I am from South Africa and a week ago my dad has been having similar symptoms to what is described by Trigeminal Neurlagia. At first he went to the dentist then after x-rays, the dentist referred him to our GP who has dealt with patients with this. He was given amitriptyline as he had encephalitis when he was younger and he took Tegretol but was taken off it as the side effects were severe.
As this is new to us, and quite overwhelming I am trying to find out from others what there symptoms are and if anyone with Diabetes has had this.
He says the is always this constant dull pain, increasing and decreasing throughout the day but at nightime it is always unbearable and lasts longer than a few minutes, sometimes hours! It's not like the sharp pain described but everyone describes there pain differently.
Has anyone had anything similiar, where the is there all day and at night it is severe?
I would love to hear back from anyone, as like I said, my family is trying to figure this out.
