I have chronic pain, and rely mainly on advil for relief when I need. I've been told not to take it for more than 2 weeks a month, otherwise I'll get rebound headaches...
I was given one drug for headaches which worked great to relieve the pain, but caused horrendous stomach pain (it was a tricyclic drug, cannot remember the name), then I was prescribed gabapentin, which I have not taken because we are actively trying to have a baby, and I have had enough troubles, and cannot imagine adding in possible birth defects....
Feb 24, 2012 - Slipped on a large puddle of ice at work, hitting the back of my head. No loss of consciousness, so I assumed I'd be back at work within a few days. I was wrong.
When resting, symptoms are low. With exertion, I still suffer from fatigue, migraines, vision problems, problems thinking or reading, troubles sleeping, issues finding or getting words to my mouth when the headaches are bad, tinnitus, and thyroid issues which I think are due to the concussion. Seen one specialist, and now a few others through insurance review of my case. Hoping for further treatment.
