Neurology Now - great article on TN

Several people here suffer immensely from Trigeminal Neuralgia.  The latest issue of Neurology Now has a well written piece on TN that you might find informative and useful.

I have pain and stinging caused by my trigeminal nerve.  My cheak, and teath and jaw on the right side are affected.  The thing is, it is not the excruciating pain that they describe as TN.  I guess it is causing nerve pain, but it is not yeat that bad?

Thank you for that link Lulu, I could open it with out a problem.
Opie74 I have also had pain like they describe it, but not nearly as bad as the worst types are (over 10 on the scale). It was possibly a 9, but it was so quickly over so that made it "not so bad". It seems like I had it exacly at the places they talk about. I´ve just had it on my right side of face, on three locations, right above my eye, beside my nose (on the cheek) and front of my jaw. Sorry not sure of my English here.

Mine does not go away quickly.  It lasts long enough that I sometimes wonder if I have a cavity in a tooth or that I might have a sinus infection.  The sign that it is the nerve is when my lips start burning.  That usuallly lasts for 30 min to a few hours.
