Firstly have not been on here for about 12 months so hello all
As I am sure there are many others of you that along side MS, suffer with this awful TN, I am really struggling at the moment. I am currently taking carbamazepine which I cannot increase to more than 4 tablets per day because if I do then my white blood cells drop really low, but 4 tablets a day do not work effectively, the doctors have no idea what else to do as these apparently are the best tablets for this condition! As sufferers know the pain is unbearable.
How do others cope? I am really really at my whits end and fed up with crying all the time with the pain.
Have any of you had the operation or the injection for this, if so how was it
Many thanks to you all
