I have swollen glands under my chin and I have been in severe pain since
Tuesday. I went to the ER and they dx me with Trigeminal Neuralgia but they
only gave enough meds to last til mid-night Saturday. When I called them to
see if I could come back they treated me very nasty and said if I did the
doctor would tell me to take Advil and go home!!! I had to call doctors'
offices for 2 hours to find someone to help me. He called in more med but it is
a smaller dose that what the ER had prescribed and it does not take the pain
all the way away. (will write more about this later.)
Anyway here's my problem the pain is as severe as what is discribed under
Trigeminal Neuralgia but it is not stopping I have not had a break without the
meds and it should be lasting on about 15 min tops. I have been in pain since
Tuesday!!! The other thing is that everything I read says that it should only
on one side of my face. But I am having what appears to be real Trigeminal
neualgia on the right side and the non-stop pain on the left.
I am going crazy from the pain and am despert to find out what this is?
I go to see a neurologist tomorrow. But not sure how I'm suppose to hold out til then.
