A Simple Home Remedy for Facial Neuralgia Pain That Works!
(Calgary, Alta, Canada)
I worked at job that required a lot of time with a phone perched on my shoulder balancing against my ear and chin.
Many months later I started to get a horrid ache that started to affect the side of my face. I could not sleep and could no longer function at my job properly.
The pain was incessant.
I went to the doctor, who suggested dental problems. No medication would help and the dentist was also at a loss.
Finally, I started to do my own research on Trigeminal Neuralgia and search for a cure myself - a home remedy that would give me relief. After some months of trying heat, cold, various creams from the pharmacy, I was still in pain.
In desperation for relief I had some RUB A535 cream with heat (RUB A535 Maximum Strength Heating Cream
). Only the extra strength kind with heat worked, all the other brands did not work anywhere near as well. I have also tried this cream on occasional repeat pain that I've had.
I looked online and saw a chart of the path of the facial nerve, from the temple to the cheek, and saw that it ended at the midpoint of the chin.
So I applied this cream to the skin temple area/hole and followed the path from my hairline to the back of my ear. I also circled to the front of the ear and across to the cheek then to the front of the chin. I applied it as often as possible when I wasn't at work.
After a week it started to dull the pain, then eventually it finally left. If I noticed the nerve pain starting again, with pain in my temple area, I quickly put the cream on and the pain would leave within a couple of days.
I have kept this cream treatment and have been basically free from the continual pain for the last 20 years. If I feel a restart, I apply the cream straight away and it goes.
I almost had a fit recently when I couldn't find the maximum strength cream on the shelves. I tried the regular or plain extra strength but these did not help. I'm guessing it's the camphor in the maximum strength heat cream that makes it work so well.
