Admitted to hospital in august as thought had viral meningitis but after lumbar puncture they deduced it was most likely I hadn't and after numerous courses antibiotics (my crp was 144) and scans etc the neurologist diagnosed 'chronic migraines' as I am constantly experiencing at best numbness to left sign of face and pressure and headache and then to say lock me in a dark room and leave me alone type of headache. This is a companies with dizziness and vomiting and generally feeling like a train has hit me at 100 miles an hour. I have started taking topriamate working up gradually from 25mg a day to 100 mg a day. I have been on 100mg a day for just over a week now and the frequency is not as severe but I am still getting them. Any one offer any advice own experience? I have been unable to work since August as I am a teacher but hoping to go back soon as long as medication is on track. Many thanks.
