Still searching for that magical cure
There is not much to update really. It has been almost a year since my last post. My neurologist told me at my last visit I had the atypical form of trigeminal neuralgia. Of course I immediately did lots of research. I am wondering if I actually have all 3 conditions or are some of the doctors wrong?? I am thinking of trying a new doctor but really just don't feel like seeing any! I have still been on Neurontin and I can tell it does help especially with the facial pain. I can tell when it wears off in between doses. I am trying something new called kratom, which is herbal. It hasn't seemed to do anything so far. I will continue to experiment. I am also considering trying an essential oil blend recommended to me by someone who has chronic migraines also. I can still tell the stim does still help just not as well as when it was new. I just need to fill my toolbox with different things. Finding the perfect combination is the hardest part though.
