Hi everyone, I have been suffering with TN for about the last 15 years, and recently the flare-ups have been coming thick and fast. I am on 200mg carbamazepine, three times a day, and 900mg gabapentin three times a day. I also take 50mg amitriptyline at night. None of this works, and they all just make me feel so awful - particularly the carbamazepine, which is why I only take 600mg per day. Well I have now got an appointment to see a neurologist next Friday(the 19th Novemeber 2016). Can anyone tell me what I can expect from this appointment? Is there anything I should do to prepare for this, or remember to mention etc. I'm 63 years old, and suffer with post-polio syndrome as well, although I don't think this has any bearing on my TN.
Thanking you all in anticipation.
