What helps you pain? I actually hand trigeminal neuropathic pain, but not listed here. Was your pain caused by dental work?

      For me it started gradually, during a very stressful time and also I didn't sleep much during that time. I managed my pain with Tegratol, reached 1400mg :/ Also Cannabis helped, especially THC rich types because it made coping with the pain easier and helped save my sanity. Best thing I did was the MVD surgery and I believe that using Cannabis with TN saved me from having PTSD now as some have after having the surgery

      Dental work can cause a TN flare up but so far we don't know why I have it. I'm actually finally getting an MRI soon so I'm happy about that. The methadone (5mg twice a day) I take for my very severe Restless Leg Syndrome helps my TN enormously.

      No we aren’t exactly sure the cause of my TN. I woke up with the pain one day. I actually had to have all my teeth removed years later but that was due to having a feeding tube and not because of my TN. I still struggle daily and it keeps me from being able to wear my dentures. 😞
