Brain Pain: Sometime in late winter of 2012 (February), I began to experience pain in my brain whenever I would cough, laugh extra hard, sneeze, have to push during a difficult Bowel Movement or even bend over at the waist. I came on without warning. I had a CT Scan done on February 24, 2012, which came back with no signs of a brain tumor, which I thought might be the cause of my brain pain. I went to Google and discovered in the WebMD site, that other people have had this same condition, with no name and no known cure.
I did not see any solution that would fit my situation, but it was comforting to know that other people have experienced the same thing.
I saw my Neurologist, Dr. Michael Bell, on May 24, 2012 and he gave me a Prescription for Indomethacin @ 25mg with instructions to take 1 capsule 3 times per day. I received them in the mail and started taking them on June 7, 2012, with further instructions to stop in 2 weeks, because they could eat a hole in my stomach if I took them any longer. By the 3rd pill, I could already tell they were making a difference. I stopped on June 21, 2012 with no brain pain. By June 9, 2012, I had a serious coughing spell and yet experienced no pain.
6/19/2012 - today I am feeling some pain when I cough. July 8, 2012 - I felt some brain pain when I coughed today. July 9, 2012 - pain has disappeared. July 24, 2012 - no significant brain pain since I quit taking Indomethacin.View Thread
