Ya know, I went to the ER one night after taking the 8th dose of wellbutrin (yet one more attempt for pain relief before I got diagnosed). The wellbutrin caused me to have a migraine worse than any headache I've ever experienced. I didn't believe in going to the ER for headaches but after 36 hours of this grueling pain, my husband called my PCP and asked what he could do. He said I was having a reaction to the wellbutrin and to go straight to the ER. When I got there, I explained that one of my symptoms aside from migraine was a "Grinding feeling like I have broken glass in my neck when I turn it." the ER doctor held his stethascope (sp?) up to my neck and when I turned my head, the sound was so loud in his ears he jumped. He rushed me for a CT cuz he "swore my neck was broken!!" I told him I KNEW it wasn't broken, had this grinding before, was just really bad at the same time as the headache. Anyway, the CT was negative except for arthritis (which I already knew I had) and a reverse curve of the C-spine (which I knew I had). They gave me pain medication to help my head while the wellbutrin worked out of my system. That was NOT fun. I'll be curious to know what you find out, if you find out anything!! Good luck!
