Trigeminal Neuralgia (Sp)

Recommended Posts

I saw my doc the other day. She has been away for over a year and so I had to go over everything that has happened in the past 8 months. My worsening chemical allergy and my newly discovered wheat allergy.

I told her about what I call my 'face pain' when I have an allergic reaction to wheat. Long story short she thinks it may be Trigeminal Neuralgia and wants me to trial Nortriptyline HCL 10 mg for two months.

I have sleeping problems and depression on and off, always after an allergic reaction. She feels it will help with both of those as well as work to help prevent the pain attacks.

I have been reading up on TN and it sounds more like Atypical TN to me.

The face pain reaction to wheat has always stumped me but now it seems to make some sense.

Anyone try this drug? Or have TN? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.
