Atypical Trigeminal Neuralgia DesperateHer (40, from PR) condition has done nothing except worsen over the last 18 months. I fear for her life. That the ATN is not a correct diagnosis, but rather just one symptom of the cause.. 'it feels like electric worms burrowing painfully through branches'.
I found an incredible match in Spigelia described by its pains, I sent her tube of 30c doses, the instructions said to take 3 at a time, 3 times a day. But she took 3 and experienced a hypertensive high BP, fast pulse, with pounding headache back behind the ears. 2 days later she tried again with the same result. I need the good advice that I should have sought in the beginning.
Her Pains in order of most distressing (burrowing worms is no longer at the top).
All pains are unilateral on the left. :
>Electricity through teeth and sockets and jawbone (constant)
>Worms burrowing painfully up into in cheek, below eye to the ear area.
>Deep central headache sometimes with red face
>painful teeth especially when eating. Can't chew or brush.
>anxiety that something is growing in her neck behind her ear (left) - a swelling is there
>anxiety for her blood pressure (she has Rx Verapamil)
>anxiety for her irregular heatbeats

How are you doing today?
'I won't complain'
Modern Medical science has proved it knows nothing about anything outside of tiny observable falsifiable facts. As such, these facts omit more truth than they contain.
In contrast, to me with a Biochemistry degree, it is an irony that I see now an empathy for the body in homeopathy, and this alone is more substantial than the whole of western medical science.
She must be moved out of this danger zone, I am profoundly urged by my feelings.
Right now she can endure the pain but not heart or head failure. And she worries most about something new in her neck behind ear.
I am respectfully grateful in advance..
