Late night

Friday, May 14, 2004

Since the night will probably be a long one I thought a video was in order for tonight. Noam Chomsky(I never knew he had a video). Love him or hate he makes you think and hopefully question the way things are. As it should be.
Anyways, my dr. and I are trying to lower(and off some completely) the doses of some of my meds. Its so hard for to find a happy balance of meds when dealing with chronic non-malignant pain. He reduced my Inderal(propranolol) down to 120mg from 160. Hopefully it'll minimize the lethargy without too much discomfort. Though all day it has felt like all the blood is rushing to my head. Kind of like being turned upside down for too long.
I shouldn't complain about meds being lowered. Most sufferers takes on average 5 years(just from chats and articles I've read. Could be longer or shorter. Your mileage may vary) to get any sort of relief. I've done alright in comparison. It did take 18 months to get some sort of relief other than an icepack.
But I'm ranting, hence my page, and I need to go to bed.

Medical terminology can cause confusion at the best of times. If there is a word you do not understand all you have to do is double-click on it and the definition will appear! Don't forget to drop me a line by email at with your comments, questions‚ recommended resources‚ concerns‚ & especially your experiences with clusters. Or come find me on my Facebook Profile to add me as a Friend. Whether you are a supporter‚ care-giver or sufferer. I would love to hear from you!

*Please do not use this information for self diagnoses. Writing about my experiences with chronic cluster headaches & epilepsy is a good outlet for me. Consult your Dr. with any kind of headache or chronic pain you may have. The 3rd party links on my site I have found to be a good resource to me over the past few years & dearly hope they will benefit you as well.*
