Trigeminal Neuralgia - Too Much Information

After things being quiet for so long, the pain has picked up of late.  I had two bad episodes - one last week on vacation as I was getting caught up on sleep, and one yesterday that lasted nearly the entire waking day.  In trying to get caught up from vacation I'm finding again that I'm burning the candle at both ends, and it is getting triggered. 

Yesterday, in particular, was really bad.  While major stabs were few, the constant pain was something I had not experienced for a long time.  I ended up telling my team what was going on with me as part of my update meeting as I'm sure people could tell that there was something wrong with me yesterday.  While it was a TMI moment, I felt it necessary to explain my random winces, sweats, and red left eye.

Looking forward to catching up on some sleep this weekend and putting this monster back in its cage.
