Looking for help

Hi everyone! I am new here. I am from south Louisiana and I am looking for a doctor to manage my TN. I had my first attack 9 weeks ago. I am miserable and am a nurse. Talking is sometimes a trigger. I am currently on 900mg of gabapentin and only having mild relief. I also initially had a root canal thinking it was a tooth issue and now have to go back for my crown work which I am extremely anxious about.

What I am looking for is support and some suggestions on which surgical options and meds worked for you (I have already tried tegretol)for the longest as I am only 27 :(. Also if anyone on here is from south Louisiana please reccomended a doctor.

Thank you so much in advance,

I am from south Louisiana. My doctor is Dr. Roger Smith at Ochsner.
