Hi everyone again, I hope this finds you all feeling better and closer to your "cure"! I have finally got a wonderful neurologists as I posted last time and we are finally pursuing a ct myelogram to attempt to find spontaneous spinal fluid leak or "leaks". That's the first step, if it shows nothing we go for the high tech mri cisternogram..I really hope not!! Also, of the 5 migraines I'm having, I am responding well to the verapamil, 80mg, twice a day for the hemiplegic ones. The daily one persists, but then so does the leak potentially. I got a C2,C3 nerve root block and epidural injection of steroids today...let me just say -OUCH!! I shoulda took a valium before I went! However, the pain doctor is the best! (I used to work with him). So, once I was really numb, after he got to the site of course-it was ok. If it works, that will eliminate one more migraine potentially, go back for another on may 3rd, I will remember y valium! Lol! No more blood patches, got one that worked great for a day!! Until after we find the leak, then we get to address the need for further testing to. Find out why I did it in the first place, sigh...momma's tired and sick of doctor's and I was a nurse (until I got fired in march-for being out sick too long at a new job...). So, all in all progress is being made slowly and I pray non stop! Keep me in your thoughts and prayers, not sure how much more I can take...amy jo
