I am going to be brief as there are experiences that almost all of you had: going from doctor to doctor, from clinic to clinic to see faces staring at me with unbelieving expression. It took me five years before a doctor said that the symptoms are giving an indication of Atypical TN. Then three 'operations' were made: with a needle going through my cheek until the lower trigeminal nerve, trying to heat it up and paralyzing it somewhat. Each time hotter. Result: nop, nada, zero comma zero! I take much medication only at night. After some experiences with different medication, I have now a situation whereby my pain is severe the first time that I wake up and gradually diminishes until the pain it noting more that a pression. This takes four times getting up, waiting half an hour and going to bed again. When I am up, the pain goed away and in the daytime I am not having TN-pains.
Also I would like to finsdd out how many experiences there are with the PainShield device. I found onlu one with very good experienes. The device is on the market since three yaers; Therefore I am surprised that thare are not more comments on it. The price is now € 550 (Euros).
Maenwhile, kind regards to everyone.
I am sure to be on the right (virtual) place...
