Surely enough, after seven lumbar punctures due to physician incompetence, it was revealed that I had Varicella in my CSF once again, only one month after the completion of the first treatment.
I was given the same medication at the same dosage and rate for the same amount of time via PICC line. After the three weeks of treatment, I was prescribed Valtrex 1 gram twice a day PO. I had been taking Hydrocodone 10-325 for the migraines and back pain stemming from my attending physician using my back as a pin cushion, which worked very well to control the pain.
However recently, my PCP has began to feel "uncomfortable" with continuing this, I assume because he thinks I am a drug seeker. He refers me to a neurologist who continued the Hydrocodone but in a 7.5-325 dose. He also gave me samples of Cambia and Ralpex as a sort of experiment to find the cause of my continuing migraines. Around this time I started to experience severe insomnia for which I was prescribed Amitryptaline.
I am currently awaiting for testing and will share my findings as soon as they are available to me.
