I have being diagnosed by a number of Doctors the last number of days with TN. I'm a 30 year old male think it might have being a blow I took to the head playing sports 3 weeks ago pain started about the same time. Visited the dentist told me my teeth are perfect might be a gum infection took antibiotics for that. No luck went to GP gave me gapopentin and steroids said if no improvement in 48 hours go to A&E. Long story short I stayed a number of nights in hospital and was diagnosed with TN I started on 400mg of Tegretol a day since last Monday had very bad side effects at the start but all settled down now. But I also have no pain in my face at all just wondering is this down to the Tegretol or maybe I only had TN temporally could this be true. Any help or thoughts really appreciated. Mark.
