Hi I have just joined today in the hope that I have finally found the place to talk to people going through the same thing. I started with daily one sided headaches on the left side of my head 18 months ago and after several mis diagnoses lots of different drugs and a general 18 months of hell Im still in daily pain. I dont remeber what a normal day is like anymore I generally have bad days with painful stabbing pains into my left temple and ear area often they progress into a full blow migraine of constant pain in the same area.
In the past four months Ive developed veritgo which with this quite severly which has now really restricted my abilty to go anywhere and can strike me down at any time and I have become depressed as well from the daily pain. Im seeing a neurologist and depiste a clear MRI last year he wants me to have another which Im worried sick about as I think he suspects there may be something to find. I also get other little symptoms that come and go but dont want to bog you all down as I can see that you are all suffering to but have i finally found people who are going though the same thing - I have been so scared that I was the only one for so very long now I just want to know there are some people out there that get these head aches to and that they are head aches as bad as the pain is
Im now taking methysergide, verapimil, topirimate, amitriptyline and stemtile on a daily basis as well as paracetamol as my neurologist does not want me constantly taking pain relief he prefers me not to take the paracetamol daily but he should try and cope with this pain any replies would be welcome.
