Re: Any advise on meds for TN that have worked for you?
Lyrica and gabapentin are both painkillers...they essentially ONLY numb the pain, and dont necessarily do anything to repair the damage..
TN happens because of damage to the nerves or the sheath covering the nerve, thus expoosing the nerve. PAinkillers will only temporarily numb the pain, and you will have to keep taking em until one day you get fed up and are reeled in to surgery.
I suffered with TN for 8 long years...every doctor and neurologist kept giving me larger and larger doses of painkillers (cos after a while your body starts developing resistance). Then I looked into alaternative medicine, particularly Ayurveda.
I was prescried this herbal combination called Niargim, by an Ayurvedic doctor, and at first i was kind of skeptical that it would even work...Bt i was Amaazed at how effective it was!!
These herbs not only relieve pain, buthelp repair your damaged nerves, nding your condition once and for all. You can even get a prescription for these, online, and theyre not all that expensive. Definitely worth a try..
