    Hi.. I've suffered with the trigeminal nerve shocks to my jaw with my MS.Drug treatment has been with Tegrotol and Neurontin. I just had a very bad relapse with the nerve pain.The I.V.steroids and prednisone definitely helped.My Dr and I have discussed further treatment- least invasive being gamma knife radiation. I've decided to do that. I'm just curious if anyone else has done this treatment and has had good results. Would love to heat that-anyone?
