Ok folks its early days but here goes.
Ive had Chronic daily headache for 20 years, ive had everything from
Methysurgide ( this worked but is no longer made )
My tablet of choice for an attack is Imigran ( sumatriptan) I take about 6 to 12 a month to cater for mainly the daily headache that debilitates me and can turn into a Migraine....
Anyway im now on my 5th Botox volly and this doesnt work either. so this is what ive found
My father came with me on Holiday this year hes 83 and has a volly of tablets, i was on a course of Gabapentin which had made me feel ill and spaced out, i was sat in the airport loking green and as always he said here take something i have to settle your stomach, The name of the drug was cimetidine
I took it didnt feel any better and the holiday commenced, over the 2 weeks i took various imigran but totally stopped Gabapentin.
anyway i still had the tablets he gave me in the cupboard, i recently went for my 5th Botox jab and i also had bad acid, due to imigran etc. so on my way home i took a Gaviscon which settled me down. On getting hom i remembered the tablets my dad gave me and popped one. I then spoke to him and asked what the normal dosage was its 3 times a day with meals..
Guess what in 5 days my head as been totally clear...........
2 things either its his tablets and everything for the past 20 years has been stomach related to something or her Botox jabs actaully hit a nerve thats needs hitting.....im with the tablets
What ive also noticed is after ive eaten and feel tired i sometimes get one. or after breakfast...
So now im taking 1 in the morning 1 at lunch and 1 around 9PM but all i ca say is this is the first time outside of Methysurgide that my heads been free from the daily headache....
Ill keep you all updated as i progress this week and next.... but man ooo man what a find....
