I started experiencing a "different" type of headache last week. Saw my PCP and was put on predisone. My temporal artery is pulsating out when I lay down and now sit up and that's where the pain is. It's on my TN side which is already numb from surgery and gamma knife. I recently had a steroid block 2 1/2 weeks ago. I have had TN 1 and 2 now for 20+ years and never been to the ER. I had to go Sunday, but still, no one listened. They said it was my TN. i've had cluster headaches, you name it. It's not like this. I saw a doctor yesterday who spent maybe 8 minutes with me and again, didn't listen when I said, it's not neuralgia. I finally asked if they could do a CTA to see if something is wrong. This doesn't make sense. I'm trying to work but it's extremely hard. I would be home but don't have alot of time since I started the job in June. I fell this morning, just lost balance, felt weird. My husband drove me in but I wish I just had someone, besides him, that listened to me that was a doctor. I'm concerned because I don't know what this is. Anyone at all know? I was told it couldn't be temporal arteritis because of my age. Well, at 14, I was told I had TN and back then, it was unheard of.
Thanks for your ear.
