I thought my migraines/headaches were under control. Well they're not. It sucks. I've taken my relpax, esgic plus and xanax to help and nothing has touched it. I'm really disappointed. I have so many other things I'm dealing with, I thought yeah, one less thing! I was in the hospital for a week right after Thanksgiving for anxiety and depression etc. and had three horrible migraines all three nights. I was up at 2:30 and crying because of the pain, which of course makes it worse. All they could give me the first night was motrin and the second and third nights they gave me maxalt, which doesn't work well for me. But they don't stock relpax. I'm on inderal LA for migraines and it seemed to be working. My blood pressure was 173/95. I've tried topamax, zonegran, imiprimine, imatrex, midodrin and several others that I can't remember. Then I've had two since I've been home in the last couple of days. I can't get my mind to shut off. That may be part of it. I'm a worrier. I've tried my relaxation DVD, I've tried lavendar, soothing music, cold compress, aspirin and I don't know what else. If anyone has some suggestions I'd love it. I'm open to just about anything at this point.
