Ann: Thank you for your kind note. I am verrry afraid of needles!! I am such a wimp that when I had my ears pierced, I fainted. Then, whenever I tried to change my earrings, I'd have to put my head down because I'd faint. I no longer have pierced ears. The thought of giving myself a shot makes me queasy. Somebody told me about the pain medication, Darvocet. Have you ever heard of that? Do you know if it works? A friend of mine has critical back pain and her doctor gave her a Morphiene patch. It sounds like heaven to me, but I have to go to work every day, and I can't do my job if I'm loopy! I look forward to hearing from you (and anyone else who has suggestions.) Thank you!!
No, I haven't seen a neurologist yet. I see my regular physician tomorrow about something else, so I will ask her to refer me to one. Every time I ask for a different medication (because the prior one doesn't work) I feel like some sort of druggie. All I'm looking for is relief from the pain, so I can function semi-normally. I work in a small office, so when I come to work with a migraine I am able to shut the lights off, turn the phones down, and rest in the ladies room if and when I need to.
Thank you for your information. I will also ask my doctor about the nasal spray Imigran.
