Constant headache since 2013. PMH significant for lumbar discectomy and subsequent spinal fluid leak. 7,000+ ft elevation relieves pain.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Headache began after having the stomach flu while traveling in June 2013. CT cisternogram and myelogram performed to determine potential CSF leak. No medication (Gabapentin, Topiramate, Amitriptyline, Botox, etc.) has provided relief of symptoms. Time spent at higher altitudes has provided almost complete resolution of symptoms.
