I'm 23 years old and experienced my first attack a couple of weeks ago. I've had 4 more attacks since then and like a lot of you thought it was my tooth, so went to the dentist. They found nothing so i then went to my doctor who confirmed this is what he thinks it is. It always happens at night, when i'm lying down and from what i remember i'm usually lying on the side of the pain - so that is my trigger i think. I'm finding sleeping really hard now because i'm constantly tense, waiting for another attack. Having read up on it i'm now a bit depressed that it's a permanent condition... Apparently it will get worse as i get older! How the pain can get any worse i have no idea. I am wary of taking medication but think i'll have to if the attacks become more regular. I just hope it doesn't interfere too much with my life
