I've sent 2 messages to my neurologist. Her assistant contacted me yesterday and said my Neuro is out of the office and would get back to me if she stopped by. If not, I would hear from her when she got back in. My pain is getting worse. The headache is manageable, but my eyes seem to be getting worse. They are about a 4 or 5 right this second, but they go up and down. I can't tolerate light well. I had started feeling pain a couple months ago, saw my optometrist and everything was fine. Since the headaches had started, he recommended seeing my neuro again. That started my trip into Medville again that I had spoken of in my last post. Now I'm only on Topamax. Anyway, I saw my NO 2wk ago and no active paps, but no venous pulsations. She wasn't concerned. I seem to have gotten worse. Problem is, I don't know if its the meds, the headache, or if the paps is really back. All in all, I hate to keep running to the doctor. Do I call my NO and make the almost hour trip into the medical center to get checked out with her? Do I call my optometrist, make the 10 minute trip to him to have a quick once-over for him to tell me once again that my eyes look fine? Do I wait to hear from my neuro? I don't know what to do. I feel like I'm falling apart. Something needs to give soon, because I don't know how much longer I can take Topamax. For one, it obviously is not helping, and for two, the depression is really getting to me.
