Mine's is a strange case!

I had an attack of facial paralysis at the age of 13. I had undergone many treatment and taken strong drugs to get a cure though the effect is still visible. Later at the age of 18 I got a stroke of migraine an after two years of severe pain during which I had continous pain throughout the day on either side of my head. I recovered from migraine but now I am suffering from epilepsy from last 3 years and I continously feel that my head nerves are swollen and that can be felt. I am not able to bear the pain of my swollen nerves and its affecting my performance and private life. I have been forced to quit my studies as epileptic attacks have affected my memory power.

If anyone has solutions to my problems, please help. My email-id is saurabh_b_shah@yahoo.com.

  • Have you been to an opthomologist. (MD for the eyes), to check your eyes for papilledema.Have you had a spinal tap that measured your opening pressure? I suffered form cranial nerve palsy for years, with horribel headaches. The pain and swelling of the nerves was causd by intercranial pressure. (excessive fluid on the Brain and spine.) I had an LP shunt and have been free of nerve swelling and pain for a long time. If you indeed have pailledema. Please get in to see an nueroopthomologist for treatment.
