Tell me, What did you take before you went to see the doctor? Any triptans???
I have had a mix or combination headaches (tension/migraines) and have been told to take some sort of triptan (Imitrex, Amerge, Axert, Frova, Maxalt, Zomig, Relpax) with an anti-nausea medicine (cheap-reglan, expensive-zofran..these are the two that work best for me...others would be phenergan/compazine) and then also some type of pain medication (vicodin/percocet)
I have had this type of cycle last a total of 33 days straight when of course puts you at risk of stroke (more than 72 hours with a migraine-called status migrainous) I ended up going to the hospital for IV DHE and Dilaudid to break the cycle...It was miserable, but I was so glad to finally break it up and be able to move on and start feeling better.
Let me know how things are going!!!
