I am currently having rebound migraines and I have had them for the past 2 months. Four years ago I was in a rebound cycle before and it lasted about 3 years. I went to many major clinics throughout the country and have had many different treatments. I have been on DHE, steroids, vitamins, had spinal taps, anti-inflammatory drugs, beta blockers, anti seizer medications and anti depression, bio feedback, and hypnosis. I even tried just being really sick for several days and no medication. Nothing really worked other then they just stopped and got better. I went from having to take relpax everyday to only having really bad migraines once a week or every other week with mild headaches in between that could be stopped with anti-inflammatory medication.
I currently am going to a migraine specialist in NYC and he is putting me on a 2nd 10-day steroid regimen. I am on day 3 but for the past two days at the same time, 10 pm all of a sudden get my migraine back strong and end up taking relpax. He tried Migranal prior but that ended up making me worse and I ended up in the ER.
Does anyone know how long the steroids take to start working? Or are they not working and should call my doctor. In addition has anyone else had difficult rebounds and found something that worked?
I am getting very frustrated and upset over this. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
