As you may know, I recently celebrated the finding of my new Combo of meds, Topamax being one of three. It was working miracles. I had 4 migraines in 2 months (and I had 3 surgeries so thats extra good ). I was having migraines 3times a week before. I was so excited about finally starting to feel good. Then came the kindney stones. And I thought I migraine was bad. And they are, but oh my goodness It was terrible. And I not only have one, but mulitble stones. "Sandlike, in number after you pass the bigs ones" says the doctors. I Passed 4 at walmart(at one time) and them several more the next few days. SO, I call neuro and his nurse says "Well, he was really sad about it, but you need to stop taking it". I agreed, but every day since I've had a headache of some kind. I also didn't like the topamax b.c sometimes I felt more dumb than usual, but hey, I wasn't having 3 migraines a week.
I'm just so frustrated. For years I've tried it all. Now, Found somthing that works, and can't take it. THe doc. in the ER says, I know your headaches are bad, but Migraines won't kill you and kindney damage will. I understand what he was saying, but the way I was giong before, I think they can kill you. Maybe not physically, but they suck the life right out of you. Now I have to go back to that daily struggle.
Just needed to vent. Thanks
