My mother was diagnosed with TN over a month ago. She received treatment and is almost pain free after two weeks. She was treated at the lasermed centre in Myrtle Beach. They have been helping patients become pain and drug free from TN since 2006. She was in so much pain she wasn't eating, sleeping or drinking because the pain was unbearable. The treatment is non-invasive and I spoke to numerous patients in the clinic on a daily basis that were getting tremendous relief from the treatments. The laser is FDA approved and there are no short or long term side effects. If you are suffering with this disease you have nothing to lose, please they can offer you hope and I witnessed it with my own eyes. Don't suffer with this disease any longer than you have to. The medication they prescribe is horrible and the surgeries were not an option for us.
