I am an avid reader of your magazine but must express a little disappointment: I have rarely if ever seen any articles concerning neuralgia. I have been diagnosed with glossopharyngeal neuralgia bilaterally and had microvascular decompression surgery 12 years ago on one side only. After having the surgery I developed partial complex seizures. I understand that trigeminal neuralgia is finally gaining recognition within the neurological community. Is there any hope on the horizon for patients like me? I am fortunate to work full-time and maintain a household by myself. I hope to continue as long as my body will allow and would love to hear of any new treatments available to assist in keeping my independence.
