Unilateral, Bilateral

Thank you to all my lovely friends at

Your answers to my bilateral question were so very helpful. At this time I am pretty convinced that it's tooth #14 resposible for the zingers on that side. I have finally, FINALLY, got an appointment on Friday the 6th for extraction. If I'm still having pains and zingers after that, then I will mention it to the neurologist...whom I can't get in to see until MAY! There are only 3 neurologists that I am aware of in Spokane who treat TN. I am thinking of calling the other two to see if I can get in sooner.

On another note, the numbness is coming back. All that fun stuff I mentioned awhile ago... I will mention this to the acupuncturist tomorrow.

Til next time,

Been Awhile

So it's been over a month since I've posted.

The frequency of attacks has been lessened by medication. I don't have them as often. About twice a week. One being mild and the other being intolerable. Actually right now, I have had an attack for the last hour. None of the zinging pains but a lot of the burning tingling pain. I have nothing in the house for it. Not even an ice pack. We spent the weekend moving so not everything is here and ready to go just yet.

I am hoping this will subside soon. I want to curl up in a ball in the dark, with no noise but it's impossible. I have a screaming two year old and a baby to attend to so this blogging is my only peace of mind.

Til next time
