His pain is so intense and I am watching the life get sucked right out of him. He is 48 and is way too young to lie down in defeat.
Has anyone found anything that works for this pain? He has already taken Tegratol and a slew of other medications for this to no avail. He is currently taking Vicoden and Tramadol for the pain with little or no relief.
Blessings to all:
My husband had this TN they call it for short and he had a MVD and has been without pain since 2011.. It started back in 2006 he took 1200 Tegratol and so many other drugs he ended up after surgery having short term memory loss from all the drugs...but today he is better...Now we are dealing with MCI mild Cognitive impartment I need support for this is why I am here....Hugs
