Management of Atypical Trigeminal Neuralgia by Botox

Posted , 4 users are following.

I am interested to know if anyone has tried this novel approach. As an idea it suddenly seemedd so obvious and on using google I found many recent articles supporting a dramatic pain reduction, reduction in drug requirements, and in some cases leading to long term drug free release from symtoms of pain. 

Yet I find no mention here....

      Dentist.. Hi smile

      Tell me more about the onset of your symptoms, I'm interested in a correlation involving root canal work or wisdom tooth extraction. 

      several years ago to try botox as a solution is remarkably pioneering!

      Where did he inject it precisely?

      This is an awful situation, unspeakable really. Please can you tell me if you have had root canal work or wisdom tooth extraction in the 1 or 2 years leading up to these painful symptoms. 

      Is there a point at which you can identify a beginning to this?

      Keep hope alive x
