First Post of 2006

Just before xmas, I met with the neurologist to see if the last course of treat was helping and to see if anything had changed. He would ask basic questions like 'what did you do last weekend' and not only did I not have a clue but I could not seem to focus on anything particular. Normally when I try to recall an event where specifics are few and for between I regress back to what happened on the days before and after. Usually this helps, not always with exact conversions but I at least I will recall talking with someone for the most part. While on Topamax everyday was like walking through fog. Thankfully, it has been discontinued as a course of treatment. My awareness has become clear, at least back to where it was prior to the days of the trial of Topamax. Strange how a medication works wonders for some and can make life more complication for others.
Now that I can think again I will be posting a lot more than I have in the past 6 weeks.
I'm glad that you got that straightened out, but I hope that doesn't mean that you don't have any preventive to help with the headaches/migraines and clusters. Best wishes, Paul.
No, thankfully I still have Propranolol(Inderal), Neurontin(gabapentin), celexa and the duragesic patch to help keep the cluster pain & frequency down to a minimum. Cheers
*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.*
