1. no idea what type... either starts on the right just over my temple and goes over my head like a headband or starts in the back of my head on the right side with like a sledgehammer to the back of the head... and then sets in on the left side after about 10 minutes.
2. Treatments- tompamax (not helpful), propanol (nope), flexeril (nope), nortriptalyn (kind of), functional massage on neck.. breaks up scar tissue (helps), acupuncture (helps). I say all the above but yet I still have headaches, just not as bad. They are very detrimental to me... they are why my neurologist will still not let me return to work. When they get very bad, like when I did yoga the other day.. all brain fog and other various symptoms come back
3. In the last 5 months I have had about a 10 day period when the headaches were at about a 2.. those may have been some of the best 10 days! Other than that sorry to report, no relief.
The Start: MVA, t-boned, on 1-12-14 (my sons 5th birthday) and did not think anything of it.. my back hurt on site but everything else seemed ok. Lost about 10-12 hours from about 3 hours after the accident to the next day...Experienced terrible brain fog for over a month, plus intense headaches, nausea, dizziness, cognitive difficulties, disorientation, no short term memory, depression and just an overall hangover feeling daily.
Current Situation: I'm about 7 months in and my local neurologist has waived her white flag and therefore I am headed to Dallas to be seen (I have family there). The headaches are still daily. I have nausea, dizziness as well.
Drugs I have been on- Vicodin (off), Naproxen (off), proanolol (off), topamax (off), cataflam (off), Midrin (off), Flexeril (off) and now Namenda XR (off), Nortrptylin (off), Verapamil (off)
Therapy- Osteopath, Vestibular and balance therapy, fuzion/soft tissue massage, acupuncture
Drs- ER (no help), GP, Chiropractor, Neurologist and Osteopath
