I am going to make a long story short. I was diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia in Ohio. I moved to Indiana in 2005. The first neurologist I had said my pain was early signs of MS. The second neurologist said he could not say that I had MS but he could not say I did not. Soo, I've been going to him; getting MRA/MRIs. I cannot remember except for the report stating there was abnormal spots on my head. The headache I get now is different but VERY uncomfortable. Sometimes it hurts to brush my hair. Sometimes I refrain from doing anything to it. What a mess!!!! tongue I get shooting pain inside of my ears. The doctor has given me Imitrex but I haven't taken it yet. I will take it when I get home. I've been doing the normal: caffeine, ibuprofen, hydrocodone when it's really bad (home only), and the rest. CAN ANYONE OFFER ANY SUGGESTIONS??? I don't want to take medications all the time. I have to work. I would like to check into the pseudo-tumor. thing.

All I can tell you is that I too was prescribed imitrex,for my migraines,and not only did it not work but it made the aura part of my migrain painfull.That med is a triptan and it works for some but for me, you couldn't pay me to take another one.I now take midrin and for me it is truly a GOD send.good luck!
