The last week I've been sedated twice by a&e.... They have put me on oramorph.... It's making me sick, all the time and totally wiping me out... Which I can't really do because I have two small children and an o/h that works away from home... I'm getting very depressed with the pain, and all the doctors want to do is fill me with meds... Basically this is a reach out to anyone with TN that's going through the same... I have other conditions too, but they are apparently unrelated... Hashimoto thyroiditis, thurasic outlet syndrome, scoliosis... All cause me pain in different ways as well as TN the true pain in the... Face! I'd just want support... Feeling a bit lost and alone really... I have a friend with fibro, she gets flare up days, but (and I don't want this to sound harsh) they don't put her in hospital like mine... TN seems to be controlling my life... And pretty much anything can trigger it.... 😢 I've had enogh really, and if it wasn't for my girls... I don't want to think of the consequences. Last weeks flare up had me smashing my face into the side of the hospital bed and I cracked my own cheek bone... Slightly bruised to say the least... I just want it to go away Trigeminal Neuralgia rules my life... Anyone got a get out for it??
