Morning All!
I have been having the same migraine for 8 days now. There's nothing that helps considering I took 700 mg of Tramadol the other day with no relief. All it did was knock me out for like 30 minutes. It's starting to cut into my daily life with my 3 kids (6 years, 5 years, and 2 months). I get extremely irritable and, even though it's not their fault, I lash out. It's not fair and I don't want them to think I'm always mad at them.
I really need advice/help. My doctor's office is also closed until the day after Memorial Day. I have no idea as to what to do. I'm about to leave work now because of the pain I'm experiencing in my head and now throughout my body. I do have Fibromyalgia, but I know that's not what I'm feeling right now. It's all radiating from my head.

Welcome to the forum Stephanie.

I would go to the ER and ask for Imitrex. It works well for me.
It is non narcotic. Tylenol 3 for at night.

I would also find a doctor that as someone on call while they are on vacation. Is this neurologist? If not, I suggest you find a good neurologist from a major hospital to deal with the migraines.

Hope you are feeling better soon.

Peace and strength

When I get a migrane I take advil migrane and directions say adults can take two but one does the trick for me, and it is gel cap too so it gets to your system quickly and the pain is no fun I would rather sit in dark and cover eyes pain so bad I grab a hold to my head pain goes to one side of jaw line and I take that advil migrane gel cap and in 10 min no pain.

Thyroid disorder (hypothyroid)

I take 100mcg of sertraline (zoloft) and hydroxyzine as need 50mcg up to 3xs a day& ambien at night for severe insomnia. Looking for a recovery solution to my thyroid disorder, so that anxiety& depression can get fully under control prayers are always welcome.
