Hi, I trust my GP to a large extent but not fully because they have got stuff wrong for me and people I know in the past and because you dont get enough time to ask them everything. These are my symptoms:
mild on and off stabbing pains in head. mild on and off pain behind one eye. pain around ears. slightly blurred vision. numb feeling in diff parts of head, or mild 'awareness' of different parts of head. All of these symptoms come and go and for parts of the day I feel normal. This started and has developed since 3 weeks ago after I took 6 lines of cocaine. I am also an Amitriptyline 10mg (low dose) for stomach pain. My doctor says the mixing of these drugs is not the cause - its just nerve problem, to do with verebrae etc..which extends in to the head and can also affect vision. however I have also read on the interent that mixing illegal drugs with anti-depressants (which Amitriptyline is, just not used as such in my case) can cause brain damage and I dont know if my GP is overlooking this or why he is able to rule it out! anyone know anything about this? can brain damage be mild like this but progress after the point the damage is done? or am I worrying for nothing? Please no unnecessary scaremongering or advice that it's bad to take cocaine - I know now!! thanks
