I hate that you’ve had a set back. and you do sound like you’re having a hard time trying to figure out what to do. i was just reading the downloadable PDF Headache 2008 that you posted elsewhere and i noticed, again, NSAIDs being listed among preventatives. Then i read here that your daughter knows to push Motrin and fluids. Why would NSAIDs help her dizziness - do they really work in a preventative way?
The woman who did the Puma work was a friend of a friend. All my friend kept telling me was that it was really hard, a lot of work, and had to do with looking at a lot of dots. She was going to get me some specific information about it and get back to me. If i don’t hear from her soon i’ll leave her a message. I know she was in really bad shape, bedridden, had to be driven to Chicago to do this (didn’t do it by DVD), but she’s great now. Yea, I’m really interested to hear more about what she actually did. i’m willing to look at dots.
Maybe i ought to get that Puma DVD, and titrate up, like you’re doing. I’ll take it out of the box and put it on a shelf. After a week, to allow my system to stabilize, i’ll put it in the DVD player. If that goes okay, i’ll titrate up and have my husband watch it, etc, etc
Your daughter sure sounds spunky. Would she watch it for us?!
I hope you don’t mind my teasing - it’s a dire situation and i don’t mean to make fun. It’s just that this entire thing is so crazy. It feels especially bad when you know you’re at your limit of benzo. I liked it better when I knew that if things got really bad, I could add a little.
And please, do not watch that DVD if you think it will make you worse. I sure am glad that you didn’t watch it just before having this relapse.
Regarding the Zoloft. It helped me, but it didn’t cure me. If i had to do it over again, from what I hear, from Hain and others, I would have asked for a low dose of Effexor.
You take care and don’t stress about that DVD.
P.S. I’m glad your daughter got home safe and sound. you don’t suppose you got a post-stress migraine?
