Here's A New One

Symptom, that is.

I have done a bit of reading on symptoms, and never came across this one until I described it to my doctor. Well, it could be a secondary symptom, because it is caused by damaged myelin. But it is
actually a whole new disease, trigeminal neuralgia (TN), also known as tic douloureux.

It feels like a lightning storm in my mouth. Wow.

It doesn't hurt, it HURTS.

The good news is TN is rare, and it isn't constant. It gives breaks between episodes. Like MS, it affects more women than men.

Oh, I'm so with you on this one Vicki - please see my blog for the recent chronicle on my latest TN. I'd love to swap notes on this with you - my blog email address is available on my profile.
