Another Damn Headache!

I have been lucky since I started the new dosage of the medicine for my trigeminal neuralgia (TN). I have had few headaches. With the Botox for my migraines and the addition of Verapamil and Oxcarbazepine for the TN, I have been doing pretty good and basically only having minor headaches on occasion, but God forbid I miss a dose of my medicines. I went to dinner with a friend on Friday night, and I completely forgot to take my nighttime meds. By Saturday night, I could feel the pain returning to the side of my face affected by the TN. When I woke yesterday morning, I was in a great deal of pain, and nothing helped throughout the day. I remembered to take everything yesterday and on Saturday, so I hope things will even out today. I had been enjoying being relatively pain free, so while I’ve had worse headaches than yesterday’s, the resurgence of pain after not having any this severe, I think made it all the worse. I just have to make damn sure that I don’t miss a dose again.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
