I have some questions for those of you have suffer with TN. My mother has had TN for the past couple of years, but just recently been suffering with the TN pain on the left side of her face everyday… Sometimes the pain would last a couple of seconds or hours non stop. Do any of you have any good tips on how to get through the pain? She is having an MVD done in a couple of weeks which she is very nervous about, and so are we. Have anyone of you had this procedure done, and what did you think of the recovery and outcome? I’m hoping for the best but I’m nervous for her! Thanks!
