I called my migraine specialist yesterday after mom pushed me too thinking ok it takes a week and half to 2 weeks to hear back from them. The nurse called me back in half an hour after i left a message saying how its at unbearable go to ER levels pressure and pain where my head feels like its going to explode and i cant function and even go places or appointments i need too. She called back and said the Drs concerned and wanted to know more and what doses of lasix have i taken before for when i retained fluid and how much potassium i took with it and he wanted more details. She called back again a couple hours later and said he is positive its psuedotumor i have every single sign of it and got more info to make sure and said they corrected my lyrica dose at the pharmacy for me they had called in to strong of a dose by accident. When she called back the third time she said finish the round of steroids but in the morning start the lasix right away we have to get the pressure down and lasix is much safer than doing a brain shunt, less invasive. I start at once a day but if within a day or two if its not better i increase to twice a day at 40mg lasix and 10 of potassium. I hate lasix but its better than feeling like my heads going to explode. Its 3am now as i type this unable to sleep, but did sleep about 5 hours. Thats more than i been sleeping! My parents leave at 10am and wont be home until saturday or Sunday but i have friends that will check on me espeically my sponsor. This is so scary you guys, all this time we thought it was just plain old migraines......... Pays to get another opinion!
