I am looking for advice/opinions... for the past 14 months I have had a non-stop, 24/7 headache. I have been diagnosed with NDPH (new daily persistant headache) and am being treated by a neurologist. Although I have tried many different treatment options and medications, nothing is working. I was tested for Lyme by a standard lab test which came back negative. Below are my symptoms:
about 6 months before my headache began I started having severe stomach problems. I couldn't eat & if I did I would become very ill. I had a colonoscopy done & eventually was told I just had IBS. After a few months this went away.
I also have joint pain in my knee & elbow (I am only 30). Sometimes I have trouble remembering things but I am not sure if that is long term effects of all the meds I have tried... or something else. I have read online about getting a Lyme test done through Igenex. I sent away for the test kit and received it last week. Does anyone have any experience with this or know what test I should get? Does it even sound like Lyme to anyone? I don't ever remember having a rash/ring but I have had plenty of ticks over the past years. My family and I spend a lot of time camping and hiking in the woods.
Any advice or comments would be GREATLY appreciated. I am just looking for something to explain this constant pain. Thank you!!
