I qualify for numerous education, clinical research and other grants, due to over eleven documented physical disabilities. I am in chronic pain every hour of every day. Abhorring negativity, and classified as a never smoker, non alcoholic beverage drinker, I eat an extremely healthy lifestyle, no fat, no carbonated beverages, soy silk, homemade smoothies, no meat, luna bars, greasy food disgust me, eating approximately 1800-2400 calories per day, I weigh around 142. That said, I have Multiple Sclerosis, IBS, (which I believe goes with the territory) have been incontinent for over eight years, have a spinal cord injury, and am nonambulatory. Simply put, I keep a positive attitude at all times, detest smoke an keep mentally busy all day. Having tried four migraine meds, and five incontinent pills, none of them work for me. Soo I just deal with it, wear three depends, a poise pads and am a recluse. My question is what to do about my bitching migraines, as I take topamax no since I had an MS related seizure two years ago.
First, let me state that your address is the longest one I have ever seen on this Forum. If you have been reading other posts on this Forum, then you may have noticed the discussion on chronic spinal pain, headaches and the possibility of neurotrophic infections (infections that target the nervous system).
The types of infections that I am referring to are also implicated and found often in IBS and MS. You and your physician should consider looking into the possibilty that you may have one or more chronic infections that we find often in chronic spinal pain, such as Mycoplasma species and Chlamydia pneumoniae, among other possibilities. You can find out more about such infections on our website, www.immed.org
I am not stating that this is your only problem or only consideration, but if you have one or more of these infections, they could be causing a lot of your complaints.
