A 52-year-old lady from the USA, Mrs. E. F. (PIN: 25818) was desperately searching for the right medicines for her Trigeminal Neuralgia. In her online search, she found Dr. Shah's website and communicated with a team of online doctors at Life Force and opted for the online treatment on 26th July 2018. She was suffering from trigeminal neuralgia since October 2016. The frequency of the episodes of this condition affecting her was 4-5 times per day that would last for 1 hour. She was experiencing symptoms, such as sudden sharp, shock-like electric pain in her left upper jaw. The pain may affect her small area of the face or may spread from jaw towards the left side of her cheek, nose, and eye. The dentist took an X-ray but nothing abnormal was found in the report. Her intense flashes of pain would get triggered when anything would come in the contact with her cheek, such as when washing the face or applying makeup, brushing the teeth, eating, drinking, talking, or being exposed to the wind. She consulted a Neurologist from the USA who prescribed her oral conventional medicines, however, she started feeling dizzy and her body started trembling after the consumption of conventional medicines. She managed to take the medicines for one week, however, she was not able to continue due to its severe side-effects. She was on Dolo-Neurobion shots and was trying some home remedies.
Trigeminal neuralgia had significantly and negatively impacted her quality of life. She had turned quite anxious and depressed. Her sleep was disturbed due to the sudden attacks of pain, and, also, it was getting difficult for her to do her daily activities. She felt handicapped. Her social interaction was affected negatively. Also, her relationship with her husband was affected badly. She was emotionally disengaged and had started to stay aloof. She cried with pain and felt like running from everything.
After studying and analyzing her case in detail, Dr. Shah prescribed Tarentula cubensis-30 along with his research-based medicines for four months to the patient.
On 16th December 2018, the patient reported her frequency of getting pains was quite reduced after starting with our homeopathic treatment. After having the first batch of medicines, the frequency of trigeminal neuralgia was drastically reduced to once/week from four to five times a day.
On 1st April 2019, the patient informed that she was better by more than 85%. The frequency of getting episodes of trigeminal neuralgia pain was 1-2 times in a month and the episode would last hardly for 2-3 seconds. She started to enjoy her time with husband and friends.
The above case highlights that her right choice of opting for Homeopathic treatment helped her in getting rid of her severe, unbearable pain of Trigeminal Neuralgia effectively. The homeopathic medicine reduces the frequency of the episodes of trigeminal neuralgia, make the episodes less intense, and, eventually, lead to remission. Homeopathic treatment and medicines for trigeminal neuralgia are absolutely harmless, non-toxic, and free from side effects.
