I am so sorry you are hurting so bad, and actually just like me. I just finished posting the same kind of thing. And i just finished talking to my husband and saying i don't know how I am suppose to keep going like this with these horrible headaches. I too am so depressed. I don't know how to get out of bed each day. And I haven't except today I had a massage appt and then a doppler test this afternoon. I have no meds that will help. I am lost and sad and beside myself. So I know exactly where you are. Like Tina said we can only take it one day at a time. Quite often I take it one hour at a time. I can lend you my ear so i can listen to you and my shoulder so you can lean on me. We will help each other and everyone else here to get thru each day. It's all we can do sometimes.
I am sending you a huge hug because I care and it makes me feel like I can help someone and it takes my mind off of my own pain.
Chronic, severe and continuous bilateral temporal headaches since April 2000.
Poor prognosis, seen tons of doctors, been on dozens of meds and tried all forms of treatment with no success.
May 2010 to present taking DM, dextromethorphan, 4x/day, to continue to reset the receptors, weaning off of oxycodone as it did not help with my pain, pain continues to be terrible every minute of every day!
Feb to end of April 2010:3 cycles of IV Ketamine infusion via a PICC line and pump at home, this was to start resetting the receptors.
