Re: trigeminal neuralgia

Sorry you are suffering from that as it sounds very unpleasant.

Don't know if you have read the article below?

Re: trigeminal neuralgia

Of the meds referred to , gabapentin I would go to extreme lengths to avoid .. I found it a nastily seductive habit forming way to turn oneself into a full time afternoon tv watcher.

It was hard to come off , and a waste of time . It did work , but so do others.

Once again , best of.

Re: trigeminal neuralgia

My mum has had this for many years, sadly there does not seem to be a cure, she has had at least one operation but it has not cured or alleviated the pain. She is on constant medication which controls it as far as possible. The cold, wind, rain aggravates this complaint immensely, unfortunately it's 'something she has to live with'

Re: trigeminal neuralgia

So sorry to hear of your dilemma Chris - nothing worse than constant pain, especially when you know there's no relief in sight. Thinking of you and wishing you better. Hilary.
