I have also just been diagnosed with trigeminal neuraliga (I am type two) from my GP.
After all the mystery illness about 12 -18 months ago then it all went away. It flared up again about 3 months ago and because of the past scans being clear ruling out MS ect I now have the TM diagnosis.
At the moment I am pregnant so can't go on any nerve blockers so stuck with trying to manage pain with panadine forte untill bubs is born.
I dare say in the future I will have to say a neurologist. I would have been seeing one sooner but I am just thankful that the panadine forte is managing most of the pain at the moment. I will wait untill bubs is born and I can start on some of the proper medications for the condition.
Have you seen the neuro? how did it go????
