Donroc, that's terrible. Is she doing better?

So sorry about your friend, Pat!

Thank you all for asking. Today my wife is medicated and sleeping. We are waiting for the neurosurgeon to return my calls and prescribe better meds. The ideal is to dull the pain without making her groggy. There seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel. This has gone on since February 12th.

Material about trigeminal neuralgia on the internet offer little hope as well and bad news mostly for women as they age.

I hope things get sorted with regards to your wife, Donroc. Sounds awful.

So sorry to learn about your friend, Pat.

Donroc, I am sorry to hear about your wife's condition. It must be painful for both of you with her suffering from such a debilitating condition. It is good to hear that she is at least sleeping now.

Take care of both of you and know that you are in my thoughts,
Andrea

I can commisserate with those of you afflected with migraines and your families too who can only watch you suffer. Years ago my wife also suffered from severe migraines and nothing worked until her cousin married a Swiss MD who put her on Opthaldon (not availale in the USA), a suppository that quickly dulled the pain. A few years later the Swiss took it off the market because it negatively affected pregnant women.

Hope everything is okay. Thinking of you and your wife at this time.

Thank you. I neglected to mention this shocker: At Emergency yesterday the attending physician and nurse had to look up trigeminal neuralgia -- neither had heard of it.

Worst things today: can't shake this nasty headache, and depressed by the price of wooden swing sets.

Finding out my email form service is not working and I don't know how long it's been down since I don't get that many emails through it as it is, so I didn't notice anything wrong. I'm replacing it with a hotmail address for now.

Five year old has suddenly slipped into another aggressive phase for no apparent reason. When he's sweet he is just an angel, but boy does he have a temper!
