Re: Diagnosed with TN, on meds, still in pain...

My sister had vascular decompression surgery for hers and it worked beautifully. She had it at Presbyterian Hospital at the University of Pittsburgh where the procedure was invented. I strongly recommend researching this option. The facial pain association has a list of approved neurosurgeons if you can't travel to Pittsburgh.
