I'm new here. Just looking for some support. I've been to the ER twice this month and my primary doctor doesn't know what's up, she's referred me to a neurologist. This daily pain is so severe but instead of wanting to sleep, I just get restless. It's taking it's toll on my job and on my whole family. It doesn't help that I am bipolar and one of the pre headache symptoms I seem to get is hypomania. I can't tell you how many times I've played dress up with the kids and had a dance party only to find myself writhing in pain a half hour later. My psychiatrist thinks that I may be having partial seizures. I was diagnosed with migraine with aura when I was 10 and no further testing was done. My blood pressure sky rockets to the 200s over around 130 when the pain is at its peak, but there is constant daily pain with nausia and vision impairment. I'm so tired and depressed. Anyone else dealing with this? I work at home and don't have many friends, I hate to join with questions instead of support, but any info anyone has would be amazing. Thank you
Please help. I am looking for an excellent lymphoma specialist in the nj/nyc area for my mother, 69 years old. There are large growths everywhere. They found it Saturday. I am trying not to completely break down and lose hope.

But how can we stay positive when the cirrent political climate is going too far. Not everyone can manage their pain with OTC meds. This is just getting ridiculous. I read another story of a pain clinic being forced to shut down and a man killed himself because...
