O.k...I am trying to pursue my life again...and go back to how things "used" to be. Mentally my plan has been to "push" ahead and build my strength back to where I was before my migraines/vertigo/"what-have-you" took over my life a year and a half ago.
Physically my body is like..."good one, I don't think so!!"
As of now, I take only celexa 1xday. I have tried and gone through EVERY preventative migraine drug....triptan...EVERYTHING...(or so it seems) available.
I have honestly grown sick and tired of being "sick and tired" so I thought I would cleanse my body of all of the medications I have been putting into it and try this new route.
I feel as though my dr. has "given up on me" and my only choice now is to at least try this approach to make sure it's not all of those medications that are making me sicker with them than without them.
Well...so far....not so good. I have had a headache with nausea since Monday. On Wednesday I COULDN'T take it anymore I went in and the nurse practitioner ordered a shot of toradol and phenegren....and NOTHING....I have been pretty much nursing my "wounds" on my own and trying to just forge ahead with the pain and nausea "hoping" it would just GO AWAY!!
Last night...I finally couldn't take it...my head hurt so bad and I was so ungodly nauseated and feeling like a "rag doll" that I went to bed at 7:30....now, it's 4:45 am and am up...not nauseated, but with a you got it.....HEADACHE!!!albeit, not a migraine though!!
Anyone ever try this approach?? If anyone has any advice I would greatly appreciate it. Ever feel like NOTHING works and you have grown tired of the "let's try this.....give it a few weeks though to see if it works.....and if not, call the office and we'll try something else"!! I'm just at my wit's end and am starting to feel like the local clinic here in town thinks I'm some kind of NUT!!
