I have read through a couple of threads and thought I should tell my story. I am a 31 year old woman living in Zimbabwe. For the last 5 years I have suffered from incredible headaches. After being through litterally countless medications, Tramadol, Doxypol, Over the counter drugs aswell as diclofenac injections, I have finally found a Professor of Neurology who is actually taking me seriously. I am due to be admitted into hospital for Ketamine Treatment. I have been diagnosed with Benign Raised Intracranial Pressure Or also known as Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension. Finally after so many years of unbelievable pain, we are getting somewhere. I read a thread written by Ben and found his post to be very encouraging. Which lets face it, anyone who has experienced this kind of chronic pain would do anything to just make it stop!! And so thank you to Ben / korbnep for giving me hope.
I sincerely hope we all at some point, rather sooner than later can hopefully live pain free and happy, active lives. Good luck and God Bless you all.
