I am considering seeing a headache specialist. My neuro suffers from migraines too so she knows where I am coming from.
I am now on a full month of medrol - predisone that appears to be working. I have only had 1 headache in the past 4 nights. And O2 took care of that very quickly.
The pain is usually the throbbing, sharp pain that starts in the eyebrow & goes to my eye. Many times I get lots of pressure at the base of my skull before they come on. I do not get the droopy eye or stuffy nose. My neuro did notice that my left eye was red ( that is the side that the migraines come on.) If left untreated, the migrianes usually last about 3 hours. With the maxalt, about 1 hour.
During this bout, however, I have had 2 headaches that had very sharp pain at the back & top of my head after the initial migraine has started. This is new. After awhile, that pain subsides & I am left with the normal migraine.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that this bout of headaches is gone. It has been more difficult to get rid of this time.
Thanks for your time.
