Ok, hon, its probably a Rebound migraine. Go back to the ER, and make it sound worse in pain...when asking the pain scale, say 2 or 3 higher than it is (easier to fake and get treated a bit quicker). Do a doosy and vomit in front of the nurses and doctors. Wear sunglasses. And if you get the same doctors, say "I'm sorry, I do not think that is medically nessary. My head is killing me, its a darn migraine get the hell out of this room and get me a second opinion."
Ways to get thru er's quicker... Vomit in front of them, pass out in front of them, hand them your asthma inhaler and pass out in their arms, get so weak that you need a wheelchair and vomit, get diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that is rare and say "i have a surpressed immune system and i am on doctors orders to report to the er". works great for me... lol Yes CATs and MRIs can be done without die. I should know! Sorry, but I'm a walking medical case, I'm actually used to doctors asking me if they can bring in interns to observe!
