This is going to be long but please help me. For the last five weeks I have had a migraine every single day. Some days are better than others and I can get by with just tylenol but they are still migraines. Light still affects me and I'm still nauseous etc. the meds in my profile are not correct so I will give you my current list. This is after two visits to the ER and several doctor visits. Amitriptyline 100mg, trokendi Rx 200, Lyrica 75 mg two a day, depakote 500 (this is temp for this headache) zomig, firocet which I do not take more than 3 days a week, tylenol number three which I am also very cautious with. I cannot take NSAIDS. I take a couple meds for disautnomia that is to help headache but my headache won't let me think of their names.
I have been given various things at the hospital also a couple other triptans frova and rizatrptan. But none of it worked.
I have tried probably a hundred non medicine things to get rid of it. I got new glasses, I have chewed ginger. I started a magnesium supplement. I tried a sinus med. I am going dairy free for three days now and will continue for two weeks. Cold packs on the head. Heat packs on the neck. Stress releasing massage lotion. Essential oil. Hydration. Sunglasses. Sleep. Wearing a mouth guard in case I'm clenching my jaws causing tension. This sounds crazy but usually works temporarily and I will explain it how it was explained to me if you guys need to hear it but giving myself brain freeze with an icee. And other things I can't think of.
My doctor is trying to get me approved for Botox but says it takes time. Does anyone have any thoughts? As you can see I'm pretty much willing to try anything. Thanks so much for reading this long post.
