I have been reading up on my husbands symptoms since the doctors have not been helpful. I'll start from the beginning. In the last five years, he had been having splitting headaches, headaches that would wake him up in the middle of the night. His doctor told him it was an inner ear infection and gave him medicine. Symptoms went away for a week, then came back worse. I took him to the ER when he started talking backwards to me one night and it turned out to be a brain tumour. After having the biopsy done and the tumour being benign, then neurologist has assued us that he should not be experiencing anymore symptoms. However he still has the headaches, mood swings and confusion. I was reading online and found out that it's possible that he has low serotonin levels, so I picked up 5-HTP for him and it has been helping. He is starting to think that he is the unluckiest person in the world. He also has been diagnosed with Crohn's disease about eight years ago, and has had ADD since he was a kid. Now, he is still getting the headaches. Tylenol 1, 2 or 3, doesn't dull the pain. After reading online, I see that he may have fm. Is there any other pain killers besides tylenol that help people who have fm?
