I see a neurologist that has prescribed multiple meds and ran several test( MRI's, catscans, lumbar punctures showing excessive pressure, i've been given shots in the back of my head,and seen a neurosurgeon) after that and my other doctors I have to see my visits are gone. My doctor's have asked for extension on my medicaid and I am denied because they say it's not life threatening. I am on 14 different meds some of which I take up to 3 x's a day. I have a 7 yr. old son whom is scared to death because he sees me passing out and hitting the floor. I wear special sunglasses inside and outside I walk w/ acane and still fall . I've had to move back home w/ my mom because I can't work. I have been pumped full of INSAIDS and steroids. I've tried herbal remedies, aromatherapy, accupressure, massage etc. I'm on topamax, cyproheptadine, potasium, lasix, flonase, oxycodone, tofranil, gabapentin, lamotrigine, vaium, promethizine, cetrizine, singulair, omeprazole and ibuprofen. My doctor has tried other meds and I have allergies to penicllin,sulfa and asprin. What more can I do?
Do you even know what all those meds are for?? That is alot of medication. First all make sure you educate yourself well. Have you tried to get help thru the state of MN. for you medical? I am so sorry to here of all the pain you are in and why do you keep passing out. Is it because of some of the med you are on? I do not even know you and i am afraid for you. Please educate, educate educate
