Last 2-3 years I’ve had a few episodes of aura without headache. So last year I had 4 separate bouts of flu like symptoms with fever. Then in December 2016 I have a horrible tension style headache. This headache has turned chronic with muscle tension in the back of the head and similar sansations in my face. I’m refered to a neuro
8 months later I’ve had an mri, X-ray, cortisone/epidural injections in my neck, physical therapy, numerous medications including triptans, memantine, neurontin, muscle relaxers, pain killers, anti inflamitory drugs, the list goes on.
Today I have very little traditional headache. I have small daily bouts of tension in my neck head and face. Daily however, I’m feeling constant lack of cognative ability and balance daily. My vision gets pretty blurry at times and my ears have been ringing loudly and steadily and consistantly for over almost 2 months. My neuro has put me on temporary disability as my mental function has diminished significantly and I’m losing my ability to drive. I’m a 42 year old male married, who’s about to lose my job with a 3 year old daughter.
My neuro is at a loss and is in the process of doing all my MRI’s and other tests over again.
