Hi Mark,

I’ve suffered with Tridgeminal Neuralgia previously and have recently gone through a bad time with a similar Facial Neuralgia, it was awful and extremely painful so I totally sympathize with you.

I’ve not experienced the Balloon Compression so I’m unable to give you any advice, sorry but I’m sure that another member of the forum might be able to help.

Hope it all goes well for you :slight_smile:

Hi I had TN for a period not had it touch wood for several years holding breath.

My friend in the states had it terrible really bad and had that procedure a few years ago now and is a new man.

Hi Crazy Chick,

Unfortunately, I think that a number of us have suffered with TN but this sounds very positive if your friend has had the Balloon Compression procedure done and it’s been successful for him.

Hopefully this will be successful for Smacksblue too :slight_smile:
