Living With Facial Pain

MRI.....confused


#1

I got my MRI report today. It says …”a blood vessel crosses the superior margin of the left nerve entry zone”…
the left side is my TN side. What does this mean?
Thanks for your help!


#2

I just had mvd surgery 7 weeks ago for tn on my left side after suffering for 4 years. The surgeon took 2 large blood vessels and coagulated them to separate them from a nerve they were touching causing my pain. At this time I have no pain and only some slight numbness along my jawline and in the corner of my mouth. Hopefully this has taken care of the pain for good. Looks as if you have a similar issue. Talk to your neuroligist and ask him what he recommends. Good luck to you.
