I usually post on the anxiety forum but I thought I would jump over here for a bit too.
I suffer from high anxiety which is being controlled with anxiety meds.
I have had a headache since the beginning of November. Had CT, MRI. Normal except a few white spots on MRI.
My headache is not a usual headache. I have neck pain with it, stabbing head pains, extreme pain in temples, and then it radiates over the top of my forehead. This has been every day since November.
I had an MRA done yesterday. Still waiting on the results.
My new neuro prescribed Nortriptyline HCL 25mg once a day at bedtime. I am a little scared to take it since I take an SSRI for anxiety. The doctor and pharmacist said it should be okay. I took my first one last night.
Does anyone else have head pain like this? It is really troublesome to me and increases my anxiety. If the MRA show nothing I am leaning towards it being a chronic tension headache. I go for another massage tonight. I have tryed chiropractor, accupuncture, meditation, over the counter meds, heat, ice, nothing has helped.
Does this sound familiar to anyone? Anyone have any results with this med and if so how long before if provides relief?
