I have suffered for just under one year with a headache...My doctor at Jefferson is working on getting me in at Methodist Hospital in early March to try to break the cycle. Can anyone tell me what to expect? I'm reading that alot of folks have to break off the "pain" relievers that I have refused...I only take Neurontin and Piroxicam presently, which aren't working. Along with my headache, I have a tingly tongue. One neurologist says it isn't associated with my headache, Jefferson says it is, since it all came together. Will I be awake enough to use a laptop there, have visitors, eat normal food? I'm at a loss and appreciate any advice you can offer.
