Whenever I lay down and go to sleep my TN pain becomes much worse. So bad to the point to where I have to get up. This pain always hurts but for some reason when I lay down it gets so much worse. It took me over an hour to fall asleep last night and when I finally did fall asleep it woke me up several times. Has this happened to anyone else? Is there anything I can do to ease the pain at night?

I sometimes get this problem and have found that sleeping in a more upright position helps. I prop myself up with a 'v' shaped pillow. Hope this helps.
