Since being dx’d with TN six weeks ago, CJ is doing much better! He got up to 800 mg of tegretol, and the side effects were way too severe so he’s been back down to 600mg ever since, and doing well. He has put on some weight, which I hear is common, but he needs new pants, LOL! And he’s tired all the time, and sweats a LOT!
I am also new to this, but I am pleased that he is doing so well! So he’s been able to teach with no problems so far? (He’s having his one month check up and I FINALLY got in to see the neurologist yesterday! That comes from living in a rural area and not in the Cities I guess.)
