Oh the pain of it all!

I have talked in several posts about trigeminal neuralgia and the fact that I suffer from it.  For some unknown reason it has picked today to rear its ugly head.  The nerves on the left side of my face hurt and burn.  It hurts to blink my left eye and the left side of my lip feels numb.

There isn’t much I can do for it.  I am preparing for my LDA treatment on the 15th of this month and have to be especially careful of anything that I take.  I have compounded Tylenol but am not supposed to be using it right now.   The only option right now is to heat up my bean bag and place it on my face to see if the heat will calm it down.

    • Thank you Sonda for your prayer. I have had TMJ issues before but for me this is much worse as every nerve in my face (left side only) is affected. I am going to sign off the computer and heat up that bean bag thing and see if the heat will calm it down.
