Another newbie here in General Board Posted February 17, 2012 Thanks, CHfather, for that wealth of info! No, my PCP didn't prescribe anything for TNÂ—in fact, he seemed reluctant to do so. He suggested I keep a journal of my supposed TN attacks/circumstances/triggers, etc., as he did for periodic bouts of vertigo in recent months, which seemed to have stopped as of this month (of course, that brings me to another questionÂ—whether any CH sufferers have also had problems with vertigo). He did mention antiseizure meds as a possibility for the future, though, if the TN was bad enough. As a result of the vertigo I was experiencing, my PCP ordered a CAT scan of my sinuses, and there was no sign of sinusitis/inflammationÂ—which I had long guessed to be the culprit in my headaches as well as the vertigo. I will schedule another (sooner) appt. with my PCP, and discuss headache specialists, oxygen treatment, etc. Now that I have an inkling that these headaches are actually CH, I don't think I want to wait until my next scheduled apptÂ—in May. In the meantime I think I will try the licorice root, as I stand nothing to lose from it, it's affordable, etc.; it has worked very well for the friend who referred me here. Thanks again! B.
