It maybe do not sound like it is something so much to make a post about. But today, all day (it is almost 10pm now), it is first day I have not had no headache at all since early in October. Maybe finally the medicine for that finally start to catch up and work some. Now I am just sore from the back, but it is so good to be celebrating like with no headache, I just wanted to say it here!

Hi Andrei, glad you got rid of the headache, did you find out what is wrong? One of the new guys has Fibromyalgia, that may be what you have.

I wish you the best.

I do not have one so far today neither! My back still is hurting, but I know that will go away, it is little better then it have been this week, I could sleep a little on my side last night before it start to hurt again. But this is all day yesterday and so far today without the headache! Maybe it is finally going away.

Lostcowboy, what was causing it, it was called arrteritis (I am maybe not spelling right), it is the blood vessels in that part of my head that have imflammation, and the first medicine they try for it just not help, and even this one did not work so good until they make it bigger dose of it. I am just very glad now it seems is working. Thank you.

Andrei, Congragulations!

I'm healing now, and I wasn't sure I would.

I'd had fibromalgia as a complication from Lymes Disease. I had a severe case and was bed rested for almost 3 mo. Its felt like i was dying with my symptoms being: Vertigo, swollen joints, huge nodes (lymphtic) throughout my entire body, and a chronic cephalgia or cephelodinea- fancy term for headache. The head ache was so severe in the back of my head and uppper neck that i thought that i had meningitis
-turns out that wasn't the case thankgod, But it was theorized that later that it could have been a case of aseptic (non pathogenic) menengitis at least the syptoms present that way, with a combination of severe sinusitus

any way, to make a very long case history short; I had an unnoticed until spiraling-out-of-control-bacterial infection. And the Drug i owe my salvation to is Biaxin
-a powerful antibiotic (2 accually combined).

I was on the highest dose for a two month regiment; 1000mgs, twice dalily.

I guess i'm begining to ramble, dont kno if this helps or not but might not be a bad idea to get checked out and have some blloods drawn-tell them To do a CBC (complete blood count)-its better to campare these results from a previous range, but no critical. Look for raised eosinophils (special type of leukocyte(white blood cell) that can indicate presents of parasitic infection, or alergic reaction. The allergic reaction could be from bacteria or Fungi that can produce very potent toxins. in fungi- Mycotoxins, can reak hovac on one's immune system

hope you get and feel better

I know how you feel, I suffer with 'cluster headache' - although the 'ache' part is a lie, it's pain!

But I have been free from them now for exactly a year to the day, I just checked my diary and I couldn't believe it.

Living with physical pain is something we can do without, I hope your pain stays away.
