A patient Dr Miss N.S. (PIN 12015) was suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia since the last two years. She reported to Life Force on 11 April 2009.
She was actually diagnosed as mandible sclerotic osteomyelitis, (localized), by her treating neurologist, so he just currated the part, did not touch the nerve. She started getting the first symptoms 2 years ago, during Root Canal Treatment. She has pain in the left mandible and tongue and lips. She was put on tablet tegretol 1200 mg per day, with relief, then patient was asymptomatic for 1 year, again she got a relapse, so she was suggested tablet tripotal 600 mg per day, when she consulted us she had severe pain in the 1 st and second premolar. The pain was more on eating and talking, the pain was electric shock like pain, mild to moderate in intensity.
She had a craving for sweets. She was sensitive to cold weather.
She stayed with her parents. Her father was a strict and disciplinarian person. He was very conservative in nature and patient was afraid of him. He did not like her talking with boys, or wearing western clothes. She had stress in college; she was studying dental science and had a stress coping up with studies and clinical work. She was very social and liked to mix with friends. This was met with resistance in her home, which added to her stress.
She was sensitive in nature. She would not express her emotions. She was weepy, even watching sentimental movies…
Her father suffered from Hodgkin’s lymphoma mother suffered from Diabetes.
She was currently on tablet tripotal 300 mg twice a day.
Dr Shah studies her case in detail and prescribed Staphysagria 30 C, to be taken three times a day. In two months there was good relief. In five to six months she could discontinue all her allopathic medicines. She remained symptoms free for almost one and a half year. Just before her final exams she got a very severe attack of TN. She was sent additional medicines and she got complete relief in one week.
She came to thank Dr Shah personally for his treatment.
