I am new to this.
It is all just so crazy ( the migraines)
To live like this. Ijust wanted to mention that I have had to go on Steriods a few times before to "break" a migraine cycle. It does help a great deal. I have had migraines now for over 18 years and never heard of rebound until this year. That is the headache after the headache, right? Wow, and all this time I thought that it was just my head getting ready to explode again.
With me I now get migraines 2or 3 a month but they last from 5-7 days each one, where even earlier this year I would get 7-10 a month and they would only last a day or two. I can not even think at all anymore also my face is completly numb almost all the time with or with out the pain. My life is going by me and my head head hurts too bad to even watch.
My med list now: Depakote 500mg daily, Immatrex as needed, Codeine 30mg as needed, Pheneragran 25mg as needed. (I carry them with me everywhere I go now) I have tried almost everything. All test "look" good, whats next? How do you live like this? Even when you are not in pain the FEAR of the pain is always there. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you all, Cheri
