My new neuro got to see me totally break down
in the examining room after waiting in her office
for close to 2 hours with a headache and stomach
cramps caused from the indocin I was on at the
time. After realizing that I had to stop taking
the indo and knowing that is was effective therapy
in treating CPH, I was at the end of my rope mentally. I honestly thought that when she said
she would be right back, I thought she was going
to get a syringe to sedate me. Thats how bad I was. But she came back with a box of tissues. I told her I wanted to try Celebrex and she was
reluctant to give it to me since she had never prescribed that for any type of headache. She asked me if I had ever considering suicide and to
be honest I told her yes I had but I have a 6 year
old daughter and the pain I would cause her for
the rest of her life would be worse than the pain
I had now. I think our doctors need to see how
much this affects our lives and I'm not talking about just the pain in our heads. I was actually
happy afterwards that she saw me break down like
that. She did prescribe the Celebrex and so far
the results have been good. I still have the headaches but they are less frequent. She said she
will bring the information of Celebrex being effective in treating CPH to her next neuro meeting to share with the other doctors. I know there has to be more people out there reading this
that think they have CH but could possibly have
CPH. Go to the Headache Links to the left and scroll down to read about CPH. You just might save
yourself years of being misdiagnosed.
