hello there! i have to ask now if you've read 'playing beattie bow' - when i was in sydney i was wishing i had my paperback copy in hand
ok thx re clarification.
can you tell me any more background health stuff, even minor things that have bugged you forever? that could help flag a broader issue.
just to give you an idea of where i'm going, i know there's the type of TN where blood vessels press on the trigeminal nerve, so i'm looking at vasospasm as a possible connection. if you are used to cramps, aches, pains in other parts of your body, or cold/discolored extremities, and - on another tangent entirely - general past skin problems either like or unlike your current rash, that's the kind of thing i'm hoping you could tell me.
to answer your original question, i think everyone should pay attention to messages from their bodies, but it's very hard for me to say what could be at the root of your particular constellation of symptoms right now. we might be able to tease out some ideas if you feel like chatting in more detail. i have a very specific approach and i'll say right off that i'm not coming up with anything glaringly obvious in the research, only case studies, which is why i'm asking for more detail - only if you feel like sharing.
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
