A 68 years old lady Mrs. L.G. (PIN number L-9524) reported to the clinic on 12 April 2007 with complaints of Trigeminal Neuralgia.
She was suffering from TN for the last 12 years. She had intermittent attacks for a few years, which increased in frequency to weekly attacks. For the last 3 years, she had regular, daily attacks of severe, uncontrolled pain. She had constant pain throughout the day. The intense pain would last for 10 to 15 minutes. She would even have to wake up asleep, two to three times, due to the pain. The pain would start from the left ear and radiate to the left jaw and left side of the head. The pain would be triggered by eating hard food or by drinking cold water or chewing food and the pain was more severe in the evening and night.
She was on several medicines which could not relieve the pain. She was on Tab Tylenol two tablets four times a day and Tab Mazetol (Carbamazepine) 400 thrice a day.
MRI brain: Mild age-related cerebral atrophy.
She was suffering from hypertension which was well controlled with medicines.
She also complained of severe tingling and numbness in her hands and feet for the past six months. She had glove stocking-like sensations, in her palms and feet.
She had a craving for sweets.
She was a social person, she looked dignified and confident. She was fastidious and a perfectionist. She was disciplined and took pride in her qualities. She maintained her house in a very perfect manner, she took efforts at it. She had a superiority complex.
Based on the above symptoms Dr. Shah prescribed her his patented medicine along with Platina 200 C. She had partial relief with the medicines for the first few months, after which her potency was raised to Platina 1M. She showed immediate results, there was a drastic reduction in the pain and the severe intense pains almost vanished. Some mild intermittent pain persisted, but they were tolerable. There was a good reduction in her complaints of tingling and numbness. The painkillers and tab Mazetol were reduced. She is still under treatment.
The family is no longer under the stress of the sudden, unpredictable, and intensely helpless, painful episodes. The patient and the entire family are largely relieved with the improvement.
