MRI Revelations: When TN Meets the Bulging Disc Brigade

October 15th, 2023:

Ding, ding, ding! The moment I’d been eagerly awaiting finally arrived – the Cervical MRI results are in. As I tear open the digital envelope to unravel the findings, there’s a twist in the tale. No news on the Trigeminal Neuralgia front.

However, what I do discover is a troop of four bulging discs in my cervical region. If you’re thinking, “Holy smokes, Batman!” right about now, you’re not alone. But my reaction was a bit more nonchalant – “Yea, it figures. I knew I had neck issues.”

The truth is, my neck has been a long-standing companion on this journey. I’ve known it like an old friend, or perhaps a friendly frenemy. It’s been an issue I’ve contended with for years, and I’ve got a stash of tricks up my sleeve to keep the pain at bay – tricks that I put into practice every single day.

So, here’s the deal. The neck’s been on the scene for quite a while, and it’ll probably hang around for some time more. But as for the Trigeminal Neuralgia, that’s my current nemesis, the one I’ve set my sights on. The neck, well, maybe one day I’ll pay a visit to an orthopedic expert. For now, though, I’ve got bigger fish to fry, and it’s time to turn my attention back to the business of dealing with TN.

The journey continues, and each revelation brings me one step closer to understanding this complex condition. TN, you may have met your match!
