all night long...

I was up for the entire night again. I am so tired but cannot sleep this facial curse is getting more intense every day. I lie down but cannot sleep. the pain is excruciating! I am at the point where I want to take people out then myself because I am so miserable.

If I do not get some help soon I am going to be crazy! All day and all night pain. seems as if it never stops, which actually it only stops for a few seconds to minutes and that is not long at all.

Oh well I am at the point of total exhaustion and once again I'm going to try to catch a nap. Maybe I am tired enough that the pain doesn't stop me. I do have a clean house though. LOL! and my husband got a really nice breakfast this morning.

Hope no one ever has to endure this ****, oh except for this one person, no two persons that I really do not like at all. Maybe they can have my share LOL!

Yes! it does say that accupuncture has helped many patients and my PCP does accupunture on Wednesdays at the pain management clinic. I may check into it but I want to see this other surgeon first to see what he says. My appointment is Friday but I am going to spend the night again.

If he doesn't think I have MS he will probably do the MVD. I have tried absolutely every drug known to man but attacks are getting worse and more frequent with very little relief time. I really hate this ****.

No, carbamazepine is Tegretol.  Sorry.  No more ideas.

Did you look at the fpa website?

That is triliptal isn't it I have tried that and maxed out. It helped at 1st then pain increased I had that with tegretol and same thing happened. I have also tried neurotin and dilantin.

Last night I took a valium to finally knock me out. I was up and down last night but got good sleep at the end.

Why can't your doctor just try the carbamazepine?  How you approached him about it?  Its use in TN is so well established.  And it is such a well-known drum and generally very well tolerated.  Did you look at the site fpa-support.org?

I have someone I would nominate for any symptoms we would like to give away.

I hope you have found some relief from your pain. I had lightening bolt pain the other night behind my left eye for only 20 seconds and cannot fathom having it any longer than that. It was excruciating. I feel so bad that you are going through this. Shelly is right and that you should let your Doctor know if this is not getting any better. I pray that you get some relief soon.

Too bad you couldn't just give this to the ones you don't like.lol

Hey Girl,

I'm so sorry about this pain.  Did you finally conk out or what? Can you call one of the Drs to let them know it's worse?  I wish I had advise on this one, really I do.  Just wish you'd get a break w/it.

LOL, on the sharing it w/the enemy....
