I've had 4 episodes of facial pain in the past 7 months or so. The doc just diagnosed me with Trigeminal Neuralgia. He did a full neurological exam and everything was fine. Other than some occasional mild vertigo and some episodes of extreme fatigue (which is such a broad symptom), I've been fine. I do have Ulcerative Colitis, but he said there's no link between UC & trigeminal neuralgia. He did however mention that sometimes it can be a symptom of MS. It really shocked me, since I've never even thought of that before. He gave me a referral to a neurologist and ordered a Brain MRI. Anyone with MS experience TN as an early symptom of MS?
Thanks in advance !
