hi guys i really could do with your advice... im in the uk and was diagnoised with trigeminal neauralgia and glossophryngeal neauralgia by my local neurologist who started me on carbamazepine i was already on high doses of lyrica and nortriptyline for migraines which now i feel was the tn all along...anyway i decided to ask my doctor for a second opinion to a professor Zack who is a very specialised in tn so i thought she may have better options for me and maybe a view to surgical options.Well at my appointment she said i did not have tn but tmd??? im in total shock i no my symptoms are being caused by tn....what do i do im devastated a letter will be going to my gp and i dont want my gp to not believe me. I thought she would help me i am in total agony.Do i contact PALS for advice or just not see her again and stay with my origional neuro? My gp wont allow me a third opinion im sure....in the mean time im suffering meds are not controlling symptoms and quality of life is nil! Im devastated any advice would be very grateful thanks
