Back in November, my husband started compaining of a headache. The headache never went away. He passed out, and when he came to, he started having what I thought was a seizure. His whole upper body was contracting, and he looked like he was doing sit ups. We took him to the hospital, and they did lots of tests on him. They sent us home 4 days later and said that they didn't know what was going on, but said that they "thought" he was having non-epileptic seizures. They sent him home on Keppra. My husband ended up losing his job over this. We had no insurance, and could not afford the medicine. He took the medicine for about a month, and then wheened himself off. He has been headache free since then, until this past MOnday. He started complaining of a headache, and it wouldn't go away. He eventually passed out. He went to the doctor, and the referred him to a neurologist. However, the neurologist could not get him in until July. He passed out three more times, so we took him to the ER. Again, he was in the hospital for 4 days. They did a CT scan, Echocardiogram, EEG, EKG, and MRI on him. They said his heart looked fine. He was supposed to have a neurologist come look at him, but they never did. They sent him home and told him to follow up with the cardiologist, and to keep his appointment with the neurologist. We got his records and the only thing that they said they saw on the MRI was mild sinusitus changes in the inferior of both maxillary sinuses. They also said there was "probably" a small sebaceous cyst in the right occipital scalp, and the cerebellar tonsils are slightly low-lying with the tips just below the foramen magnum. We have not found out anything concrete about what could be going on with my husband. He is still suffering with his headache. They were giving him 2 750 mg Vicodins every 6 hours to help control his headaches. So, does anyone have any advice? Has anyone ever experienced this? Does anyone know what is going on?
