I was diagnosed in June 2016, text book symptoms of the electric shock like pain, immediate relief with meds. However the next 3 months were horrible, drugs at dosages too high for me, two bad allergic reactions during which my symptoms were more like atypical TN...burning, bruised like pain, constant pain, very very few electric shock like pain. I went off everything for a few days to clear my system and then went back onto gabapentin 100 mg twice a day and nortriptline 10 mg at night. Pain was tolerable but sometimes exhausting as it was fairly constant, like someone had hit me in the face. After 6 weeks of this my pain has changed it is now intermittent "jabs" or mini electric shock like pain. Has any one experienced this? Does the characteristics of your pain change? Thank you for sharing.
