I'm so confused

I have no idea what is going on with me.

First off, I have had headaches upon waking for more than 3 years. NEVER a day that I do not have one, just some days are better than others. They are not rebound headaches since I seldom take tylenol or iburp. unless they are really bad.

Now, within the last 6 months, I have started having pain and fatigue. The pain is in my hands, sides of my feet (not really in the arches), back and neck. I most recently went to my PCP who said that it is "nerve pain" and put me on Neurotin 300mg at bedtime (since in the mornings is when it is the worse)

Now I have noticed that my pinky and ring fingers are tingling, and when I sleep on my left side, I get the "pins and needles" feeling from about ribs to my hip.

What could be causing all this??

  • I forgot something that may be important. I tested positive for babinski reflex, the same day that they put me on Neurotin. Thanks
