Hi Everyone,
I just found this forum. I spoke with my Dr. begging for something else to help with my constant headache. I've had it for over 10 weeks straight with other strange symtoms: pain in left side of face, slight numbness, tingling in part of body-stuff like that. I'm still waiting for the results of the EEG I had yesterday morning. But, the Dr. told me on the phone today the CT show bone overgrowth on the left side of my skull. He said this could explain my headache but he would talk to me about it in a week at my appointment that's set for Friday. Then he will have my EEG results. What? a week. Talk about leaving a girl hanging!!! Overgrowth in my skull? That doesn't sound good and now I wonder for a week what the heck that means. Do you guys think this means I have Paget's? Is there something else? I would appreciate any help. I'm a little bit scared 37 year old, wife, mother of three, and business owner, who hasn't been to work in two weeks and needs relief. Thanks!
