First of all I am 59 years young and I have never had a headache in my life so possibly this board it not entirely appropriate? However, I am currently waiting to meet (2nd time) with a neurologist for benign essential tremor which has brought an abrupt and total end to my lifelong secretarial career (medical and legal btw - bit ironic). Until last night I was taking Propranolol - no noticeable benefit and this has been switched to Topiramate 25mg at bedtime. This drug appears to be mainly prescribed for treating migraine and epilepsy and that definitely does not appear to apply to me although another mentioned side effect being weight loss would be welcome. There was a time when I could hide my problem by using key strokes on a pc but those days are gong forever and now I simply cannot control a mouse. Just wondering if anybody out there has tried anything else or has any views about medicinal cannabis? Or has any questions I can fire at consultant 16/02 or doc due to see again Wed. or any opinions in general. First diagnosed 2008, seems to have become progressively worse of late, balance shot to bits, 2 recent falls, voice also affected. Have joined group on Facebook but this is USA based, I am Dorset UK and haven't sniffed out any local groups/individuals to me.
