At last report, my Summer was a debaucle, frequent, massive attacks that scoffed at oxygen....cut my vacation short, because I ran out of O2. I was trying neurontin, and it exacerbated the attacks, switched to nortryptaline, which did the same. I wa on 2 Amerge daily, one-half in the morning, one-half in te afternoon, and one at night. No real help. When I went in to the doc, I was shaking,anxiety-ridden,and out of ideas. We decided that it was too much Amerge, and too much everything else. Cut back to lithium and indocin, with Amerge only as needed. Oh, yeah, he found I had a sinus infection on my "opposite" side, and started antibiotics. Thankfully, I've been virtually pain free for a few weeks, with just a few attacks that O2 kills in short order. Problem now is "just" the sinus infection that won't go away. I go to ENT Dr. tomorrow. THAT I can handle!
