Trigeminal Neuralgia and arachnoid cysts
I would like to know if there is a connection between arachnoid cysts and the onset of trigeminal neuralgia. I was diagnosed with TN back in February after an MRI. The MRI also revealed a right temporal lobe arachnoid cyst.

My TN symptoms are increasing and I am also experiencing right sided numbness and weakness in my arms and legs. I experience bilateral TN symptoms as well vertigo, visual problems and sensations of paralysis and distortion in the right side of my face. it also affects my right eye with a sensation of feeling closed.

Your opinions would be appreciated.
