I have been for a second option and seen a neurologist, I was lucky getting an appointment so soon.. anyway the upshot is it has been confirmed that Iím having cluster migraines but also suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia, basically the nerves on one side of my face have become damaged which gives me constant almost constant pain in my left temple and jaw, and then I was getting the Cluster Migraines on top of that.. the attacks were lasting for about 2 hours at a time.. Iím now on medication for the Trigeminal Neuralgia and for the first time the pain stopped last night about 10PM, after a day of intense pain when none of the pain killers would do anything at all.. I even got around 5 hours sleep.. I have had an attack this morning butís itís mild compared to what Iíve been going though.. I feel confident that now Iím on my way to getting this thing sorted.. thanks to everybody
