I’m so sorry. I hope things improve very soon for you. And I hope you are able to find moments of peace and joy as you wait. 🙁 webster says: August 16, 2014 at 7:05 am Here is an answer that was just published in the Aug/Sep issue of Neurology Now: “Most patients with TN improve with medication such as the anticonvulsant carbamazepine. Symptoms may go away on their own for months at a time, especially early on. However, as time goes on, TN tends to become more persistent, Many patients need surgery to control their pain. (also on my Google search) “Pain impacts many aspects of life. It can cause stress, depression, and limit overall functioning. Exercise is a great way to improve mood and sleep, and relieve stress, and provide a healthy distraction during tough times. Swimming or running outside, can be a trigger with the aid of water or air touching your face; instead try running inside on a treadmill (without a fan blowing at you). [me: like that’s going to happen! lol] In other pain conditions aerobic exercise is helpful in removing pain because it helps to release endorphins. However, they then add the ubiquitous caveat: ask you doctor before starting an exercise routine.” (sic) I might add that seated using a peddler is also exercise, and would be easier in the heat of your Texas Summer! Also, you could do it outside in the relative cool of the evening, and also use it as a hand/arm exerciser. Oh, I am just full of advice today, aren’t I? My comment of two entries ago never showed up. Don’t know why. katydidknot says: August 15, 2014 at 8:53 pm Yummy, although I’m sorry you need it.
