This pain is killing me, please someone help
« on: 06/02/2010 21:03:42 »
Since yesterday afternoon, I've had this horrible sharp stabbing pain on the back of my head on the left side. It keeps coming and going like someone is stabbing me about five times a minute. I went to the docter, the ER (CT is clean) and tried three different medications including morphine. Nothing helped. I don't know when I'll be able to see a chiropractor next since I'm out of town. I'm sitting here crying because it hurts so bad and nothing is helping.
Does this sound familiar to anyone? The ER doc thought it might be neuralgia of some kind. I'll try anything at this point. DS can have baby food because if this pain doesn't stop I'm going to throw myself out a window somewhere.

Sounds similar to trigeminal neuralgia ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trigeminal_neuralgia
Which can be treated with a generic drug Carbamazepine, (a.k.a. Tegretol), the dose is slowly increased over a period of days/weeks, (and if stopped should be tapered off over a similar period to avoid a backlash which can occur with sudden withdrawal).

PS don't bother with chiropractic: it's quackery and could even make matters worse.

[ PPS your pseudonym could discourage non-Aryans from offering you assistance ].

Who/what is DS?

I agree with the comment above that chiropractic = quackery.

And I agree with the comment above that you'll get more help by changing your name from AriannaNation...which will only arouse disgust and hostility in certain quarters.

"BenevolentJewess" would be an improvement.

If you're serious about "throwing yourself out a window", and it seems that you are from INDIA, here are some resources to consider SERIOUSLY:

The fact that AriannaNation postponed their suicide to add a link to their post for an acne treatment demonstrates they are a stealth-spammer: who has copied the plea for help from another forum and posted it here under their pseudonym, then added the spammy acne link a few days later.

Demografx please don't discourage this neo-Nazi spammer from jumping out of a window.  :)

[PS the Indian IP address is probably a proxy, i.e. Adolf is not in India]

RD, thanx for the humor, it's good post-surgical rehab for me!

But there does seem to be a lot of Adolf-connection in India!

Also, it's not only her IP address that is from India, but it's also her email address, yahoo.in

Hey, I just looked for her in the directory at 11:16 PM PST and she's gone! Banned? Self-destructed???

Yep, banned. Case Closed.

I cannot tell a lie guvnor. Was me as done 'er in.

"She" was a bot, or a person, that was cross pollinating posts between lots of different forums. It's quite possible the name had no significance to those involved. Doubt it would have any significance in India. Unfortunately around these parts, it does have a lot of significance, more's the pity.
