My father has Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) for few years now, and the pain was getting worse with time. Subscribed pain killers had serious side effects. We decided to let my father try the PainShield before the surgery. After 8 week, he got to complete relief, stopped the pain killers completely and is using the PainShield 1-2 times every week.
My father has Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) for few years now, and the pain is getting worse with time. Doctor subscribed him special pain killer which has serious side effects. He cannot do anything at all as the pain appears unexpectedly. He cannot eat, talk and sleep and always lose his temper. His doctor suggest do a surgery on the face by cutting one nerve line but this means losing the facial feeling and no guarantee that the pain won’t come back.
I Googled TN, PainShield come up, as this is a new thing, I did some research on the net. We decided to let my father try it before the surgery. The doctor in Hong Kong did not know about the PainShield but agreed to support my father and give it a try while using the pain killers.
After the 1-2 weeks of PainShield therapy, not much has changed. However, started from 3 week, my father could eat and talk for a longer time. After 4 weeks, the doctor started reducing the pain killers' dosage. His condition is getting better and better. Finally after 8 week, he stopped the pain killers and is using the PainShield 1-2 times every week.
The PainShield really helped me and my family as my father is getting back to normal life. PainShield is an amazing invention.
