My original post/story, fyi. https://www.tinnitustalk.com/threads/did-it-on-my-own-since-2006-but-need-help-now.8497/ I saw a neurologist today, mostly for the headaches I've had on a daily basis since this past December. I listed on the intake forms tinnitus and every other symptom I've experienced that I thought he might want to know about, but understood that my primary doctor was sending me to the neurologist mainly for the headaches and that the guy wasn't going to be focusing at all on tinnitus, which was fine with me. Anyway, after what seemed like the taking of a very thorough history and running through a fairly time-consuming clinical exam, he tells me what he thinks my headache problem (New Daily Persistent Headache - http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/723842_5). Then he starts to describe it and I think, "oh great, something else that generally can't be cured for many of us." Anyway the first thing he wants to do treatment-wise (after sending me for a follow-up to the brain MRI I've already had and then maybe for a lumbar puncture ... woohoo, party time) is prescribe a low dose of nortriptyline/Pamelor. I've read some of the stuff on this board about Pamelor re: treating tinnitus, and I see that some folks say it helps tinnitus and others say it made their tinnitus worse. This doc is prescribing the drug to treat my headaches, though. Anybody out there have experience with nortriptyline for headaches? If so, how did it go? Help the headaches or hurt? Affect the tinnitus one way or the other, or stay the same? I know I can't divorce myself from the fact that even if I'm taking the stuff for headaches it can still help or hurt or have no effect on my tinnitus. And I know that I have to decide the cost/benefit stuff for myself re: taking a new medication and what might happen to my tinnitus. I'm just hoping for some relief somewhere ... be it the headaches, tinnitus, jaw pain, insomnia, anxiety, or whichever of my long list of complaints. I feel like, if I can gain ground with one of those then I'll be better able to cope with the rest b/c right now I'm just completely stung out and hanging on by fingertips. Any advice, input, past experience? Thanks.
