to 2x 400gr a day as I was experiencing "breakthrough pain". This went well and the pain disappeared. Then it was suggested to reduce the meds and I had got down to 1 tablet every other day. Then, it came back! Tried the increasing the Tegretol (with Drs advise) but it ain't shifting! Now my face is slightly swollen and I feel as if I've had an injection from dentistry in my gum. Pretty fed up. Any info would be most grateful. Sue.
