More recently I've had mild intermittent left face numbness and a few episodes of left face spasms (severe enuf that they contort my face). Had to take Valium to resolve X 1 episode.
I have a history of trigeminal neuralgia (TN) on the right side. Have had for 20 yrs.
Neuro thinks this is now TN on the left side. Bilateral TN is rare, there is no pain only the above symptoms on the left, and I don't want to believe him. Wondered if anyone else had insights about this?
