Trigeminal Neuralgia and Fibro

Postby turnpages » Thu May 17, 2012 2:09 pm

Hello everyone,

This is just a quick question to find out if Trigeminal Neuralgia comes with Fibro or if these are two separate issues?

THANK YOU!!

Hi
It looks like its a separate condition but it affects the nerves just like fibro and does have the same symptoms so therefore it could be linked but i have not heard of it mentioned, here is a link on it- :dunno:

Thank you!

I didn't realise that fibro is related to nerves, so that's new to me, but that would then make sense...

I had/have TN too.

The last time it flared must be going on 7/8 years now.

I didn't start with fibro until 3 years ago, diagnosed in October 2011
