Hello @Hidden username‍, we do have a group dedicated to TN; however, there are currently not many members of that group as Carenity.us is still growing. Have you spoken to your doctor about any alterantive medicines? Have you attempted accupuncture?

I too have a form of TN.  My pain is inside my head behind the eyes.  I’m on a dosage of 900 mg oxycarbezapine, daily.  Hate to break the bubble but nothing yet is working for me. I’ve tried acupuncture & still my attacks come daily despite the medication.

latest thing we’re trying is botox.  The verdict is still out.

I have it also. I’m on gabapentin 900mg (I have neuropathy too in hands and feet) and it doesn’t control my TN pain.
