Trigeminal Neuralgia

  • By Nancy

    I have TN and I was wondering if anyone could tell me how long it lasts. I’m currently on meds to control it, but I would like to know if I have to stay on these meds forever or when I could eventially get off them.

    Hi Nancy, these are good questions to ask your treating physician. People experience TN in different ways and use various treatments to find which ones work best for them. If you haven’t already, call your neurologist’s office and discuss your concerns with the nurse or make an appt. to talk to the doc. I haven’t suffered from TN myself. I hope one of our readers with TN will respond.
