Hi! It worked!!! For the first time since july I am not nauseaous and my head pressure is tolerable and I can see clearly!! Yeah!! If you want my signature, ask now-i'm famous! ****! 1 in 50,000 develop spontaneous spinal fluid leak...that would be me, of course... But, yeah!! It's better and now I can deal with the rest of my migraines soooo much better!! I hope this finds you all doing well! Amy

That's great!! . I was worried and yeah that is pretty uncommon. I'm sorta mad that had you WALKING around with a spinal leak though for what was it, weeks on end. But I am glad that it is patched up now. Has there been anymore progress with your other issues?

Be Well,

HemiL

Hi Hemil! Thanks for the concern! Good to hear from you! Sigh, ok-i've had the spontaneous spinal leak since july-but no one believed me-kinda standard...the "other" migraines are responding well to the increased blood pressure medication and no further "other" meds for migraines. I am not to ever ever take pain meds or any triptans (imitrex,etc)...because it could cause a stroke-yeah me! I'm scheduled for the cervical block on the 19th. Also, I've been told my ssi application process is going smoothly and my medical information provided is "excellent". (At least I know how to do something right!) In any case, I'll be financially ok soon enough and I can go back to work at my pace and actually take care of myself for once! So, how are you?? Have you tried the butterbur herbal supplement for your migraines?? My neuro loves it! Again, thanks for the concern! Take care yourself! Amy
