I really don’t get this.
I am on Cymbalta, Amitriptyline, Tegretol and use Lidocaine patches on my face and it still hurts so much.
I am adding in occasional pain killers and muscle relaxants.
How can I go on putting all those drugs into my body AND still live with this pain.
At one point last night I felt as though my head was in between a pair of cymbals. Both sides of my head were being hit. My temples were getting it. Then I got struck across my forehead every now and then. My teeth felt as if all the nerves were raw. I ate some mashed potato with cheese for dinner. It was warm, not too hot, but some went near the right side of my teeth. It hurt big time.
Today, the head pain has gone thankfully. But my right cheekbone hurts like I’ve been punched in the face. It’s just constant, from my cheekbone, right around my eye socket to the my temple. I feel like I have earache, but I know it’s just this Trigeminal Neuralgia. My teeth are bad. Two in particular......got that feeling of someone pulling them with pliers.
Plus the rib pain is still here. Just as bad, if not worse. The ultrasound scan was clear, so I know it’s nothing ‘inside’, but whatever is causing it is not nice.
I am so fed up with this.
Just give me one day of feeling normal.
Sorry for going on about it, just really needed to vent a bit.....
