Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness Week: we’ve been encouraged to share a Trigeminal Neuralgia episode from the day so that people get details more than “my face hurts”. It’s such a rare disease that even many doctors have no clue about it.
So. I was sitting at my desk this morning and there was this bright flash, an ice pick stabbing my eye, and then it felt like a million ants crawling out of my eyes. Little tiny scratches and stings that were highly intense for a several minutes and then softened to a more tolerable pain that is still there now. 🌐💙
**Again, I’m sharing this info to educate the masses for all those with TN, so please don’t take this as a “woe is me”. Of course, I always appreciate your prayers, but I’ve accepted the pain, and I’ve had years to adjust to my “normal”.🥴🤪**
