Husband has SP and more recently suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia. He started with Carbamazapine, then because of the side effects started Oxymazapine. However neither are now effective and he is at hits wits end and has had constant head pain for 5 days. He has had frequent headaches in the past and used to take Anadin extra which seemed to help, but not at the minute. He thinks his current head pain is caused by the neuralgia which is currently very active.
The consultant at the local pain clinic (who he saw some time ago) said he could take the Anadin extra as it would not cause headaches, which can happen if you take too many of certain painkillers on a regular basis. This is not what a consultant at the London Neuro hospital said, but there you are.
A message is out for the MS nurse to phone but thought I would see what anyone else thought.
So question: Advice on managing on Trigeminal Neuralgia?
Thanks in advance.
