Hello, I am a 25yo male, in good health(no high bp, colesterol, etc).I am active, eat healthy, no drugs, and little alchohol...but about three years ago, I developed spinal pain, neck pain, severe headaches, fever, weakness, sore throat, and sensitivity to light. I was told that I had all the symptoms of spinal menengitis(spelling?), but my spinal fluid was perfectly fine. I was discharged after only 1 night in the hospital, with no answers, and began to feel somewhat better...only with mild lingering headaches. Last September, all symptoms returned, even worse. After 5 days in the hospital, 2 LP's,a 30cc blood patch, MRI, X-ray, and tons of tests...nothing. I was told that I was "too tense" and needed to relax. I'm not under a lot of stress, I excersise, go fishing, play sports. The DR actually perscribed yoga therapy for me...no help (not that I thought it would). My headaches are still present daily. I wake up with a headache, and go to sleep with one. I have found that Excedrin migrane helps slightly. This is starting to affect my whole outlook on my future with my wife and son...pleas help.
