I am new to the sight and have spoken with a couple of people already. Is nice to chat with people who understand what you are going throught. I have ATN (Atypical Trigeminal Neuralgia) from shingles in the upper right portion of my face. My doctor just suggested the Boston Scientific Stimulator, anyone tried it? I have only seen information on it for the back. I currently take the following meds: Cymbalta, Topamax, Vicodin and MS Cotin and would love to reduce them if possible. Every 6 months (can only have it done that often) I have done the Radiofrequency Ablation, and then regular blocks done monthly as needed when it wears off. I would also entertain any suggestions on any other medicines that would help reduce the pain or that have worked for others.
Look forward to hearing from you!
