The pain will not go away! She is also unable to sleep longer than a few hours due to the pain. We have tried ibuprofen, tylenol, aspirin, hydrocodone, with no luck. She is absolutely miserable and scared. I took her to the ER and their only suggestion was melatonin to help her sleep (which we tried but it didn't work) I need help. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?
She has been diagnosed with Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy and she did start a new medication, Ethosuximide, within the last month. She also had a large tonic clonic seizure on Sunday morning a week ago. The pain started a week ago and became severe 3 days ago but the neurologist is convinced her epilepsy and seizure are not related to her muscle pain, I find it very coincidental if it's not related.
She describes the pain as being a deep severe muscle ache.
I appreciate anyone who has any ideas.
Thanks so much!!!
