I saw my neuro. He said everything is normal, so serious things in the brain are ruled out now ... that's the good news ...

the bad news, he was pushing me to say EVERYTHING that i feel, he is very nice ... so i told him about that very little and very easy flank pain that goes to my testicles, along with the nausea and vomiting, he told me i'm pretty sure these are kidney stones, so i'm scheduled for a KUB x-ray ...

in the meantime, he requested more blood work, and prescribed me another NSAID, and this is the third type of NSAID that i take, surprisingly and interestingly, it worked! i really missed the no-pain feeling, it was really good :D it's Votrex

i hope it keeps working

what else?

i'll see him next saturday for the blood work and urinalysis.

regards,
Really glad everything is okay in the brain,whew,huh?I am wondering though about the kidney stone theory?unless you are having some really excruciating low back/flank pain which from your description,really does not sound like you are?i would be thinking more of an actual kidney problem itself,not just possible kidney stones.has any doc actually done any sort of bloodwork on your kidneys at all?this would be the best very basic way of at least seeing how your overall kidney functions are.your high BPs,headaches and fatigue,and of course the intermittant type of pain and where you describe it as being, could very well all be related to the kidney.the BPs and the kidneys kind of "play off" each other?the kidneys just play a really big part on what your BPs actually are at.i think you should request to have bloodwork done on the kidneys soon.this could reveal alot about what is actually causing all of your ongoing symptoms.Good luck and please keepus all posted on what you find out.Marcia

hey ... thanks for posting ...

yes, the pain is really easy, though, it irradiates from my right back side, along to my right testicle ... but it's so easy that i never thought of mentioning it to my neuro or any other doctor ...

anyways, i'm aware of the fact that the kidney has many things to do with the BP, so who knows?

so, when i saw him, he requested more blood work and urinalysis and kidney function analysis. i shall have the results by saturday, and tomorrow i will have the KUB x-ray ...

i think the NSAID stopped working, it didn't kill my headache today ... and the bad thing is that i'm thinking of getting one more pill ... one more to the dose specified by my neuro ... i don't want to do that ... so i will try pushing myself not to become dependent on the drug ...

thanks for caring, i will keep you updated ...

take care
just what type of gas plant do you work in? is there any and i mean any,chance that you could have possibly been exposed to some sort of "bad" chemical there/have they ever had any sort of a haz mat type leak situation there that you were possibly exposed to something?

just something to check into.ya know,the fact that everything came up 'normal" with your testing,i am a bit suprised that your neuro wants to move you on to a urologist,unless he has some specific reason/test in mind for you.There are meds out there made specifically for nausea,i am kind of suprised that your neuro hasn't mentioned one to you.at least you wont feel like tyou are going to puke 24/7,ya know?

having to be dependant on a pill for ten days or ten years or the rest of your life,is not the end of the world.my son(because of liver failure and tx)has had to be on multiple meds for many years,its just part of his daily stuff he does and no big deal.I too am on about five seperate meds just to try and control my overwhelming pain syndromes and to treat my brain aneurysm.if these improve your life in some way,it IS worth it,ya know?if my son decided he just didn't want to let meds rule his life anymore,he would be dead.they DO improve your quality of life and in some cases,allow you to actually live a normal life.

I know the thought of "something' having any control over you kinda sucks but you have to look at the lessor of the two evils,you know what I mean/If I went off my meds,I would be curled up in a ball in my bed and would never be able to leave it just from the pain and the horrid spasticity that came along for the ride when my spinal cord was damaged.it really is no biggie.

you might want to consider changing neuros.what prompted you to seek out a neuro for this problem to begin with?maybe the uro that your neuro wants to send you to will have some ideas on just whats up.obviously something is going on but unfortunetly,as you are finding out,its not always easy to pinpoint just what the problem is.i do know that feeling well myself.but you need to know what is causing your symptoms,espescially the nausea.vomiting all the time can cause its own set of problems,such as dehydration.make sure you are drinking alot of water thru out your day.

I hope you can find out the reason for you ongoing symptoms,also,ask your neuro for something for the vomiting.there are alot of good anti nausea meds availiable to you.please keep me posted,marcia

[B][I]This is a very good theory. Never thought of it. I will mention it to my neuro. Well, i'm not sure if that is too technical or not, but our gas plant receives "crude" natural gas, that comes from gas wells, it contains a very bad, toxic, deadly, and corrosive substance which is hydrogen sulfide (H2S, many people in my company died because of leaks). So we have to separate it from our feed and further process the "clean" gas. So the idea of a possible exposure to this gas can be the key solution, because the gas generaly contains hydrocarbons which are somewhat "friendly". I will discuss it with my neuro. For your information, when a human inhales this gas, it starts corroding the organs and damages the nerves. Exposure to high concentration of H2S results in sudden death.[/I][/B]

[B][I]well, he wants to refer me to a urologist for the flank pain, not for my current headache problem. So he still wants to see me from time to time. He prescribed me some meds for ulcers i think, because NSAID's can cause them, as a preventive measure. I will discuss it with him, because the way i described the nasuea didn't get his attention, i'm one of those patients who don't talk and don't ask, big mistake i know.[/I] [/B]

[B][i] i didn't mean what you are thinking of, what i mean by being "dependent" is being addictive to the drug. Anyways, obivously i will not, because the voltarine is not working, actually my headache is getting worse. I absolutely have no problem being on a drug for the rest of my life if that helps. And i'm sorry for your son. [/i][/B]

[B][i] i saw him because of my headache, which is like a pressure feeling more than a pain feeling. Sometimes it gets painful, but most of the time it's a strong pressure inside my head,it really annoys me, it disturbs me, but never made me stop working, but this time i'm thinking of having a week off because it's getting really bad this time. i also constantly feel my heart beats, sometimes they are painful but most of the time they are not. The urologist thing was because i told him about the flank pain, he wanted me to see a uro for this problem, but he still wants to see me from time to time. I'm scheduled for an appt in two weeks, apparently i will try to make it this week. [/i][/B]

thanks for caring marcia, you are the first and the only person in this world, besides my neuro who understands what i'm going through.

He is really nice, he understands and listens, he pushes me for everything. I swear i have never seen a doctor like him.

and i swear also i have never seen someone like you :)

thank you

Nasser
