ive been on tegrotol yuk not really helpin
When I was on rotation a few years ago with a doctor we taught me about this. In many cases nothing can truely prove you have a specific condition, but you can get a good idea.
I bealieve test such as a CT or an MRI can be used, the type od symptoms that you are having, and to quote uptodate 'Electrophysiologic trigeminal reflex testing is probably useful for distinguishing classic TN from secondary TN."
That is the best I could find.
I had some nerve tests done in my mouth(as that is where I felt the pain in the beginning), also I had a MRI done which also showed there were complications to my TN.. On top of that they did a CT scan and found I had major sinus issues.. so I have been told that there is no definite answer, they can piece it together very well..
