    If you think you might have TN you need to find a good neurologist or a good pain management Dr. I have had TN for 22 years. I saw a pain management Dr. For almost 10 years. I had 3 different kind of surgeries to try to help with the pain. It wasn't until I went to pain management that my pain is now under control.
