I had MVD surgery in September of 2017 after having gamma knife surgery in December of 2016 which failed. It has been 7 months and I am beginning to get pain back on both my right and left side infrequently. The problem that I am having is that my entire right side of my face my right side of my nose my right side of my upper lip the right side of my lower left the right side of my chin the right side and tip of my tongue have tingling and numbness like a thousand ants we're crawling on it. I am so desperate that I am having thoughts of harming myself. I don't know what to do I feel hopeless. This is happening 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The only relief I get is when I asked sleep. I am on 1800 mg of Gabapentin. Will this ever go away or is this the way my life is going to be? I have TN pain in my lower jaw the bridge of my nose where I can't wear my glasses shooting pains in my temple area and numbness around my eye as well. I simply cannot take this anymore. Has anyone else been in my position and what in the world can one do?
