Most of you know that my husband, Rick, has suffered from headaches for almost 2 years now. He had maybe 1-2 headaches per month prior to May 2006, but in May 2006 he got Viral Meningitis. Since then he has a headache every day – it’s just a matter of how intense they are. They are NOT migraine headaches. They are tension headaches & he has been trying to get to the root problem ever since. He’s gone to the chiropractor, a dentist specializing in jaw related issues, a sleep clinic, a neurologist, etc… Today, however, he saw a new neurologist in Eugene (actually it is the same doctor who treated him in the hospital in May 2006). This doctor gave us some hope! He thinks some of Rick’s headaches are “rebound headaches” caused by the narcotic (Vicotin) that he’s been taking for the last 2 years. He will slowly wean Rick off the Vicotin & then try to determine what is causing the problems. As with all suffering, the Lord has been faithful & I’ve seen Rick press hard into the Lord thru this time. I can see the growth in my husband over the last 2 years, as a result. Please pray that this neurologist will be able to help him. We want Rick to be able to be free of this daily constant pain.
