Lizzie,
 
 
 
With pain, I think the more we do to control it with chemicals, the more we lesson our chances of being pain free.  Certainly, chemicals have their use, and they can be amazingly effective.  However, the moment you start using multiple (and possibly conflicting) prescriptions, you lose all ability to determine what is causing your pain.  In fact, at that point, you tend to escalate your use of prescriptions to cover all the new symptoms produced by the medications.  In this state, it is too damn easy to become, usually unknowingly, quite dependant on the meds.  It makes you believe that stopping any or all of them will lead to only more pain, when in fact this 'pain hump' is the only way out of the hell that you live in.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
Fubar, I am med free also and have been for years. Except for 02 and imitrex injections when it gets bad....
episodic, with long remissions, average 1 two month  cycle every other year.
 
What you said is so true about the use of meds to act on the new symptoms that are produced from the old meds that you were using to act on the new meds........
    Hell, We Are Guinea Pigs for these doctors. I sure hope they are learning as much as we are about this hell that we go through.
 
Lizzie, I hope you find releif for your headpain no matter what it may be. Merry Christmas to All Smiley   ............andy
