I have suffered with migraines for many years & was placed on prophylactic meds-Cymbalta & Propranolol. About 3 months ago I developed Trigeminal Neuritis on my R side. I have to say it was the most painful affliction I ever experienced, even worse than the 2 spinal fusions I underwent! I was placed on Trileptal & am up to 600mg 2x/day, as well as continuing with Cymbalta & Propranolol. The issue I have been experiencing is sweating from my face, neck & head & feeling extremely hot. I'm 43 & don't think I am experiencing menopause as this started around the time of the TN. It's so uncomfortable & very embarrassing. I'm a nurse & often get very weird looks & comments about my dripping hair.
Should I ask my Neurologist about switching medications? I'm at a loss & so embarrassed by this.
