I'm 24 and have been suffering with TN for about a year and a half now. After going around the houses thinking it was Sinusitis I was suffering from, finally I am been listened to after many tearful appointments and phone calls to the doctor. I have been prescribed Carbamazepine however I really do not want to spend the best years of my life taking countless amounts of drugs with side effects I can't control. I would rather have it dealt once properly. However I was managing to control the attacks with diet and Tramadol but the shape of the pain is changing and its really effecting the quality of my life now. Does anyone have any advice that could help? xxxx
