I have had only a dozen or so migraines in my life. This one has been the worst. It has been 9 days. My pain feels like stabbing pain on one side, the right. I first thought it was an ear ache. Stabbing pain, every few seconds. It moves up and down on the same side and nothing over the counter helped. I actually cried, and I am over 40! The doctor today gave me Maxalt 1Omg rapid wafers..$18.66 each tablet...thank goodness for health benefits!
I took two as directed along with Naproxen 500mg. This all began at 11:30 this morning. Although the pain has diminished and the "stabs" are less frequent, I can still feel it and feel heavy headed.
If the pain is back tomorrow, should I start again and is this type of pain typical of migrain?
I have never had any tests to confirm migraine...my doctor has just said "must be A Typical Migraine".
Any help is greatly appreciated.
