So it turns out that my sinus infection wasn't a sinus infection, or thats the current theory. After 7 weeks, they now think that I have had a migraine. I spent the day in the ER yesterday and within 10 minutes of getting some shot of whatever my neurologist told them to give me, my 7 pain I had been having for sooooo long went down to a 3. They kept me there until they could give me another shot at 2 in the morning, and then sent me home. I am now finally able to function again. I still have some head pain, but they gave me some nasal migraine med and it is helping, so maybe they finally got it right. I hate that for weeks all the doctors agreed that it had to be a sinus infection that wouldn't clear, even after looking at my sinuses.

I just wish I knew why all of a sudden I was getting migraines. This was not an issue in the past. It may be some side effect of one of/combo of my meds, age, or some other issue. But I want it to stop. I have been having migraines for about 3 years, but nothing like this, and I don't want to go through this again. So I will be talking with the doctor to see what we can do to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Could it be chronic? My cousin suffers from chronic migraines and they will last for weeks at time where she can cannot function at all--constant vomiting, rapid weight loss, unable to stand/speak/etc.

I'm glad to hear you're feeling better though!! I hope you figure out definitively what you are afflicted with..
