MY 16 YEAR OLD SON WAS DIAG. LAST JUNE WITH lYME DISEASE AND HAS BEEN ILL EVER SINCE. HE HAS SEVERE HEADACHES THAT LAST FOR 4 DAYS, VOMITING, STOMACH PAIN, HAS HAS CAT SCANS, MRI, SPINAL TAP, BLOOD WORK, ALL NORMAL. HE HAS SEEN NEUROLOGIST AND PERSCRIBED TOPOMAX 50MG DAILY, AND INTERNIST, PERSCRIBED PREVACID. THIS IS GIVING LITTLE OR NO RELIEF. WE NEED HELP. WHERE DO I TURN NEXT? HE SLEEPS ALOT AND IS VERY ACTIVE WHEN HE FEELS WELL. WE HAVE A FAMILY HISTORY OF MS, HEART DISEASE, DIABETES, CANCER AND AN AUNT PASSED FROM AN ANURISM. HE HAS BEEN CHECKEED FOR ANYTHING WE CAN THINK OF. HIS SINUS ALSO SHOWED NORMAL ON THE CAT SCAN. CAN ANYONE SUGGEST A SPECIALIST FOR US OR HAVE AN IDEA WHAT COULD BE CAUSING THIS?
