    I have got my operation date, 12th January, so it will be a good start to the New Year to be rid of the pain!!

    Excellent news. Nothing more draining than constant pain. Hope it goes well for you. Here's to a pain free 2012 [​IMG]

    Ah, good news. Hope you aren't in too much pain until then. Think of the relief when you get it sorted.
    All the best to you.
  4. What a relief that must be for you. Fabulous news (and good luck) [​IMG]

    Thanks, after 4 weeks of horrendous pain, so bad I had to turn down 3 days work, I am relatively pain nfree at the moment. This condition is really weird and I hate having it, me sympathy goes to anyone else who has it.
    I am definitely leaving something in my will for research into the condition, although having read the book which a poster kindly lent me, it appears that the myelin sheath of the nerve wears away as you get older and so contact with the artery becomes unbearable. However that doesn't explain why young people get it and why it comes and goes.
  6. Have you tried gin?

    Hope you are pain free soon. :¬) xxxxx

    That was the first thing I tried, Bauble, I doubt that even several pints of Olde and Feelthy would stop this pain, mind you the smell might!! [​IMG]
  8. That is such good news lapin. At last!
  9. A nice mix of gin, olde and filthy and disorornno manages to kill any illness up to and including denga fever.

    Glad to hear it Lapin - it must be a relief to know that it's imminent.

    I'm fascinated by the myelin sheath - it doesn't develop fully until around the age of 7 and there is a school of thought that chemicals (particularly nerve stimulants such as msg) have an adverse effect on children. I didn't know that it wore out. I wonder if that is why the pain my mother in law suffered as a result of shingles on her eye and the nerve running from her eye to her forehead was so very extraordinary.

    Glad to hear that they have finally given you a date.
    I hope it isn't too bad over the Chrismas period and gives you a respite so you can enjoy your Christmas dinner x
