I went to the Doctor yesterday morning and he had me see one of his staff who specializes in sinus and nervous system in the face (I’m sure there’s a medical title for that). He believes I have Trigeminal Neuralgia
: it’ a nerve condition that causes episodes of severe pain in and on the face (including searing pain in the face, scalp, teeth, mouth and nose). Medically, the cause is unknown.
The treatment is medication that was, at one time given to patients with epilepsy to help control and re-train the nerves, as well as some pain medication for night time and when the pain is too severe.
Presently, about once an hour, I am having these facial attacks that last for about 5-10 minutes. It will most likely take a week to start seeing results from the medication.
Our God is BIG and I believe He can do anything. Please stand with me in prayer.
