Customer reply replied 6 years ago.

I am a 39 year old female w/high intelligence, raised in a wonderful family, and became a very successful woman. Four and a half years ago my symptoms began and gotten worse every month! Most Doctor's have told me it basically is in my head or it is stress. About a year ago I found a new Doctor, family friend who really new me and my family, he has helped in so many ways! Unfortunately, my symptoms have eally started to get worse - painful headaches in right eye, strange taste and numbness of lips and tongue were added to symptoms.

Meds:

Hydrocodone 10-500/every6hrs

Baclofen 10mg/3xdly

Depakote - 500/mg2xdly

Prednisone 20mg/6daypck

Xanax0.5/ @ bed

Bumetanide 2mg/1dly

Estrace 2mg

eyedrop for inflamation - not sure of name

 

Hope this helps! Only diagnosed w/small fiber neuropathy, last MRI or CT was about 2yrs ago. Eye Doctor recently saw some inflamation in the optic nerves maybe causing eye pain,blurred vision and pain.

 

Did go through infertility issues which led to many surgeries and four trys at Invitro ended w/hystorectomy. We adopted! Could those drugs(of course, as you know, many fertility drugs were used.)

 

Thanks,

Meg

Hi again...

Thanks for the detailed description...

Well looking at your history I can come up with several differentials that need to be ruled out before stress could be blamed... Here is a list of those differentials:

  1. Cervical Spondylosis
  2. Occipital neuralgia
  3. Trigeminal neuralgia
  4. Ocular migraine
  5. Viral infection
  6. Multiple sclerosis(less likely)

This list can further be cut short be clinical examination and relevant investigations...

I would suggest you get an MRI of your cervical spine done after consultation with a neurologist...

Untill then apart from the analgesics I would also recommend you use Tab Lyrica 75mg twice daily for better symptomatic relief...

I hope this information helps you...

Thank you...
