This is my first time posting here. I am generally on the fibro board, but now I get to add migraines to the mix *yay*. Ok so here it goes. I have had this headache for about 5 weeks now, It seems to hurt the most across my eyebrows and in the back of my head. I cannot handle light or noise or really much of anything. I feel dizzy, and sick to my stomach to the point of vomiting. I am having visual disturbances (everything is turning different shades of green or blurry). I have had normal MRI results and CT scan. My neurologist put me on topamax which I absolutely hate. It does nothing for my headache and I have a hard time eating when I am on it. I have been on it for 3 weeks. I have also tried 4 different triptans (I think they are called) with no relief. My neruologist just wants to keep on going with the trying more triptans, but I am sick of the pain and have been doubling my fibro pain meds in an attempt to get some relief from my migraine. The neurologist says I also have cervical dystonia. I can barely turn my head most days. I need relief, this is getting unbareable. I wrecked my car two days ago on the way to the neurologist (irony at it's best), and am now unable to get to the doctor so I have to figure it out on my own for a few days. Any suggestions would be helpful. What has worked for you guys? Anyone have a similar experience? What do you do when triptans don't work? At this point I would try anything such as lathering my head in toothpaste if you guys were to tell me it would help, that is how desperate I am.
