I have migraines at the base of my skull on the left side, I wake up with them and spend my day fighting them off. I had to go to the hospital Sunday because I could no longer take th pain. I have a knot at the base of my skull but the ER Dr. said it was just he way my head was made...??? I am going on 8 days of this migraine now. Every morning I wake up with it. Every morning.....my midrind no longer works so now they put me on Imitrix ( which I am not fond of). I also have fibromyalgia, diabetes, arthritis, and 2 herniated disks in my back, and suffer from depresseion. I take alot of meds on a daily basis to just function, but this migraine is sending me over the edge..... I live in enough pain without adding these migraines to it. if anyone has any suggestions I am completely open to listen.
