Prayers to all!
I’m on day 100 of a migraine. I have tried every med combination in the book 📚
5-6 hospitalizations for IV DHE. That temporarily brings the pain down to a 5-6.
Most days I live with a 6-7 migraine. Next week I’m trying deeper nerve blocks
Under sedation. I believe the pain is coming from my neck though. Each day is
Very long. Trying to see the brighter side of each day. This website is remarkable!
I’ve been out of work, may not be able to go back. That saddens me. confused

Best wishes to all that fight any headaches !
I’m in the medical profession and I still haven’t found a way to make them go away.

I am currently on day 14. This is my 1st time to ever experience anything like this. I have an appointment with an neurologist next month but am constantly struggling with what is the right next step. I have been to the ER 3 times and been found out I am highly allergic to meds like Imetrix. My nurse practitioner can not help me any further and I'm confused and in major pain. And direction and wisdom is appreciated.

Ask about lidocaine treatment thru the nose. I get them
Every three weeks, it lowers my pain level to around 4 on most days.

Peace and strength
