Hello Louise, and welcome to Living With Facial Pain. I think you might be the first member I’ve seen on any of these communities that is from Scotland! I am sorry to hear that facial pain has been preventing you from training. It sounds like you did make a switch in your medication recently, though, so I hope that at least helps alleviate your symptoms a bit better. A lot of our members have also had to give up some of the things they enjoy doing as a result of their condition. I encourage you to start getting involved in our forum discussions and sharing your experiences. If you’d like some guidance on how to do so - the “Welcome” tab up top is a great place to start.
I’m also always here if you need any further advice!
