I had a medullary stroke in 2011. Wallenburg syndrome, paralyzed vocal cord,stomach feeding tube, the whole works. The Dr. said I had trigiminal neurolgia to boot. I had the gamma knife with no success. After 3 years, I am having SCS implant next week to hopefully reduce or eliminate the pain in my face.
