Hi have been to doctors this morning with severe stabbing face pain on the right hand side! This is after visit to dentist on Tuesday as i was convinced it was my teeth! The pain was unbearable over the counter pain killers didn't touch it!
Doctor is treating me for shingles and TN!
200mg per day of carbamazepine for TN and Aciclovir in case it's shingles! I have been looking for rash around face in case it might be shingles, no rash but have broken out in coldsores around my lips which i get if run down!
I am just looking for any advice because doing my researsh both these conditions seem very painful and reoccur! and I just hope that with this medication i will start to feel better?
So i am back in bed and feeling quite down and a bit scared as i am also prone to depression! and it would be really helpful to hear any similar stories to mine? Doctor wasn't very helpful really made me feel as if i was wasting her time!
