The Cure for T N

Posted , 6 users are following.

I have been without any pain now for 2 months, I am almost 70 this year and too old for playing pranks, this is the lead up too my cure, like you people I have suffered for 4 years, after spending nearly all my pension on cannabis to make the oil too no avail, and high end tablets, I went to the doctors, morphine and pregabalin that did not work either, onto the specialist he gave me amitriptilin to go with the pregabalin all that done was make me collapse as I had a glass of sherry, boy that hurt as my legs crumpled beneath me in a split second landing on the base of of my spine and whacking my head I have tiled floors here back to the specialist he gave me tegretol, waste of time, back to the doctors to give me back the pregabalin and the amitriiptilin as the weeks went by and juggling them around again to no avail, so one night I took all 3 tablets and woke up with no pain at all right through the day until 8 pm when I felt some small pain but no electric shocks I waited until midnight and took all 3 again morning came no pain I felt great until late evening when the little jibes started once more, off to the pharmacy once more to by high end pain killers for the day pain nothing only vomiting, so I looked at the tablets that I had, so after the night time  tablets 12 hours later I took 1 pegabalin and 1 tegretol, feeling pretty good now, I can go out even if there is a gale blowing it wont hurt, most important of all if you drink alcohol take your 3 tablets no later than 15 mins before bed or what happened to me will happen to you, also make sure you see your doctor before you take them, if this cures you please leave a donation what you can afford to recoup some of my pension have a back to normal life and bless you all,    sort code  11 03 20,  acc 01718861, Halifax england

    I'm happy for you that something is working! I've had mediocre benefit from the doses of amitriptyline I can tolerate without side effects of significant dry mouth & extreme memory loss (like forget what I was talking about in the middle of a conversation). But full spectrum hemp extract/tincture with high concentrations of cannabidiol [CBD] (and <.3% THC) have been a life changer for me.  It has enabled me to cut from 9 down to 4 amitrips/day @ 25mg/ea. The really good extracts (150+ mg/mL) are not cheap, I'll give you that, but worth every penny in my opinion. Not sure how long ago you tried it, but the products have come a long way in just the last 12-18 months; maybe worth another shot? But if what you've got now is working, sounds like you're on the right track.  Here's to feeling better... Cheers!

    Hi There,

    I'm really glad that you're feeling much better and hope that your remedy has lasting results for you. We all seem to be so different in the way we find some relief. Personally, having taken all the medication you suggest over 25 years. I find the only thing that still touches me is Tegretol..  Medications such as Gabapentin, Pregabolin, Amytriptilin etc had no effect whatsoever, with me so I'm stuck with a high dosage of the old treatment, Tegretol which was first metered out all those years. Painkillers and morphine were a waste of time. My neurosurgeon tells me that the pain takes a different path to other conditions which are painful.. So here's hoping you have a really lasting remmission. As I said , whatever works for you, although do be careful with the 'juggling'. Good Luck.!

    Unfortunately Tegretol makes me so sick, I can not function.  I vomit, the room spins and I lose my balance.  Lyrica has little effect, but acts as a mood elevator.  I've suffered with TN for nearly 30 years and just want out at this point.
