Acupuncture for facial nerve pain/trigeminal neuralgia/Bell's
nerve pain/sciatica/shoulder pain/ headache/migraine/arthritis/high blood
trigeminal neuralgia has greatly improved due to taking Chinese
It all began when I had a nerve sensitivity in
my right tooth when I drank anything hot. This lasted for about 3
months. When I went to my dentist and told him about this, he said
I needed a root canal done.
Now this was my front, beautiful tooth which I
had never had a problem with before, so I was cautious about having
this done. After another month went by, I began having so much
nerve pain in that tooth and up into my nose on the right side. I
decided my dentist was right, and I agreed to have the root canal
done. It all seemed to go well, until about 2 days after the
procedure when all the pain came back and more. My dentist gave me
antibiotics and a steroid in case there was an infection.
After a week went by, the pain was still
there. He suggested another root canal and I agreed. This again
proved to not help the pain go away. I was then recommended to an
endodontist, who consulted with me, and suggested another root
canal. I agreed in hopes that this was my final answer to my pain.
Indeed, it was not. By this time, my poor tooth was untouchable and
I could not eat with it.
I was finding it difficult to eat, wash my
face, or touch it in any way. It was like a knife in my tooth
socket all the time. I only drank through straws because I couldn’t
let heat or cold touch that tooth with its sensitivity. Next, the
endodontist recommended me to have oral surgery because he thought I
possibly had a bone infection. I went along with this in hopes of
getting some final relief. This was the most painful experience I
had ever had. When it was over, my tooth was so untouchable and I
had so much pain, I could hardly stand it. I could barely eat, and
washing my face caused me to cry every time.
The dentist then said to me that it probably
wasn’t a tooth problem after all. My husband began reading up on
nerve disorders in the meantime, and truly felt that I had
trigeminal neuralgia. I made an appointment with a neurologist who
confirmed this diagnosis. I was given medication called Carbatrol
which I am still taking. It has also relieved much of my facial
pain. I am taking high doses though of this medication and it
includes many side effects. My blood is drawn often to make sure
that my blood does not reach certain levels. Therefore, I do not
want to take too high of a dosage and cause major problems.
For my back pain years ago and my fatigue, I
had taken Chinese herbs. Indeed, they had helped me quite a bit to
go through this pain I was dealing with at the time. So, I decided
to come to Dr. Wu for some herbs for my face.
After using his recommended herbs for my facial
pain, I felt a great improvement in the sensitivity surrounding that
tooth. I am more able to wash my face without the huge amount of
pain as before, and I have more energy to endure this nerve disorder
that I will have for the rest of my life.
I am very thankful to be taking Dr. Wu’s
Chinese herbs and will continue on them with the hopes of someday
not taking the medicines that are not natural ingredients.
He has also given me herbs for my hot flushes.
I was having these flushes through out the day and night, leaving me
with a miserable night’s sleep even I am taking the Remifemine from
my family Dr.. I no longer have this problem at night at all on his
herbs. And maybe I will have one or two during the day now, and
that is it.
This is a wonderful help to me, and these
Chinese herbs have been a real answer to my prayers for my
trigeminal nerve problem as well as for my hot flushes.
