Hello my friends. I'm sorry that I've neglected my blog for almost an entire month! I had a terrible flare up of Trigeminal Neuralgia again and this one was a doozer but I'm finally on the mend."Trigeminal neuralgia (TN), or tic douloureux, is one of the most painful afflictions known. It is characterized by episodes of excruciating stabbing or electrical shock-like pains which are confined to one side of the face. The brief episodes of pain last up to two minutes and may occur spontaneously or be triggered by light stimulation, such as washing, shaving, combing, showering, talking, brushing teeth, chewing, eating and drinking. During periods of exacerbation, these pain attacks may occur many times per day and can be difficult to control with medical treatments." I'm right now uploading another video and I promise to take better care of my blog!
