New Daily Persistent Headache began November 13, 2017. The pain range has been 6-9 and never-ending since that time. Have been treated at Mayo Clinic in Family Medicine, Neurology, Infectious Diseases, Physical Therapy, Urology, Cardiology, Audiology, Internal Medicine, Employee and Community Health, Integrated Community Specialties, Opthamology (sic), Radiology, and perhaps a few other departments I can't recall. I have received acupuncture from the Mayo Clinic and from a private practitioner. I have received chiropractic care and ultrasound. I have tried a cephaly device through the Clinic Store.. I have had a lumbar puncture to test my spinal fluid. I have had cortisone injections to block my occipital (sic) nerves. I have had two dental exams and an exam from a dentist specializing in TMJ/head and neck pain. I have had my furnace checked for carbon monoxide. OTC medications have included tylenol, aleve, ibuprofin, allegra, aspirin, salonpas patches, pseuphedrine, dietary supplements, cremes/lotions. Prescription medications have included tylenol with codeine, neurontin, doxycycline, several different antibiotics, nortryptiline, cymbalta. Have tried hot showers, cold showers, ice packs, heating pads. I practice mindfulness, muscle relaxation, biofeedback. I practice principles of cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, rational emotive therapy, social rhythms therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy. I practice the principles of Emotions Anonymous. I pray and turn my life over to God every morning. I have missed church, community education programs, symphony concerts, funerals, parties. I have not traveled outside my home state of Minnesota for over a year. My quality of life has suffered greatly. My wife's quality of life has suffered greatly. The only time I do not feel a headache (all over, tingling, pulsing, reverberating, pounding, dull, aching pain including teeth and ears and eyes accompanied by sound and sight sensitivities) is when I am asleep, so I sleep — a lot. I am aware I may just be starting out on this journey. Any suggestions/recommendations would be most gratefully received. Thank you. Oh, have been approved for medical cannabis, too. No results.
