I broke down and went to the urgent care. And do I have a funny story. Some of it is muddled so bear with me. Hubby took me. We went in and I saw the only PA I trust, who just happened to be there. Yeah! So, he looked at my history and saw that I'd been in on the 17th already and asked if I wanted to try a shot of stadol and phenergan again. I said yes, please! I think I heard him order 300 mg of stadol and 50 mg of phenergan. I could have been just hearing things. My usual dosage is 200 mg of stadol. We stayed for the obligatory 15 min and then we left. I decided I was hungry, so we stopped and got Arby's and brought it home. Hubby said I fell asleep on my way up the stairs to our apartment, there are 4 flights. He said I wasn't even leaning on anything, just standing there, snoring. He woke me up. Then came dinner. I kept falling asleep while trying to eat! I put the reamaining dinner in the fridge and went to bed at 7pm. Hubby came and wole me up to take my regular meds and I got up to try and finish dinner. Not very successful. So, I gave up and went back to bed. Hubby said I kept saying all of these funny things and that I was acting "weird". I felt almost drunk and my mouth runs non stop when I'm drunk, which is never now, but years ago it was alot. I'm a happy drunk. Peace, Love and Happiness. I've never fallen asleep over my dinner. My hubby was a bit irritated with me. I felt bad, but I was so sedated that I couldn't do anything else. My migraine is almost gone, just the vague remnants remain and hopefully that will go too. I feel good. I hope that was the magic bullet. Wish me luck.
