Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
Hi all! I finally saw the neurologist after months on a waiting list.
Anyway, we addressed my horrific headaches and since during my waiting list time, I had all the bloodwork, and brain MRIs done he was able to diagnose me with Chronic Migraine consiquential to spinal cord compression. With that he prescribed Topamax to be taken three times a day.
I have not received my medication yet as this is workers comp and they have to approve all medications, that could take days.
Does anyone have experience with this stuff? It says it is an epilepsy medicine, at this point I am willing to try anything. Injections and nerve blocks did not help and no OTC meds touch my migraines. I am hopefull that helps. The Dr. Said it won't erase the migraines but reduce the frequency and intensity. If in 30 days there is no change we will try something else.
Some of the side effects are scary, but if one goes by that, we would never try anything.
Any experiences are appreciated.
