Anything good for glossopharyngeal neuralgia? 13

 

The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Glossopharyngeal neuralgia

2 years ago my husband had an malignant tumor under his tongue which he had surgically removed. A year later he had several metastasis in the lymph glands in his neck. Recently the neuralgia in his mouth is continuing to get worse with mostly burning in his tongue, which is also very irritated as well as the roof of his mouth. Just recently I found the diagnosis Glossopharyngeal neuralgia and we would like to approach this in a natural manner as he has already tried antidepressives but is not thrilled with the idea of anti-epileptic medicine nor further surgery. Can you please advise me as to which remedies would help to diminish his problems. This is one of those types of pain which long terms literally can destroy someone which is my greatest fear as well. If you have any questions please let me know. Yours truly.

Thanks. First I have to order it, but will update afterwards.

Remedy given Friday.
Slept better first two nights.
Slight improvement but still skeptical because of fluctuations. I say embrace any improvements but that's difficult for him.

Thank you for your assistance and any further advice.
 
sdok33 9 years ago
Hi,

Repeat the remedy once more please as per the previous method. And please don't forget to stir vigorously before you start dosing.

There is no need to be sceptical. Homeopathy provides 100% relief.

Please also answer the following questions:
What has improved and what has not?

And what is the current situation?

Improvement:

Slept better for 2 nights.

Some better periods, less burning in his mouth.

Additional:
Stirred until I couldn't see the pellets anymore.

Skepticism is in his nature.

Seems slightly calmer.

Will get back to you on Thursday than.

Please see my answer in the previous post (edited).
 
Zady101 9 years ago
Hello. Unfortunately no improvement that he's willing to admit to.

Last night he slept well and when I tried to potentially link that to remedy he said: he has periods where sleeping is okay.

Burning in the mouth is even worse at times, so much so that I had to reschedule his next appointment so that it's earlier than scheduled.

Thanks anyway for your thoughts.

Yours truly.
