Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal Neuralgia and Fatigue 

I would like to think, after two and a half years of trigeminal neuralgia, that I would know what to expect. I think I'm an expert at getting it the fuck done, chronic face pain and all. I'm aware that being in constant pain is very draining and I'm used to being exhausted all the time, but this is a wave of fatigue like never before

Exhausted, Yet I Just Can’t Sleep!

I don't like the thought of having a lazy day. I feel like a lie in is a wasted morning and going to bed early is a waste of an evening, but, today, a combination of the pain medication, barely any sleep last night (or the few nights before that), my usual blurry vision and my body trying to 'fight' to keep me well has rendered me submissive to a day of doing absolutely nothing.
