Well it's been almost 2 months since I started the diamox after being diagnosed with (acquired) chiari 0. It's helped a lot. Prior to starting it, I had a headache every day since the end of December. I now get one like once to twice a week (prolonged). I was also prescribed fiorcet for pain, but I don't find that it helps much when I do get the headaches. The hearing in my left ear has also returned somewhat. The diamox seems to be relieving pressure inside the skull enough to let that happen! I am very happy about this. :)
Recently though, (past cpl weeks), I've been getting these sharp stabbing pains on the left side of my head that do not last but a few min. They will happen several times a day. They are bad enough to stop me in my tracks until the pain passes. My neck still hurts too, and I'm also feeling pain on my scalp? It's so tender, I don't even want to wash/comb my hair and wearing a ponytail is excruciating.
I'm not sure what to make of this so I've called both TCI and my local neurologist to see what they think, waiting for a return call.
Overall, I am pleased with how the diamox has helped and I hope it continues. I am very happy I got to get in to TCI and am finally feeling some relief.
