Trigeminal Neuralgia

Woodinville, WA(Zone 8b)

Anybody out there had experience with this?

I think I may have had very minor "episodes" in the past, but thought they were just toothaches. I am, I hope, just finishing up with what is my second real bout of this. It usually lasts about 3 days. Over the counter medications help somewhat but don't really get the pain when it's in full force. I slept with an ice bag on my face last night and that seems to have helped.

I'm 49, just short of the age when this tends to start to affect people.
