I have had a BAD migraine for the last 11 hours. I'm vomitting and really dizzy. I usually don't get dizzy. I called my Neurologist and the "nurse" she is a EEG tech who thinks the knows everything, said they won't call me in anything. they want to see me untill they give me anything. So they suggested I go get a shot. I asked if they would fax me something saying They treat me and suggested I go get a shot(so the other docs won't be mean) but they won't do that either. I'm so frustrated, so tired of being sick, so tired of depending on my family to take care of me. So tired of living this way.

And, if I go get a shot, they will give me Nubain and it helps but not for long. How do you go about asking for something stronger without looking like an addict.

Sorry you are having it so rough today, I think you have just got to keep repeating yourself and stating your case that certain meds don't work or don't work for long. I feel for you and am very glad you have got family to help you, I know it's not nice having to rely on them all the time but for the time being that's the way it has to be for you! Sorry I cannot be any real help here as here in the uk things are done very differently, but I will keep you in my prayers, hope it goes soon Ann.

Ang....

the best suggestion I have is more long term...get a better doc to treat you in the long term so that when this type of situation comes up you have a better "team" who is willing to offer the "big guns"

I run into the same situation...I am in pain, you don't want to help me...but I don't want to come out and ask for specifics because you will think I am a druggie...

well, if I/we were...we would be on the corner selling more than our belongings...

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO WAIT/CAN'T...(or in the mean time..before finding a REAL doc ** tongue )

We would not be sitting in an office calmly talking about things or asking to be treated for legit pain. Take someone with you, someone who has seen and can honestly and rationally discuss your situation also. Realize your doctors standpoint as well, they have pressure from authorities to be careful about the amount and the patients they prescribe narcotics to...Take your medical records with you, take your diary...take as much "ammo" with you to back up your "story"...present your case like a lawyer would. Try to leave out emotion, as hard as that is. Let them see the facts, sometimes doctors get hard to the feelings because they see so much day in and day out and we have to prove the case and get them to see why as far as reasoning...

I know that is more than we are up to, but in the end it is about what we need to do for ourselves and our wellbeing!

Hang in there...

and in the end, find a doctor who works as hard for you as you work for yourself.
