Constant daily headache, at times debilitating, with pressure and pain including neurological symptoms such as tingling in extremities.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
After a bout of the what I believe was the flu, I developed a headache that has not left me for over 4 years. The headache is not ordinary. Specifically, it focuses on the front on my head along with with pressure behind my eyes with occasional neck pain. And it never goes away with everyday ranging from a level 5 to 10 randomly. There is no medicine, prescription, OTC, Cannibas or homeopathic that provides signs of relief. Diet changes, climate changes, geography changes have no effect on the type of day I will have. Over 30 prescriptions, a sinus surgery, 3 blood patches, multiple US cities and 25 doctors, homeopaths and specialists, I remain a medical mystery. Along with the headache, I have developed neurological symptoms such as tingling (ala ants crawling) in my extremities which worsens when clothing is over the area. The only thing the doctors claim is Lyme Disease, which many of us believe is a catch all for "medical mystery."
