Default Trigeminal Neuralgia

Does anyone know of ANYTHING that will help Trigeminal Neuralgia pain. I've had this torture for 5.5 years now, and no medicines have worked. I need help from somewhere.

Thanks ,
hrly

This is not something that can be helped via a discussion forum,sorry

There are many many homeopathic remedies that are possible,the only way to find out what will work for you a full casetaking needs to be done,seek counsil from a trained classical homeopath,have them take your case.
here is a directory of homeopaths in the USA,best of luck,let us know your progress after you have been on the remedies a while.

Trigeminal neuralgia is an excruciatingly painful complaint - homeopathic treatment can bring immense relief. I agree with Gina, that your best possible course of action is to find a reputable local homeopath for individualised treatment. You should certainly NOT attempt to self-prescribe for this condition.

Mag-Phos will often act as a superficial painkiller in trigeminal neuralgia - however it is unlikely to reduce the frequency or intensity of the attacks. For acute pain, three pills of the 200th potency are dissolved in water and sipped every two minutes, up to a maximum of ten sips.

Before any other medicines can be considered, you will need to provide us with further information:

Are you more affected by heat or cold in general?
Is the pain confined to the face. Where else does it go?
Which side of the face is most affected?
Please describe the pain (focus of the pain - extending/ radiating to where, particular sensation of the pain - e.g. burning, throbbing, shooting, stabbing, etc.).

Is the complaint -

Worse by draughts of air or cool breezes?
Worse after getting wet, dampness, rainy whether, washing the face?
Better or worse for cold or warm applications?
Better for pressure or massage?
Are there any other triggers or modifying factors?

Are the attacks accompanied by any other symptoms, e.g. headache, sinus problems, itching skin?

My pain is not the stabbing pain. It's constant just about every day. It burns, tingles and pain is almost unbearable. I'be been to neurologist, neurosurgeons, rheumatologist, chiro. I've had 2 mri's and brain scan also. I've taken most of the medicines that they give to people who have seizures. I even question if I am getting the right diagnosis. I'm not aware of any homeopathy in my area. I live in Kings Mountain, NC. The pain is getting unbearable and really understand why they call this the suicide diesease. I also have some of the same sensations in my chest which no one can explain, and my skin actually hurts too, and no one can explain that either---------skin has feeling of being stuck by 1000's of needles. I have been on the verge of tears today.
Thanks for any help.

Thank you for the information. Please read the questions in my previous post again - you will need to answer each one. Most importantly, we need to know the modifying factors - what makes the pain better or worse? If you are not sure, try a few things out - put some ice on your face, or a hot water bottle. Also are you someone who is generally more affected by heat or cold? Do you prefer hot or cold weather - which makes you most uncomfortable? How has the weather been recently in your part of the world? Please make sure you answer all of the questions that I have asked you - consider it essential information. Mag Phos 200c in water is said to give much relief from the acute pains of trigeminal neuralgia.

Kindest Regards
Sim

Humid hot weather is bad but so is cold, nothing in particular seems to trigger it as i am almost always in pain, 7 days a week. The only time it doesn't hurt is when i sleep and i have to take something to sleep at night. I hope this answers your questions, i've tried to answer them all. The pain just hardly ever stops; if i have a good day at all it seems to come back worse.

Thanks again
hrly

Thank you, but you still haven't answered even half of my questions - e.g. what side is it? Homeopaths need symptoms! Why don't you write out each question and type your answer underneath - even if it's 'don't know'? When you have answered them all, I will probably have some more questions for you!

Is the pain of constant intensity all of the time? What aggravates (makes worse) or ameliorates (makes better) the pain?

I'm sorry i've missed some of your questions----------
cold or very hot both affect the pain
pain is on right side of face---same sensation in my chest
pain is burning, tingling, pain
worse by cool breezes, even hurts top of head when wind blows or a/c on it
rain and dampness do see m to affect it somewhat
cold or warm compresses make burning worse
pressure or massage-------don't know
no one thing in particular seems to worsen in, like i said it hurts 97% of the time and yes some days worse than others.
Please let me know if i missed anything, and ty for your time. I do appreciate it.
I don't know of any homeopathy in this area, i have searched before.

Thank you - very good.

1. Is the pain better or worse at any regular time in a 24hr period?

2. Are YOU more sensitive to heat or cold? e.g. who is the first to put the heating on in your house? Do you get hot and bothered in hot weather - or do you find it hard to keep warm in cold weather? If you cannot think either way, which way would you lean? This is important so please think about it carefully!

3. Do you always wear a hat or scarf in cool or breezy weather? Please be specific about this - whether you do or don't and why.

4. Do you wake up and feel pain every morning? If you do not, when does the pain start?

5. Please describe the pain specifically in terms of location (where is the nucleus of the pain) and extension - how far does it radiate or what is it's pathway?

Many thanks

face hurts worse after I've been awake a few hours, I'm about as sensitive to real hot as I am to real cold. I don't wear hat or scarf. I am the first to turn on heat. As weather cools, I am ALWAYS cold. Pain is in right side of face from eye down to almost bottom of right side, and inside mouth hurts also.
I am currently taking Trileptal 300 mg. twice a day. But it doesn't seem to help either.
