I'M ANGEE a 38 y/o woman mother of 3 (19,18,14) i had a spinal fusion in 2004, hysterectomy in 2008, gastric bypass in jan 2009 ( loss of 130 pounds and 14 inches) In may 2010 i awoke with what felt like a migraine and it has not went away, it gets worse but never better. I have had an MRI that shows a disc bulge and bone spurs at the C7 level and minor bone spurs ( as dr puts it) after 3 cat scans he finally did a spinal tap on 8-26-10 and opening pressure was 22 and closing pressure was 12. he again played this off calling it only minor increase of pressure. I understand that there are others out there that have had higher, but for me this is important. In june my pcp started me on topamax and atenalol to stop any further headaches should we get this one under control however it has not gotten any better. now after the spinal tap results he has decided that i should add diamox to the mix of meds that i am taking, however the pharmacist says that these are meds that should not be taken together because they have a high risk of causing kidney stones. he says to take the diamox for 2 weeks and see how i feel then we will address the situation at that point. Am i wrong to be a bit concerned here? there has been no official diagnosis of PTC he just said that i have too much fluid around my brain and my spinal fluid pressure is slightly elevated. PLEASE HELP ME UNDERSTAND IF POSSIBLE. AM I MISSING SOMETHING?
