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!! I am not currently on any preventive meds, and only treat the headaches as they occur.
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?
I've been searching on the Internet about some common preventive migraine meds, and I really don't like the sound of the potential side effects. Any preventive meds that you like and have few to no side effects?
Thanks so much in advance for your suggestions!
