Trying to decide if I should go to a neurologist.. I am not taking any medication at this time for Trigeninal Neuralgia. Seems like the episodes are increasing.
You should really see a neuro right away - and one that is familiar with TN. TN is usually controlled by finding a drug cocktail that works for each individual, and then possibly going down the surgery route - but again, you really need to be under the care of a neuro to find out which options work for you. Best of luck - I know this is a horrible diagnosis :(
