I want to thank everyone for all the different ideas that were sent to me, unfortunately most have been tried and failed. I unfortunately may not be in the same finacial boat as most of you. After these last 6 weeks of 5 out of 7 days of constant CM's and missed several days of work, topped off by a $300 neurologist visit and a $1200 MRI & MRA, i am now on payment plans for both. I have 4 wonderful children that deserve more than my pain can suppress, and with no medical coverage, things like a UV light will be out of my ballpark. I cannot even make a return trip to the doctor for a refill of my prescription, until i pay off the original debt i owe him. So now i am reduced to supplanting a stronger pain medication with 1600mg of motrin and 4 tylenol when i fell an episode about to occur. I also understand that that is way to much ibuprofen to be taken daily but i just cant take it anymore. Please do not interpret this as a request for anything but please everyone understand that some people reading this or belonging to this newsgroup do not have the finacial gains to buy a 3 or 5 hundred dollar UV light or visit a neurologist when they pain in there head makes them wish they could remove their brain and stick it in a freezer for an hour. I like many others will continue to suffer until a few doctors understand that compassion instead of dollars can cure a patient or at least provide some relief by medication.
