I’m a newbie to the site and to the whole world of MS, having only been diagnosed a couple of weeks ago. One of my first symptoms (11 months ago) prompting my first MRI scan was the left side of my face gradually going numb and tingly. This numbness followed the pattern of the top two branches of the trigeminal nerve. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been getting twinges in my left jaw, radiating into my ear, upper and lower jaw. It comes and goes, but is gradually getting more persistent. It’s not as far as a pain as such but starting to get uncomfortable. I was hoping it was just a side effect of a cold/virus but I am terrified that this is a precursor to trigeminal neuralgia… I know no-one can give me definite answers and I doubt anyone can reassure me all that much, but has anyone ever had similar symptoms or issues around their trigeminal nerve without going on to develop full blown TN please? Clutching at straws for any potential comfort going please (or advice, if any).
