My mother had been suffering the excruciating trigeminal neuralgia (TN) attacks for almost 30 years. She was given painkillers/steroids which help only a temporarily relief of her pain. She had also tried many traditional medications without much success. It was only recently that she was introduced the below natural remedy that we see vast improvement in alleviating her pain.
2 cups of water
1 average size of White Radish (White Carrot)
Slices of fresh Ginger (optional)
1. Wash the white radish, cut into smaller pieces
2. Add 2 cups of water to ceramic pot, close the lid, put to boil
3. Switch off when liquid content reduced from 2 cupful to 1 cup.
4. Drink the liquid between dinner time 7pm to 8pm only
Note : For those elderly who experience discomfort due to radish being a cooling vegie, ginger slices can then be added in step 2.
My mother has seen major improvement after only few attempt, she can now comfortably chew on almond nuts too which she never did for a long time. We like to give thanks and hope by the sharing of this wonderful recipe, many others could benefit from this horrible experiences.
I'm back, still dealing w/ sporadic aching / stabbing, get's easier as time goes on ( 4th. year now ), compared to pain after a Grand Mal Seizure, this is a " walk in the park ", mind over matter ( simply pay it no mind and it won't matter ). Turns out increasing B12 daily dosage from 400mg to 1000mg was the culprit, I had surmised such after surfing various sites pertaining to B12 and in some cases side effects.
After seeing Dermatologist, her referral was that of a " Pain Specialist " ( more appt.'s $$ ) I've been dealing w/ idiopathic left temporal lobe Epilepsy way too long to know what comes after referral and original consultation from one " Specialist " to another, what else but more " follow up's & test's " .
I walked that road over 15 years ago after deciding to try elective brain surgery @ Yale Univ. New Haven, been having countless seizures, both complex partial along w/ grand mal ( " slammers " ) & amnesia, whatever is " done is done " logic alone leads one to believe there's no fixin' this but the Nice Cold Gel Pak sure does suffice at times, especially now as I type.
Only managed to make Phase 3 @ Yale ( 5 interior electrodes ) shortly after Triple ByPass making me no longer an eligible candidate for partial lobotomy, might very well have been to my benefit, can't cry over spilt milk.
Reason for writing today is : DO NOT use excess B12 ( in my case anyway 400 to 1000 ) today after cutting 1000 pill into half, the chronic stabbing burn above eye along w/ forehead and side just above ear is every bit apprx. 90% LESS, leaving a slight easily tolerable one on top towards the rear of skull.
If this helps one persons attempt in pain reduction my time won't be wasted, nor will theirs.
Good Luck ........ careful w/ excess B12, see Primary first or have a blood test to know it's dissolution factor / half life.
I have dealt with TN for about 4 years. This is the regimen that I followed for relief. B-Complex, Magnesium Citrate, Lecithin. Take Daily.
Stop all caffeine and sugar as it aggravates/excites the nerves.
It has been 18 months since the last time it fired and that was a relatively calm period. A year prior to that which caused me to find solutions.
When I fires, I would use Capsaicin cream(high potency strength from Walgreens) on my face. I applied it every four hours and relieve comes over time/use. My face would get red but I don't care. Another critical thing that I did was to use a TENS unit electrical stimulation on my face. I would place the simulators, one on my left temple and one on left cheek by my mouth. This would help dissuade the trigeminal nerve from firing as much.
The final key that I learned was to poke my lower jaw out. This would break the electrical connection and stop the firing of that nerve.
Hope this helps!!!
When I was 17 I was involved in a car crash and suffered head injuries, (fractured scull, broken nose and lots of stitches).
After recovering, a few months later I started getting very bad head pains in one side of my face, teeth, ear, eye, one tonsil, cheek bone and one side of my scull all at the same time although each pain is different..
I think a good description of a couple of the pains is the lights of a pinball machine going round your teeth, and a bolt that they use to kill cows going into your temple..
Mine always came on at night, after being in bed asleep for about two hours. So I always got up alone as my mum, dad and family were in bed. I never told anybody, and just assumed I must have a brain tumor.
It was very hard to get rid of the pain as none of the pain killers touched it, so I used to put thick rubber gloves on (so i could use really hot water) and bath it. Then I had a better idea, I put the gas fire on and sat in front of that with my head close to the bars.
I had this problem for about 7 years before I ever knew what it was. Then one day i was looking through a very old 'pocket doctor' book about 1900s, that my mum had no doubt got from a jumble sale, and there it was, all my symptoms in black and white, i could hardly believe it, even down to one nostril and one eye running.
I had never heard of neuralgia before, but I was glad I had a name for it. I still had neuralgia on and off for the next twenty years, the wind, the rain or just a whisp on my face would cause it, and also stress and worry.
When I was 43 years old i had a particular stressful time, I nursed my father through lung cancer, then found out my niece was taking heroine and crack cocaine all this while running a business on my own. So I got neuralgia every day, i was like a walking zombie!
I had a brain wave and decided to see an acupuncture practitioner, the best decision I ever made. I had five sessions using traditional chinese five point acupuncture. (where your five pulses are taken and read) on each visit.
Then six months ago I bought some DMSO to treat my dog and thought it would also be a good idea to treat myself for a tooth abscess, low and behold it immediately brought back the neuralgia, after being free from it for about fifteen years I was shocked! but this time i knew what to do, I made an appointment with my doctor because these days you can get acupuncture free on the national health, not five point but it still worked for me. No more neuralgia, gone!
I'm really sorry I can't use dmso because it is absolutely brilliant and soon sorted my tooth out, very powerful and works really fast..
So my answer to anyone suffering from neuragia is acupuncture. I was told it is inflammation of the neuralgic nerve.
Best wishes, Janet..
