Thanks. I feel ok myself. I am currently trying to determine if what I have is Trigeminal Neuralgia or not. I'm also dealing with other health issues and that's why I am not quick to respond to people on here. I appreciate any support, as I am sure you do. I just take things one day at a time.

He's reduced the carbamazepine to just 100mg a day to see if that helps with the side effects but I dont see any point in taking it at all because it doesnt get rid of the pain, just makes me drowsy. He doesnt know what could be causing the other symptoms ive been getting but said to reduce the meds to see if thats what is causing all these symptoms.
