I don't want drugs....I want healing

I've tried every drug down the list of drugs to try for trigeminal nerve damage-they haven't exactly diagnosed me with TN, but they treat it pretty much the same way. Nothing works! I've had Botox for TN. What's next? I go to a pain clinic. He seems to be trying drugs to make me "feel" better, but none have. I don't just want to "feel" better. I want to "be" better! Any ideas?

MVD surgery is the best course for Type 1 TN if you can do it.Have you had a MRI?Noone here likes the drugs.Sometimes it's the only thing we have.

I have had an MRI. But that was of my cervical spine for my ocsypital pain & neck pain. The entire right side of my head, face, and neck feel like a burning, stabbing pain most of the time. The major problem with meds, is that I have a 2 year old I’m caring for! I need to be alert to take care of him.
