I have have been having horrendous facial pain for a while. I thought it was sensitive teeth but after a few dentist’ visits I was told it wasn’t. My GP then confirmed it was Trigeminal Neuralgia. He told me it was nothing to do with my MS and prescribed carbamazepine. I was on it a few days. No change to the pain and I noticed that my other symptoms have been getting worse. My wonderful MS nurse confirmed that my TN was an MS symptom and that I was having a relapse. She got me steroids- methylprednisolone which I’ve been taking since Friday. Anyway- I don’t see any improvement. My walking is awful, I fell at work and I’m taking a few days off. I can barely eat or speak my facial pain is so bad. Has anyone suffered from this? Does the carmamazepine start working eventually? I’m really struggling😕 any advice?
