I HAVE NECK AND BACK PAIN ON LEFT SIDE THAT GETS MUCH WORSR THE MORE I AM UP. I NOW LAY DOWN 23 HOURS PER DAY (SOME OF THIS TIME IN A RECLINING CHAIR WORKING ON COMPUTER, THE REST LYING FLATTER.) THE ONLY MEDICATION THAT CONTROLS THE PAIN IS DIHYROERGOTAMINE MESYLATE INJECTIONS TWICE A DAY.
LONG STORY SHORT, I WAS IN AN AUTO ACCIDENT YEARS AGO (AGE 28). THERE SEEMED TO BE NO PROBLEM AT FIRST BUT OVER THE YEAR I STARTED TO GET HEADACHES ON THE LEFT SIDE. IN MY 40'S A DOCTOR TRIED DIHYROERGOTAMINE MESYLATE INJECTION. IT REALLY WORKED WELL HOWEVER I WAS TAKING THEM 2 TO 3 TIMES PER DAY. THE PROBLEM WENT AWAY FOR A FEW YEARS AND THEY CAME BACK THIS TIME CAUSING ME TO NEED TO LAY DOWN MOST OF THE TIME AND TAKE INJECTIONS. MRI SHOWED WHAT THEY SAID WAS A RUPTURED DISK. AFTER THE OPERATION I DID NOT NEED ANY DIHYROERGOTAMINE MESYLATE INJECTIONS FOR MONTHS BUT I'VE SLOWLY NEEDED THEM AGAIN.
I HAVE SO MUCH TO LIVE FOR, A GOOD BUSINESS WITH MY SON AND A GREAT FAMILY. I AM NOW 62 AND OTHERWISE AM IN GOOD HEALTH. I AM A SUCCESSFUL DESIGNER AND CONTINUE TO RUN MY BUSINESS ALTHOUGH EVEN MEETINGS ARE DONE WITH ME LYING DOWN.
