I got my first Trigeminal neuralgia attack last year. It lasted 3 weeks and it was 24/7. I was out of my mind. I went to two dentists. The first one prepped a tooth for a crown....and the pain continued. I went back because I thought they did something wrong...they readjusted the temporary crown. I went to a 2nd dentist who couldn't find anything wrong and he put a different temporary crown on the tooth. Both ended up referring me to an oral surgeon. He said my teeth were fine...I needed to see a Neuralogist. This is when my nightmare began.
1. Trigeminal neuralgia with a MS diagnosis
2. Trigemial neuralgia with another neurology issue
3. Trigeminal neuralgia with any other diagnosis
4. Trigemial neuralgia alone with no other symptoms
I got diagnosed with TN in January. It's the worst of my many neurological symptoms. Do you have secondary TN (caused by MS or some other neurological disorder) or TN as its own thing? By itself, it's way more than anyone should have to deal with. I hope it's not causing you problems at the moment.
