Well here continues the battle to speak to some one that will help! My symptoms of TN and now jaw spasms started over 2 weeks ago. Emailed neuro secretary to say I was struggling and is there a possibility to see the neuro or someone. She read my email yesterday- no answer. I have the old secretary's number (this one is temping as her maternity cover) so I tried calling her on that as most liekly she would be sat where the old secretary was - still no response. You'd think sending a curtousy email or call to say this is what's happening or I'm waiting to speak to.... but nothing!
It's so frustrating as I work for the NHS but not only that I work in the same trust. I am sorely tempted to make a complaint through pals - don't care if I work in the trust it's completely attrocious! Having to eat soft food as I my jaw is so tight it kills and I'm in pain if I talk too much laugh or smile which is quite difficult as my natural habit is to smile to reassure my patients and make them comfortable.
Have a GP review next tuesday but will try and see if they can see me as an urgent if I'm really struggling before the end of the week. It's difficult taking time off with the current job climate - we've already had one of our secretaries removed from post so the last thing I want to do is take lots of days off even though my line manager is supportive but I'll have to if it gets worse.
Only positive thing is with the amount of food I'm eating I'm sure to loose the tiny tummy buldge I have!
ps: I also realised I keep doing spoonerisms since the last week, wet diaper becomes bet wiaper and it gets a little embarassing in front of colleagues when you've done it quiet a few times.
