long time trigeminal neuralgia

Hello everybody!
I am wondering if I can get some help for my mom. She has been suffering for the last 10 years terrible pain in her right cheek. The pain has been increasing, from very often sparks of pain to very frequent burst that last seconds (even minutes). In addition, the pain has been extended to other areas including the upper part of the head. She is very sensitive to stressful situations, and every time gets colder the pain increases.

She has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. She gets tired after walking during 30min and she has a little of balance problems.

The most important thing for her is to decrease the pain caused by the trigeminal neuralgia.

Any help is very welcome!

Hi kadwa,
we just followed the indications and my mom has felt a bit better. Basically, the pain decreased a tiny bit, but that tiny bit is very good at this point. About her energy levels, she feels with a bit more energy , so she wants to do more things , because before she just wanted to lay on bed all day.

I'm glad about this improvement and I would like to know what is the next step.

Cheers,
