Hey I finally found something to get rid of my migraine-headaches! Indocin is an NSAID used for inflammation, so I must have been having something inflamed up there.

After 9 months of constant pain and TONS of tests, I am finally relieved!

Hooray! [Smile]

Take It Easy, Peace

Take good care of your stomach!! That stuff is rough on the stomach. OUCH!

Be sure to take it with plenty of food.

It's nice that it's working for the inflammation!

Opinions, not medical advice!

I am truly thrilled for you that you have found something that helps with your pain! Can you hear it coming?....but- it is very hard on the stomach as Lymetoo mentioned.

It is hard on the kidneys. (Elderly and anyone with kidney problems should probably avoid it). And can cause blood dyscrasias, lowering you white blood cell count.

So take it with plenty of food. And have your blood checked once in a while.

Meanwhile, kudos!

This is great news that you found something that works for you. Much like you, many of us suffered through those rough headaches and would try anything our doctors thought might help.

As with all of us, it isn't one glove fits all, so it's always good when we finally find the one that works for us.

The name sounds vaguely familiar so I'm not sure if I had tried that one or not. I actually had three different ones at one point that I could juggle between, but think they were all samples to see if any of them worked.

Brain fog sure can make it hard to remember many of the details of what we went through back then. Not the brain fog now, but when going through it, I can't remember back.

That may be a good thing. Again, I'm so glad you found relief.

I was able to reduce inflammation and headache pain with systemic enzymes.

When I ramped up the daily dose of Wobenzym, I no longer woke up every day with a splitting headache.
