Hi, I live in south africa. i have bn to 5 or 6 doctors and none of them can help me with my pain, at night i feel like just killing my self and then atleast the pain will be gone...
This has bn going on every night for the past 2 years.. yes 2 EDIT years
My left eye hurts like hell and light makes it much worse
left ear has a pain so bad that it feels like i knife going into my ear and twisting inside
When i breathe my left nostril and left side of my inner throat hurts like hell
Back left side of my neck feels like its all twisted up
my left upper and lower jaw hurts
The glands beneath my left ear swell up and hurt
This pain comes for about 3 hours then goes away 3 to 4 times daily. some times more.
I sleep about 1 to 2 hours a night if im lucky so its effecting my mood and my work,
Doc one said i have an ear infection so spent about 2 grand on meds and doctors fees did not help
then the second doctor said i have a neck problem and i need to stretch my neck.
3rd doc told me i Have Trigeminal neuralgia wich is also known as suicide disease...
I have bn on degranol 400mg and trepilene 50mg for about 7 months now but its not helping anymore,
In the beginning it helped me sleep but now the pain wakes me,,
I can be drunk at a party but alcohol does not numb the pain,
tried smoking weed to numb the pain but that just made it worse,, when i was high the pain went all the way downto my lower spine...
any one have this kind of pain? and what can i do or what specialist must i go c...
