Default Trigeminal neuralgia

Has anyone had experience with this or treating it? Any non-medication or non-surgery methods that provided relief (I don't have insurance)?

how do you know you have it without going to a doctor? my recollection from school is that it's a tricky diagnosis and that it's mindnumbingly painful, crippling even.

Look to find someone who can, in a non-conventional manner, check out the TMJ (jaw) joint. This could be a holistic dentist, a chiropractor, an osteopath, etc. Make sure they have experience with this previously.
