Hi, my name is Kelly. I was told Dec 1, 2008 that I have TN. Mine they say is due to a softball accident back in 2006. Mine started the 1st of Nov, 2008. The experience was dreadful. I thought my brain was going to blow up. The first attack lasted about an hour. My Dr. thought I hemoraged. All the tests showed nothing. He sent me to a brain Dr. He thinks that because of the softball accident I have a blood vessel that blows up like a balloon and then goes down again. Because the nerves in the brain has a coating this action would take about this time to rub the nerve the wrong way (bun in tended.) But a few days after the first attack I had another that lasted 6 weeks straint. Morning, noon and night. I call it "The Ugly Green Monster." He put me on Teg. But that is not working well. So he wants more labs and put me on another. But I don't get the pain like it says on the web. I get mine mostly on the left side of the head. It's strong and it's wild. I find that moving, house work alone sets it off. Only a few times did it move down my face. Anyone else like that?
