I was just wondering if anyone here has trigeminal neuralgia. I know it's not directly linked to fibro, but I thought I'd ask it here all the same. If you do, what have you done for it? How has it affected your fibro as well? Tips/advice?

Thanks!

I have trigeminal neuralgia and it is the worst pain I have ever had in my life.  I haven't had a bout with it for a while, thank heaven.  When it flares up I only eat things that are soft, no chewing, and then only when I'm really hungry.  I apply hot and cold packs alternately and take muscle relaxers.  As far as how it affects my fibro in general, anything that hurts that much just seems to make everything else hurt more too.

Hope this helps.

I agree completely with it being the worst pain ever! It was a few weeks of pure misery, I was having it every night, and NOTHING would help the pain. I started Lyrica and it helped some. What really helped though was getting my wisdom teeth out, apparently they were pushing on the nerve or something. I still have bouts every now and again, but thankfully not as bad. Thanks for the help and advice Gamma!
