My headaches are relatively new. They started about
1 and a half years ago. Since then my life went down hill very quickly. They increased in intensity and and were pretty much constant, though I had some breaks in the pain. No triptan has worked and my only relief for a while was Fiorinal, but even that eventually stopped working. I went to a neurologist and began looking for solutions. So far no preventative has done a thing, nor has migranal, or any any other nasal spray I have tried.
Finally I reached a breaking point in November of last year when my headaches got so bad I was out of school for about
a month and then hospitalized for a week. They tried their most intense migraine regimen but the only thing that gave me any sort of relief was IV Dilaudid. I did not want to get on a narcotic pain management plan however I still had to take dilaudid once at night along with a sleeping med to sleep because the pain kept me up.
I finally found a treatment that works and I am now controlling my pain with pain medication. I have gotten my life back and it has been a good decision. If anyone has any advice or comments please respond, thank you.
Thanx for your advice
