For the last couple of months or so, I've been trying-with and without medical help(shrooms), to find a preventative that is helpful. I'm chronic, and have been on lithium and indocin for some time. I was also on Verapamil, but it quit working well, so I quit that, and tried Neurontin, which made matters worse, so I got off that. I tried Nortriptyline, which "caused" CHs every 45 minutes at night. I take Amerge, which usually is helpful.
My weird symptoms include sinus-like blockage on my non-affected side. Along with that has appeared very strange and unpleasant smells and tastes. Very odd. Also, since tapering off of the nortriptyline, I have periodically felt 30-to-60 minute waves of nausea, jitteriness, and anxiety. Light-headed. I currently am taking the lithium, indocin, and Amerge. None of these are new. I am familiar- and accustomed to- the tremors associated with lithium usage, and the jitteriness is different than that.
After battling these CHs for about 10 years now, having new symptoms is a bit unsettling. Any ideas, anyone? Thanks a lot.
