My mother aged 46 years has seen been suffering from Trigemminal Neuralagia from past 3 and a half years. But her disease could only be detected after 9 months. She has been take various forms of tregetol medicine and has also gone to PGI Chandigarh for the same but every time she goes there the doctor only increases the dose of the medicine (the doctors were good there) but no permanent cure has been found. MRIs have been done for this but they have not shown any irregularity.
Now with time her episodes of TN are also increasing and so is the pain associated with it. The pain now stays there for a longer duration. The medicines she is taking keeps her drowsy through out the day.
Alcohol Injections have also been administered on her by the specialised anesthesia person atleast thrice but this time the injection has given her intense pain and it is almost 16 days now that the injection has been administered but only she was well only for 4-5 days in between and from past 5 days she is suffering from the pain, the medicines have become her extremely drowsy, her fore head also stays cold due to sweating, she has become dehydrated and thus the overall condition is bad.
