Antibiotic Name?
Duration?
Supportive Supplements and/or herbals?
LLMD's thought on what was causing it?

Thank you.

My head preassure was fianlly relieved while on Mepron/Zith/Bactrim DS for over a year and a double dose Mempron for at least 6 months.

My head pressure and conginitive issues returned two weeks after stopping Mepron and shifting over to Cryptolepis and Sida Acuta.

Babs is pretty stubborn with many of us.

Same as above for Babs plus Pharma's for parasites; Biltricide, Ivermecitin, Pin-X and Alinia.

Was good for a while now head pressure is back - like inflammed brain and shrinking skull sensation is back.

I also have Chiari Malformation and head pressure/pressure headaches are a hallmark symptom. Who knows anymore...

Seeing a cranial osteopath is what worked for me. Never really had much relief with meds.

When faced with pain you have two choices....either quit and accept the circumstances, OR make the decision to fight with all the resources you have at your disposal.

Antiparasitics and staying on them! Colonics and warm water enemas to release dead and dying parasites.

Re: cranial osteopath (mentioned by phylly78)

UPLEDGER INSTITUTE - just Google. Their sites list MDs, DOs, PTs trained in their approach is SAFE for those with lyme.

Many styles of adjustement are NOT safe for those with lyme. NEVER, ever - ever - have your neck suddenly twisted as some styles do. Inquire as to the approach beforehand.

NEVER do headstands, shoulder stands or put neck or spine in ANY compromising or sudden force (even if "gentle" for a normal person).

FENLDENKRAIS is another site to search.

Try to find a LL practitioner for any kind of body work if possible - even if just for a massage. If that is not possible (and it's often not for cranial sacral, at least consult your LLMD for certain "rules" that may be very important to know BEFORE having anyone work on your body.

The spine is especially important for those with lyme. "Gentle" is the general rule. UPLEDGER's style is one that is very good and safe for those with lyme. Still, there are a few others - or some LL trained professionals who can adjust for your needs. But be absolutely certain they won't trick you and do a sudden twist anyway.

A GLUTEN-FREE diet helped SO much to relieve years-long migraine. Dairy-free, too. But going gluten free made the most initial improvement.

WATER, too. It really matters.

MAGNEIUSM & TAURINE, too.

LIVER SUPPORT is vital, as well, to help decrease toxic load that leads to inflammation.

INFECTIONS of all kinds (including parasites) - and HEAVY METALS - must be met head-on, so to speak but only - always - along with good liver support. The antioxidants in most also help to relieve inflammation and nourish cells.

Of course, all avenues should be explored as it's likely caused by a combination of factors. All bases must be covered. Many good replies above.

Thanks for the replies. I guess I should stop hoping that the head pressure was being caused by Bartonella/Lyme.

I am going to purchase Lumbrokinase to help circulation and see if that helps. Already gluten free/diary free. Ive cut out all sugar. I do salt/c. I take A heavy load of artemisinin/artemesia/wormwood complex/parastroy 3 days on, 4 days off... plus other stuff.

xrunner -- i feel for ya. i get migraines too. have you tried butterbur?

also, maybe the headaches are related to a systemic candida infection? try going without sugars and see if the h/s's le t up.

try keeping a food diary. you will be surprised -- there may be a lot of food triggers out there. also watch out for toothpastes with potassium nitrate in them, or xylitol.
