Does anyone suffer from trigeminal neuralgia? My gp has disgnosed it after I have been suffering awful jaw pains for 3 weeks that have reduced me to tears and my dentist confirmed it was not my teeth. Silly things can set the awful pain off such as a duvet just touching my chin or drinking a cup of coffee. It is v unpleasant and I am hoping the diagnosis is wrong and it may just go away as quickly as it came as I do not want to live on the prescribed anti convulsant tablets that seem to be the only thing to help with nerve pain.
I would like an MRI to confirm diagnosis and wondering if other sufferers had had one done, what dose of medication they are on and if it can go as quickly as it came!
