My neurologist never told me if I definitely have TN or not. What I can tell you is that my teeth and my neck are the trigger and I can be fine for weeks and then suddenly horrible for days/weeks. I have not tried any rx meds for this - only chiropractic care which does manage the pain fairly well. The most troublesome thing for me are my teeth and god forbid if I need dental work that really sets it off. When my teeth flare up I get a horrible feeling as if there is a lit match to each tooth root in the affected area. Along with this I get neck pain and occasionally head pain on the same side or a headache. From what I've read though TN is described as facial pain and I don't have pain in my face or cheeks. The worst pain seems to be in my jaw and teeth. Does anyone else have something similar to this?

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
