HI, I have posted on this forum before, i have TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA, a very very painful illness, and that is what i suppose it is an illness. As i have said it started many years ago with pains in the right side of my face, thinking it was tooth ache i many treatments at the dentist.When this did not work i had the nerve cut on the inside of my mouth on the upper jaw. Brilliant this worked .... for a while...... Another op again this worked for a while then went for a third op but this time he couldnot touch my face to give the numbing injection. With this i went to see the Neuralagist FANTASTIC i was told what illness i had. I was told to take Tegretol 400mg and Neurontin 600mg FANTASTIC no pain. I could eat talk clean my teeth i was a new person !!!!!. Then the pain came back after about 8 or 9 months. So i upped the dosage and the pain went after about 2 weeks i lowered the dosage to what i was on before great. 4 months later i am at the stage i am now. pain on the whole side of my face and going up the right side of my head just behind my ear, I find it difficult to eat and talk. It is painful to brush or comb my hair.
The Doctor did say to me that if the tablets did not work then i would need an operation, this being on my brain!!!!!!!. Does ANY ONE know anything about this op. I have been told that it could leave me deaf, blind or not even come out of the op atall ??????? PLEASE can any one give me any info on this !!! ????
