Tic Douloureux Treatment Gives Promising Results By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Q — My doctor says I have trigeminal neuralgia, common-! ly called tic douloureux. He gave me an alcohol injection that relieved the pain for about a year. The pain has come back and my doctor says that aside from another injection the only treatment is to cut the nerve. However, I have heard that there is a new treatment. Please tell me about it. THE AMERICAN FINAL/FILTER ' PATENT APPLIED FOR ...and only Standard Oil Dealers have it! • N r.H. COMPANY 61883 AMERICAN OIL COMPANY FRANK WEATHERFORD, Templeton St., Mt. Vernon, Dial 244-090: A — Tic douloureux Is a common and very painful ailment. Until recently destruction of Ithe nerve was the only sure cure. Now there is another treatment. A woman with this disease was found to have no, acid in her gastric juice. When 1 she was given dilute hydrochloric acid her pain ceased. This led to the assumption that in hypersensitive or allergic persons a temporary or permanent disappearance of acid from the gastric juice might permit (histamine or a related substance to pass from the stomach into the blood and be carried to the trigeminal nerve. Working on this theory a series of patients with tic doulou- reaux were given small but increasing injections of histamine |in an effort to desensitize them. They were also given dilute hydrochloric acid. Those who had .previously had boiling water injected into the nerve did not respond to the new treatment! but the rest showed varying de -l grees of improvement. No treat-' ment for this disease can be guaranteed, but this new method j is worth trying. Q — What Is the treatmentl for rheumatic fever in adults? I A — The treatment of rheumatic fever in adults is essen-ii tially the same as that In children. The victim should rest in I bed until all signs of active i disease haved disappeared. Aspirin or other salicylates are given. Steroid hormones mayji also be given In the period of, active infection, and penicillin or a sulfonamide for the next five years to prevent rheumatic 'heart disease. Q — What parts of the face cannot be improved by plastic I surgery? I was in an accident ,F and had one lower eyelid badly, torn. i ! A — Plastic surgeons have! made great strides since the on- 1 set of World War II. I don't j, believe there is any part of the face that has been injured that 1 can't be improved. The greatest trouble is that well-qualified plastic surgeons are still in short" supply and many middle sized cities do not have one. I Please send your questions and comments to Dr. Wayne G.
