    Hi,

    Not heard that one before! I presume the jewellery in question is piercings (?) which does make sense, but necklaces, hmmmn, can't quite see how. Clip on earrings I can sort of see how that might aggravate the nerve and possibly trigger pain.

    Oh well, another thing to avoid, maybe, or live dangerously if you would rather!

    Well, on first glance that seems ridiculous. My first thought was "what the Neurologist thinks it will act like an antenna and bring down the lightening from the flying saucers on the moon?" Please tell me more though. Who said this, and did they say anything more on that subjec? Very strange thing to say to you.

      It was my chiropractor who said it. I must admit I thought the same thing about it acting like an antenna. But being in so much pain I was willing to try anything. The pain does feel like lightening, so when we've had storms I have thought could electric storms trigger nerve pain. But the medication has frazzled my brain, so some of my thoughts may be a bit Sci Fi! Lol 😝

      Many times my TN shocks went off as I was getting into bed. I was sure it was the electrical clock and iPad so moved them away from the bed.So no reading in bed from then on ,but,at least I had peace.

    Well, here's a funny thing- someone on a forum said that we should try Physio. I thought that was probably rubbish, but whatever- like you I am willing to try anything. Anyway, I went along and he was a bit rough. My neck was very sore after. He had been massaging down from my ears on both sides. The next two days the Tn was worse but then it stopped. and its stayed stopped from 15th April to the present day. I dont know how long it will last for me, but it really was worth a go So keep on trying things out, who knows, you may find something

      My sisters friend suffers from neuralgia in her head and finds sports massage helps hers. My chiropractor advised against sports massage, but all she does now is massage my back help me with my shoulders as they get so tense with the pain. Oh joy!

      See, now I'm imagining some buff chap on a sandy beach and me on a lounger.....................................................

      LOL, enough of that! Massage does make sense, more than not wearing jewellery!! Tense mind and body equals tense joints and muscles which will undoubtedly cause pinching of nerves or pressure on them. I'm going back to the image of a buff chap now, till the drugs kick in anyway!!

      Mental hugs to all.

    I tried Chiro too but it didnt do a lot for me . I tried Physio to see what it would do and it worked so maybe you should give it a go also. It's always worth a go to my way of thinking
