Meds are finally kicking in

The higher dose of topamax is FINALLY kicking in.
It is not penetrating the headache, but it is helping with the leg pain a bit. I was researching how it works and I discovered that it shuts the pain signals off.
I learned that and also noticed it when I missed a driveway on my way out today. Uhm, Oops.
We shall see the headache is about a 10 average, but I am getting used to that, it seems that its what it normally is though. I rarely get lower than that and when I do it goes no lower than an 8 or 9 anymore. It spiked after they took the shunt out and I have only had a few good days since.
