i'm sorry 2 my fellow migraine sufferers. For me Topomax absolutely does nothing for me, but i'm really happy for those of u that it works for. As of last week i finally saw a Neurologist. i have had appointments every month & in a couple of those months 2-appt.'s in a one month. Nevertheless, i canceled each one since last October...i know shame on me...Lol
So after i finally saw him he gave me a couple different samples 2 try (Maxalt, Relpax, & Cambia), Maxalt worked somewhat ok, then i had a massive migraine the following nite after trying the Maxalt, & i tried the Relpax. It took away the excruciating pain (nausea, couldn't handle the lights on, loud kids, etc), so i called the next day for a full prescription & they called it in immediately. But when i went into pick it up they only come in a 6-pack & even after insurance they were $43...that sucked...Lol i didn't try the Cambria cuz the side affects were all intestinal stomach issues & with having my ileostomy i didn't want 2 even try it.
He then ordered regular x-rays on my neck cuz i absolutely cannot move it @ all & i mean @ all. i got the results 2-day & i have intensive arthritis. But he believes there is something else wrong along with that, so their scheduling me for a brain & neck MRI. i'm a little worried cuz i had a very large tumor removed years ago, & it has grown back a large size. So my prayers R hoping that portion is really ok.
i've been on Flexeril for almost 2-yrs which does nothing for the pain. So, he gave me Baclofen 2 try. Its working barely for about 2-hrs out of the day :(
OMG, i had thought i had posted a New Post...i am so genuinely sorry.
