Hi again! Ok, so I got the repeat spinal tap today per the neurosurgeon himself and was not all that bad! The Doctor who did it 3 wks ago was horrible! However...my pressures are normal!! So, no spinal leak at sinus/ear and no blockage of spinal fluid at C5-C6 bulging disc and osteoarthritis!! Yeah! No surgeries for me!! I get to see the new/old neurologists next wednesday, I love him! He moved out of the state and recently moved back, he is good! Sooo, in the meantime the old neuro dr. Wanted me to try a low dose neurontin, I got the neurosurgeon to write it and I'll be starting it tomorrow. That will give it time to work a little before wed. Apparently, at this point in time the neurosurgeon thinks all my issues are a severe migraine complex. He's never had anybody as severe or odd as mine- again, yeah me! Lol! But, in any case - can start the neurontin and go from there for further med or meds- was waiting to do so until all tests were clear. Also, it'll be 30 days from last dose of paxil on the 11th, so if the serotonin syndrome is running it's course and causing this, it'll be over soon! Lost my job and insurance, but got a call today for a contract day shift job and it ends at the same time i can reapply for my old job I was told by admin of the program that they , "would love to have me back in good health-i did a great job!" Yeah!! It's all working ouit! Justt prayer the neurontin works and I can get back on my feet in a week or so!! Thanks for listening!! Hope this finds you all doing well! Amy
