I need Advice - Just diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia
I am a 25 year old Female. The past 4 days i have not slept due to severe pain on the left side of my face. My whole left side of my face. I went today to see a Doctor and said i have Trigeminal Neuralgia, asked if i wanted him to recommend me to a Neurological surgeon and put me on a Medication called Lyrica 75mg. Then sent me packing home. It wasn't till home i looked online and read more into this disorder, and i'm afraid that the longer i wait for his phone call to make a meeting with the nero the more severe my condition could become.
Should i go to Emergency at a hospital and get a second opinion asap and MRI on request?
I'm in so much pain . HELP!!!
