I was recently diagnosed with TN
Affecting my 2nd and 3rd branch on my right side.
I have researched it and discovered that it affects people from 50 upwards most commonly
However I am only 19, I have researched this and found out that to Develop TN this young It is known to have an eruption of shingles recently
However I have had nothing of the sort
I am clueless as to what causes it and how I can help prevent it
I have been subscribed the epileptic drug and also anti inflametries
When I get a spell of pain it lasts for roughly 20-30 minutes each time, I have had 3 spells since October 2013, is it normal for it to happen this often as I read it happens more frequently as you get older?
If if is already happening within weeks apart will it get worse?
It's very rare for someone of my age and I now know it's not a very common condition however it's not curable and I have to live with this for the rest of my life
I would jus like some info on how I could help myself
