      As from today I can now add Atypical Trigeminal Neuralgia to my daily MS portfolio. Been given a fortnights supply of Carbamazepine. I ask myself what else is MS going to throw at me?

      Jackie, I had to google that.  You have face pain?  I can’t imagine how that would be.

      Atypical trigeminal neuralgia (ATN), or type 2 trigeminal neuralgia, is a form of trigeminal neuralgia, a disorder of the fifth cranial nerve. This form of nerve pain is difficult to diagnose, as it is rare and the symptoms overlap with several other disorders.

      Atypical facial pain is variable and can be characterized as dull, aching, burning, sharp, squeezing, or crushing quality and has a psychogenic origin. The may occur on both sides of the face differing from trigeminal nerve pain.
