Raeder paratrigeminal syndrome (ie, paratrigeminal neuralgia) is characterized by severe, unilateral facial pain and headache in the distribution of the ophthalmic division of the trigeminal nerve in combination with ipsilateral oculosympathetic palsy or Horner syndrome.
I have a friend who is suffering from this as a result of Traumatic Brain Injury - I'm wondering if any of you are familiar with it and/or know of any online resources that might be available.
In particular, she is looking for a neurologist in east-central Florida who can help with Lyrica, Nerotin, those kinds of meds for nerve pain. (The neuro she just saw had the nerve to tell her that her pain was from childhood abuse and she just needed a shrink!!!)
Thanks for your help!
