Trigeminal neuralgia

It has been one of those days! Trigeminal neuralgia or as some call it the suicide disease has hit once again. It has been described as among the most painful conditions known to mankind and I'm here to tell you I agree. The only relief I have found since about 4am this morning is ice. Can you say frozen cheek...beats suffering. I haven't had pain like this for over two years. The only good part of it the only thing I can tolerate eating is ice cream. I think all of this may have been triggered by a cold so tomorrow I'm off to the doc to at least get some meds once again for this problem. I don't have seizures but they do put me on seizure meds for it and I must say in the past it has helped...so keeping my fingers, toes, and eyes crossed that once again it will do the trick. Well got to go fill up my cup with ice once again!

Happy Trails....Ginger

That sounds so bad. Hope you feel better soon. I have a friend with that problem, and I've seen what she goes through.

ouch Ginger. I've never had that, and don't want it, but know some people that have really suffered from it. I hope you get some relief tomorrow from the doc. Take care of yourself.

How awful Ginger.
I hope that you can get some meds to tame it down or keep it a bay. There is nothing worse than being in nonstop pain that just won't go away.

I am so sorry to hear you are plagued with this! I have it also and it comes and goes at will. I had surgery on my face and that caused mine and now I just take the meds and it stays calmed down for the most part. Thinking about you!
