My ex has TN, and MMJ has really helped her out. I believe she only took Tegetrol during a flareup. Her flareups are mostly related to contact in that general area.

Of course, MMJ didn't help her with being a 1st class bee-yotch.

Let me say my heart goes out to anyone who has Trigeminal neuralgia. While growing up in the late 50's 60's, my father had TN. Back then they had a lot less information on the illness than they have today. I remember the drugs prescribed to my Dad and nothing worked for him unless it knocked him out. This went on for years, then someone, I don't recall who, recommended acupuncture. He went to three secessions and it didn't work but he still wanted to try a few more secession because he was getting nowhere with the MD's, especially since he had drastic surgery and had all the nerves in his face cut thinking that that would stop the pain and it didn't. He continued with the acupuncture. After the fourth secession the pain stopped for about two months and then he had another bout with TN. He immediately started a regular scheduled secession with his acupuncture. He never had another painful encounter with TN after that!

Regards,

I ran " trigeminal" through my new list and came up with these-

Anandamide Is Able to Inhibit Trigeminal Neurons Using an in Vivo Model of Trigeminovascular-Mediated Nociception (full - 2004)
Anandamide Is Able to Inhibit Trigeminal Neurons Using an in Vivo Model of Trigeminovascular-Mediated Nociception

Cannabinoid (CB1) Receptor Activation Inhibits Trigeminovascular Neurons
(full - 2006)
Cannabinoid (CB1) Receptor Activation Inhibits Trigeminovascular Neurons

Anandamide (an endocannabinoid your body makes) and THC both activate the CB1 receptors. They can do the same "jobs". Nociception just means pain.


Hope that helps-

The MVD operation was OK. It was the best option for me, and has helped me stop taking the Tegretol, Lyrica and Tylenol III pharmaceuticals prescribed by my neurologist. I could not function on the pills. I am still getting breakthrough TN flares when I am overactive and get heated-up, but that's to be expected.

If you're healthy and your Doctors are recommending the MVD surgery, then it's worth thinking about - and do everything you can to get off the pharmaceuticals.
