Hi Iv'e been diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN), with more

Hi Iv'e been diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN), with more description of symptoms coming to light...to my pain specialist...he has suggested I also/or suffer from Taroxysmal Hemicrania (TH).
Have done some researching, do now notice significant symptom resemblances!! However, I have suffered from multiple PE"s requiring Warfarin, awa, stomach ulcers requiring ongoing treatment. What else can I do.
I am terribly afraid of the long term use of opiodid (?spelling) with mortality. I am only 57 y.o & mentality feel very young, with very young cxhildren & now grandchildren

Hi, my Dad is 74 years old and has been diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia. It has come on with a bang so to speak. Our doctor has prescribed him Tegretol which was not working but has now increased it to 200mg 3 times perday. I asked our doctor if he should see a neurologist in case there is a tumor or anything and he said no. Also, I asked if there is any kind of surgery or procedures to help get rid of it and he also said no. He said that it will most likely burn itself out. I was just wondering if all of this is true as what I read online is totally different from what he is telling me.
