How to live with the World’s Most Painful Disease – Trigeminal Neuralgia(TN)?
If you’re on this page, it is most likely that you or your loved one is suffering from the ordeal of Trigeminal neuralgia, which is likened to a trip to hell and back. The medical fraternity too state that there is no pain as severe as the one experienced by a TN patient. However, you don’t have to feel that this is the end of your life because with growing research and understanding of this ailment, doctors are able to suggest more unconventional ways of managing the pain and leading a more productive life. To make your life easier, we’ve compiled a list of things that you should incorporate in your daily regimen in order to lead a healthier and better life.
Basic Information on Trigeminal Neuralgia
When the largest nerve in your skull (the trigeminal nerve) gets damaged, compressed, or the protective myelin sheet that coats the nerve wears off, you experience facial neuralgia (nerve pain) as this nerve is used for eating, talking, and other facial functions. The pain is unbearable and differs in intensity, severity, and time. Also, the pain is usually on one side of the face.
Available Trigeminal Neuralgia Treatment Options
Conventional treatment modalities such as anticonvulsants like carbamazepine (Tegretol) are usually given along with antispasmodic muscle relaxants. However, patient reports and other investigations have shown that these medicines only work temporarily by subduing the symptoms and are not able to cure the condition. In fact, these very medicines give rise to other complications because of their toxic side effects. Surgery, which is considered as the next logical step when drugs fail to work is a risky affair and most patients either have a relapse or are left with surgical complications like infection and excessive bleeding.
TN is a rare disorder but the ones suffering need help and the absence of a cure makes it especially disheartening. Thus, we’ve compiled a list of alternative but nonetheless competent techniques that may help you be better equipped whilst dealing with TN pain.
- Proper Diagnosis
It is extremely necessary to consult a neurologist and getting tested, so that the condition can be addressed at the earliest
- Choosing the Right Therapy
Each patient is unique and some of you may be more sensitive to a particular drug than others. So, it is vital to understand, which therapy is going to work for you.
Conventional treatments for trigeminal neuralgia include anti-inflammatory drugs and pain killers, which provide temporary relief from the symptoms. They, however, don’t treat the actual root cause and thus a patient may go into remission for some time before the symptoms arise again.
On the other hand, growing research on natural ingredients has highlighted prominent herbs and homeopathic attenuations that have been clinically evaluated for their effects on protecting, repairing, rejuvenating, and optimizing nerve functions. These findings have opened new avenues for possibly seeking an effective trigeminal neuralgia treatment. These studies also add value to the regimens that have been followed by traditional medical practitioners for centuries.
