I remember the day I first experienced trigeminal nerve pain all too well. It felt like a jolt of electricity coursing through my face; I had no idea what was happening. The episodes kept coming and increasing in intensity, until I was finally diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia.
Since then, my life has been a living hell. My days are full of excruciating pain, my nights sleepless and unbearable. The tiniest of stimulants, from a kiss to a breeze, bring forth searing, burning sensations that leave me in a state of despair. I can no longer work, or even enjoy things I once loved. I’ve become a recluse, living in a world of pain and isolation.
I’ve sought out every kind of treatment and remedy, but nothing seems to help. Medications leave me in a daze, and nerve blocks just prolong the inevitable. I feel so helpless, as if no one understands my plight. I just want to find peace, but instead I suffer interminably.
Trigeminal Neuralgia has completely taken over my life, draining me of any hope I once had. I am forever stuck in a cycle of pain, despair, and trauma. If only there was a cure, then I could find some respite from this pain.
