Hello I'm new to this forum and hope someone can help reassure us. My son has been in and out of hospital for the past month now due to headaches now for the past month, poor balance and walking and sometimes slurred speech.
He had an MRI which was clear and they now think its migraines. Hes been on 40 mg of propanolol for one week now and still having headaches which i am giving him 6 hourly ibruprofen for??? Not sure if that's right especially after 4 weeks of it ???? He's still very wobbly with legs giving way and slurred speech especially when he's more tired.
Is it usual to have these symptoms and for this amount of time? Have you found the propanolol has helped the balance and co ordination symptoms or is there another medication to help?
He's now missed 4 weeks off school and has gone from a very fit and energetic boy to being housebound and not able to do anything. This is all new to me and obviously very worrying. So any help or advise would be very much appreciated as his clinic appointment is not for 4 weeks now.
