Trying to find answers: Husband developed headache January 06, collapsed March 06 (it was finally diagnosed in Dec 06) by new Dr. as Addisons Crisis. Has been on medications for addisons since December 06 and seems to have it some what under control. Blood pressure only sits around 105 now. Though he still sleeps 14 hours each night and take shis medications regularly he does not seem to be recovering at all. I don;t know if the headache is a side effect of the addisons or something entirely different. He is only 48 years old.

He has had the same pain in the back of his head since the beginning, no medications including pain management injections to the site have eased the pain. Between the addissons and chronic pain, I have not been able to get any answers. Dr said the pain is in the occipitol nerve.
Twice now he has been treated for serious bacterial infections and they can't figure out why.

Our lives are been destroyed by the pain he is in.

Any insight would be GREATLY appreciated>

Anxious wife who loves her husband!
