It took more than six years for Holley to find a doctor who could diagnose her correctly. Once she found out what was causing her pain, Holley set out on the journey to be able to manage the pain so she could live a semi-normal life.
Trigeminal Neuralgia is a condition that affects every area of your life. Holley said that prior to finding effective pain management methods, she struggled to eat and was losing weight. Holley said her condition even affects her relationships with her husband and her children.
“My kids, my kids… that’s all they know of me,” Holley said.
KENS 5 producer Emily Porter first connected with Holley in 2015. Holley already had met with doctors in Dallas. Her pain was still too much to handle on a regular basis.
