This headache is still going strong....and getting stronger.  I've been vomitting all day, which used to give me some relief.....but not anymore.  I took my last 2 Frova, and have been taking Vicodin as often as I'm allowed....with an extra thrown in every so often. nono    It's so bad today....one of those days when you just want to lay down in a dark room with a blanket over your head and sleep....well, sleep didn't come, the blanket at least blocked a little light and sound, and I had some frozen french fries over my forehead and eyes all day, to no avail.  I've been so dizzy and on the verge of passing out all day, it's scaring me......I don't want to start passing out again, god forbid I hit something harder next time, or don't have my husband right there.  I'm tempted to go back to the ER again for some help with the pain, but man, I'm starting to feel like they will be rolling their eyes when they see me coming.  DH doesn't feel so hot tonight either, and I don't want to make him sit there, but man, how much can one person handle before the explode????  What is going on with me?????
 
I had another EEG on Wednesday that was normal......neuro just said to go have the MRI of my lumbar spine, which I can't do with my head ready to burst...still did nothing to change my normal meds and try something new.  I'm so fed up.  PCP told me to just see the neuro.  HELLO, he's not helping me!!!!!
 
Talk about frustrating.......

So I thought I'd update....

The headache is still going strong. I passed out at a family BBQ on Saturday, how embarrassing. The ambulance took me to the hospital, none of which I remember. I got lots of Dilaudid and Toradol, but still no relief. I ended up back in the ER on Sunday, as my headache was worse and I ws having stomach issues. The doctor that I saw thinks I'm having tension headaches (pushed on a spot on my neck and I nearly jumped off the bed) and cluster headaches, because migraines do not last this long? He told me first to quit smoking (easier said than done), and I still need to go to the cardiologist about the passing out....my head races and my bp gets very low, the lowest on Saturday being 89/47. I've never had any experience with cluster headaches, though I guess that would explain why the Frova isn't working! I'm dying, I swear...my head feels like it's going to burst. Does anyone have any idea what to do for cluster headaches???? Thanks!
