Strikes back after 5 year remission. Back on meds. How long until they take effect??? I’m having a rough time coping
What meds are you taking? Carbamazepine/Tegretol is the best for me. I’m so sorry I do know what you’re going through. I hope you get pain free soon.
Thank you. I am taking Trileptal. I took Tegretol previously and really took a cognitive hit :(.
I took trileptal, too. Takes about three weeks to get up to needed dose.
Oh dang :(. Good to know, though, thank you.
Apple we are really sorry for your pain. We all hope that you feel better soon. I myself am having a real upswing in pain . In addition to my usual tegretol I can add promethazine(not sure of spelling). It is also called finnegan, I believe. It’s given for nausea, and general pain control. Works for me, but it also makes me sleepy.
Has your doctor given you anything specifically for pain?
Thoughts and prayer your way.
Thank you it’s helpful that this community exists. I’m sorry for your upswing. I haven’t heard of those other medicines. Nothing else offered from the doc yet. I’m trying to stay positive but I have to admit that fear is creeping in again, I worry about the medicine not working but I’m reminding myself of what I learned here that maybe I just need to be patient…
Sorry for your facial pain coming back. I too was in remission for 5 years. I started having sensory issues and pain started to come back as well as dental pain.
Was put on gabapentin. I use l lLidocaine Ointment on my face to help with sensory. It’s all been helping. I have TN2 Trigeminal Neuropathic cause from dental work. Fear is real, this is a very difficult pain to deal with. I pray and try to only look as far as the head light of a car. If you look farther the thought of this pain daily can consume your every thought. Praying for healing for you and all the suffer of TN1 and TN2
Thank you for your answer and thoughts. I hope your pain recedes, and that another remission might be just past those headlights.
