I have been suffering badly with trigeminal neuralgia since August and am currently taking 600mg daily of pregabalin and 20mg amitryptilene daily with no let up (I also tried duloxetine which didn’t agree with me). I have also been on Tecfidera for 10 weeks.
My question is, has anyone tried complimentary therapies such as reflexology to help with pain? I’m at my wits ends and will try anything. My consultant is referring me to a neurosurgeon to discuss compressing the nerve, but who knows how long that will take.
Any advice will be greatly received.
