thanks and you're right of course. I'm not good at waiting...but sometimes I have no choice.
My ear pain is deep as well...way inside...but I do feel encouraged that the scalp thing is unusual with TN especially since it was the first weirdness I noticed. I'm very hopeful that my ENT will find some sinus/ear infection or even some tmj issue. Not that TMJ problems are a piece of cake, but at least they seem more manageable than TN from what I've read.
So, fingers crossed for next Tuesday. I am keeping a journal of sorts of what's been going on, because, if my head is anything like my car, it will suddenly stop having issues the minute I walk into the doctor's office...only to begin again ten minutes after I leave. Ha!
