For many years, I was told that my symptoms are those of a migraine. I took medicines to ease the pain, took alternative therapies such as acupuncture. But all these did not help much.
It was only 4 years back that one of my doctors told me that I am suffering from TN. But since the identification of TN is only symptom based, I am not clear whether it is TN or migraine. Sometime when the pain starts I am off for hours or even days. I have a stabbing, piercing pain on the left hand side of my face starting from the head through forehead, left eye, left cheek and left jaw. Sometimes I also see stars and my left side of the face swells up.
Please advice if someone had researched on the same topic.
