Hi,
 
Okay I saw a neurologist in Sept and he said in addition to my fibro (which I already knew I had) that I suffer from tension headaches and migranes. After 2 trips to the ER he gave me a prescription for Diluid? Well I usually get tension headaches and haven't really had a migrane since Sept but last night started out as a tension headache and quickly elavated to a migrane. My left eye was throbing and pulsating and it felt like it was going to explode. I tood 3 of my 5/325 percocets and 1 of the diluid pills, the diluid really didn't do anything at all. I suffered all night and when I take percocet I can't sleep, even with a sleep aide. So I've been walking around all day with a eye that now twitches and I have a headache. Don't think its a migrane but it is still painful. Does anyone else had headaches like this? What do you take?
 
Oh the doctor did give me some samples of a few migrane meds to try, but when I tried the first one back in Sept it felt like my neck/throat was being crushed and I hated it.
What do you take to get relief from this terrrible pain???

I think you mean Dilaudid which is a powerful narcotic. If thats what it is you should not be taking this and 3 percocets at the same time! Unless of course you have been on pain meds for quite some time and have developed a tolerance?! Did your doc say to do this? Quick question, does your headache get worse when you stand up? If it does I may know why your painkillers aren't working. The fact that you feel like your throat is being crushed, does this happen often? Let me know.

Yes, Dilaudid is the name. I've taken then one time prior to this when my head was pounding and it didn't do a darn thing for me either. I have been on pain meds for over 10 years now. Started out with tylenol 3's vicodine etc. I've been on percocet for over 2 years so I do think I've built up a tolerance. It just doesn't cut it anymore for my fibromyalgia.
The migrane med's was something like trimex???
Why do you think I'm experiencing this pain? excuse the typo's I'm a little groggy right now

I think its Immatrex (sp ahah) I'm alreggic to it. Does it feel like your head being shrunk then exploded like a bomb? try to put an icepack on the back of ur neck and on ur forehead. also do you have allergies? if so you might want to try some benedryl with the migraine meds. i frequent allergy migraines. i get away with frova and benedryl.
