Alternative Treatment for TN


Hi everyone.I was diagnosed with Type 1 TN July of 12. The attacks are both the lightning bolts and also like I have a mouth full of stinging hornets. The attacks last hours at a time and I cannot smile, swallow or eat/drink anything until they subside and then I use extreme caution as they will trigger again.

Has anyone has good results with either acupressure or acupuncture for their TN? Write back soon please. Thanks.

My sister had the decompression surgery and it worked very well for her. You might check with the facial pain assoc to see if they have any approved doctors in your area.
