hi there everyone, i am hoping someone can help me! i have been suffering with constant headaches for the past 7 months. they tend to flucuate all the time, but they never go. i have been to my G.P. so many times over the past 7 months. they started off by giving me antibiotics and treating me for sinusitis which didnt work. they then tried me on propanolol, this made my blood pressure crash to 90/40 but still had the headaches. i then got referred to a neurologist, i had an MRI scan and an ESR blood test. both of these came back clear. the neurologist put me on gabapentin for the headaches which my G.P. increased 3 times cos they were not working. i have tried codine, diclofenac, paracetamol, brufen and asprin amongst other over the counter tablets. for the last two weeks i have been experiencing dizziness and sickness. my balance is terrible, i can be standing upright and still manage to fall over, i constantly walk into door frames and stumble. i have had my eyes tested and have perfect vision. my G.P. put me on stemitol recently, but this doesnt seem to be helping the sickness and dizziness. does anyone have any suggestions as i am starting to lose my mind!!! i dont drink anymore, as the alcohol makes my head worse. i drink plenty of water throughout the day! please someone help!!
