My 16 year old son today is his birthday just saw the headache specialist...
I have not...but please let us know if this helps him. thanks,Kirk Bonanny
I have not heard of it. I am sorry he has NDPH but I hope he had a nice birthday.
Do your research and don't let any doctor pressure you or your child into taking drugs or getting procedures done. Docs and drug companies can experiment on us bc we're desperate. I've been hurt and abused a lot because I didn't stick up for myself (or even when I did...). Ask naturopaths what other things your son should take or do so that the meds don't destroy his body. Good luck.
We requested this after much research. If we would not have done so much research he probably would not have a NDPH diagnosis yet.
I too walked in your shoes Marie Nelson with my now 13yo daughter. Best and birthday wishes for your son and please keep us updated.
I've been on famciclovir (the active ingredient in famvir) for 2.5 months. I can't say I've had success yet, but it is definitely worth a shot. I haven't had any side effects at all.
Thank you. I sure hope it helps. He improved last summer. Down to a daily 2 then got another virus in October. Now ranges 6-8 but mostly 8 daily. Ugh.
Update. This did not help him. Now he is pharma free. Still in pain, but feeling better.
Sorry to hear it did not help but happy he is doing better without meds. Thanks for the update!
Xxxxxxx Yzzzzzz I just posted a lengthy update on the page as well.
