Hi fellow headache sufferers... I am new here
I started getting daily left sided head pain and pressure in August of this year, and just was diagnosed with Migraine headache by a neurologist yesterday.. Ironicaly, yesterday was the WORST the headache has bee, and I was starting to get really freaked out
It subsided some, but not alot. I still have sharp pains, and some pressure, granted its an improvement from yesterday, but it still SUCKS
Dr gave me a script
for topomax, and a 5 day course of dexamethasone to "break the cycle" as I have not had a pain free day pretty much since this started almost 4 months ago
problem is, I have NEVEr heard of this being used for headaches, only asthma, Ulcerative colitis and other such medical problems. I am VERY sensitive to medication, and particularly side effect.. AND I have major anxiety, or did... its kinds improved alot this past 6-9months after being on lexapro for about
a year (quit in JUNE) and have often wondered if that is what has caused this migraine problem..
anyone have any experience with dexamethasone? Any advice would be so appreciated
