Do any of you with Crohn's also have migraines? I would really appreciate some suggestions on what some of you do to stop the cycle when the migraines come and go for days on end. I'm at my wits end, and all the weather changes this time of year is triggering them!!
Today will be my FIFTH day of taking pain meds to help stop the pain, but I know that if I take any pain meds beyond this timeframe, that I will be subjecting myself to rebound headaches. I'm really getting panic-y and somewhat depressed, as the thought of having to suffer through another migraine without anything to subdue the pain is almost unbearable. I already see a neurologist, and have been told that after the 5 days of pain meds, I just have to tough out the migraine. Any suggestions from any of you on how to reduce some of the suffering involved with this?
Please let me know if I should be posting this on the migraine forum, instead. I'm posting it here for now, as I also have Crohn's and feel more comfortable on the Crohn's forum since that's where I do all my posting. Thanks!
