Thank you Dr Diana. I’ll try the higher dose but have always suspected a spinal fluid leak as, for 18 months after the accident, I had metallic tasting fluid in my mouth every time sat upright in the morning. Also, after my accident, I felt the need to lie down and drink water all the time. Gradually, I’ve been able to stand up longer but, in the three years since, I can only do 10% of what I used to do. The more I do, the more the pain increases and it only reduces when I lie down. Is there a test for a spinal fluid leak and is there any hope of putting this right again? I’ve never been able to understand why the consultants I’ve seen can’t diagnose my problem as am in excruciating pain every day.
Best wishes and gentle hugs to you too.
