Hello, My name is Giridhar, I live in Innsbruck Austria. I have chronic headache since May 2017 almost everyday. Symptoms include headache all over the head, nausea, occasionally vomiting, blackouts, occasionally twitching of the body, redness in the eye.

I consulted my GP, neurologist, ophthalmologist and underwent through a lot of tests.
-Native MRI – normal, no signs of tumor nor thrombosis
-X-ray – normal, no signs of sinusitis
-Blood test – normal blood sugar and all normal blood cell count, no infection
-Urine test – Normal
-Lumbar puncture – normal cranial pressure and no signs of meningitis
-Eye and Dental check – Normal

Treatment included
-Diclofenac, Naproxen – as pain medication
-Eletriptan, Flunarizine – as migraine treatment
-Diazepan, orphenadrine, tizanidine – as muscle relaxants
-methyl prednisone – to counter act the side effects of all above pills
-Amitryptyline, Duloxetine – as antidepressants
Along the cranio sacral physiotherapy, Reiki treatment.

But none of the above mentioned treatments seem to work so far. Any suggestions or help would be highly appreciated. cry

Welcome to the forum.

I suggest first that you go to a major medical center and see a "diagnostic specialist". I went to John Hopkins and finally was diagnosed with: Trigeminial Neuralgia, Hemicrania Continue, Cluster Headaches, A-typical face pain.

Also damage to nerves in the back of my head/neck from childhood abuse/trauma

I am currently taking Topomax 250mg/day and 15mg baclofen, my pain level is being held at an averavge of 5-7 per day, rising to 9 or 10 by night.

I am on my 8th neurologist since 2006, I only want the pain reduced to a 3-4 manageable level. I have no grand illusions of ever being pain free again.

I would like to try weed, but not legal yet in my State. So doc is trying to come up with another med to work with topomax. This works well to control the TN.

I hope something of this helps you.
