I am just new to this chat board, and was wondering if anyone else out there suffers from TN. I was diagnosed just about one and a half years ago and am now on the wait list for surgery.
I took a long time to get diagnosed, and lots of different drugs were tried, too! Finally, my Neurologist put me on Tegretol and we slowly increased the amount until the pain was more under control than not. I have good days and some really bad ones, but it is much better than it was.
I would be interested to hear about anyone else's experience with TN and especially from anyone that has had the surgery. I am right side TN and have had the excrutiating pain for over 2 years now.
