Happy Saturday! Ready for some #headache management tips from #AIHS19 / @aihsHeadache ?

1/
First, from @123Migraine: Medication overuse headache.
5% of the population has a chronic daily headache - HALF of these are due to MOH; 8 million people!

Criteria:
15+ days per month of a headache medication if over-the-counter, 10+ if Rx or combo
>3 months of regular use

2/
Medication overuse #headache:

Treatment is removing the overused drug!

Sometimes this requires inpatient treatment and tweaking of the current regimen. Butalbital/#fiorcet withdrawal can be dangerous. Sometimes it gets worse before it gets better. Help with coping skills!

I have a brain tumor/IIH & such severe intestinal damage that I can't digest food w/out enteral food RX.
It's $198/mo even w/a pharma scholarship.
My now 77-year-old mom is my caregiver & she can't afford it.
We get $64/mo for food + trying to save home. Please help!
In 2011, I was bitten by a tick. I contracted E. Chaffeensis, Rickettsia, & Lyme. I wasn't treated for 11 mos. The bacteria went to my spinal cord/brain.
Please help us 💔

During 1 of my numerous hospitalizations, I caught Vanc-resistant C. Difficile for 3.5 yrs & had to have 2 FM transplants.
I can't digest/ absorb food w/out EnteraGam.
It's norm. $1600/mo but I get a pharma discount, making it $198/mo. My 77-year-old mom still can't afford it.
