For the past 7 years and every single day, I have been suffering from the worst headaches – Under the care of Neurologists (5 in total) 2 Pain Consultants and the trial and error of a cocktail of meds and invasive procedures: -
Indomethacin Propanolol Atenolol Pizotifen Gabapentin Amitriptyline
Clonidine Robaxin Clonazepam Topiramate Verapamil
Duloxetine Lidocaine Patches Lamotrigine Mirtazapine Oxygen 100%
Introvenous Lidocane Infusion,
Greater Occipital Nerve Block,
Cervical Facet Joint Block ,
Accessory Nerve Block,
Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block
Botox Injections over the Occiput and cervical region
Intravenous Dihydroergotamine Infusions
I've had 2 MRI Head Scans and Cervical Spine Scan - all clear.
Along with all this conventional treatment and medication I’ve had in and around 300 types of alternative treatments, ranging from a Chiropractor (twice a week for 2.5 years) Reflexology, Acupuncture, Chinese Medicinal treatments, Cranial Osteopath, Meditation, Hypnotherapy.
Eventually a friend suggested I have my B12 tested – it came back as deficient. Had the loading doses from my GP but have been SI since August 2016. The co-factors I have been taking are Folic Acid 5mg, Vitamin B Complex, Spatone liquid iron, Vitamin D2 2000iu, Triple Magnesium Complex 400mg & Vitamin K2 MK-7 100mcg.
In a previous post, I had thought the 'no let up' of pain may be something to do with Pregabalin I take, as the headaches are actually getting worse instead of better but I’m now beginning to wonder if it could essentially be the some of the co-factors?
I would really appreciate any enlightenment on this thank you.
