This is what I have been going through the last two years when I was diagnosed. It is in remission right now and I don't get the Killer headaches that are the side affects from this disease. It's funny how you would never know someone has a disease that is so rare until they tell you.

I was also diagnosed with ADHD and Mood Disorders. What the heck? I wonder where I fall with the mood disorders because a lot of them I believe are caused by hormones or just plain situations or my Benign Intracranial Hypertension. They range. Wikipedia mood disorders and you will see that it can be anything. I take Xanax 4mgs a day, Diamox 1000mgs a day, Abilify 10mgs a day, and good ole trusty Adderall 60mgs a day. I have also been prescribed Midrin which is headache medicine. I'm only 27 and take 5 meds daily. I'm a grandma now.

being multi-diagnosed is ruff
