This year I started experiencing atypical trigeminal neuralgia. Since I've lost around 115lbs, it seems doctors are rather tempted to believe it may be due to nutritional deficiency. I don't think so- paleo foods are more nutritionally dense and bio-available.
But here I am on gabapentin and a multi-vitamin(yeah, I know they are useless) wondering what the correct approach would be. I held off as long as I could because I really didn't want drugs at all, but pain is a powerful motivator.
In the past I just avoided doctors, but since it seems I am now forced by this pain to deal with them, I could use a few pointers on how to deal with them and how to minimize the damage.
