Hope I've found the right place!
I'm new to this forum, and to forums in general. OK, to computers in general, too. But I have questions about atypical trigeminal neuralgia (I am newly diagnosed) and surgical alternatives.
After months on waiting lists for an appointment with a headache specialist, I finally got in to see one, and he immediately diagnosed me with TN and scheduled me for an appointment with a neurosurgeon. There is some question as to whether or not mine is "atypical" (I will take this up with the neurosurgeon) but I think that until this question is addressed, assessing the efficacy of surgery seems to me to be premature.
Wow, once the ball started rolling, it seems to be rolling FAST. I would appreciate any input I can get.
