I'm now getting my migraines about once a week, or every two weeks. And they are always BAD ones, usually needing a shot to end them. I have stadol NS at home, but this last 24hr h/a it did nothing, but 3mg IM got rid of it. I don't want to get into a rebound cycle, but I don't know what else to do. For 24+hours I am vomitting, head pounding, can't move, crying, etc.
I got really upset the other night b/c I needed my mom to drive to go get a shot. she asked my dad "what to I do" and my sister said, "just let her puke". My fam. thinks I have a problem with pain meds.....no I have a problem with miserable pain that I want relief from. I hurt so bad to hear her say that. I'm the nurturing type, and she isn't, but if it was her with the migraines, i would in the bathroom getting her a rag, holding her hair, offering to take her somewhere, but she just either ignores me, or roles her eyes or something. Any time I talk about being sick she just cannot stand it, and roles her eyes. I feel the only person I get support from is my Mom. But even she thinks I have a pain med. problem. I just don't know what to do. a 22 year old should not be having to get a pain med inj. every two weeks, I understand that, but how do I deal with the migraines. I've been on litterally every medication known to treat migraines. With everyone I have, I do what everyone says, Imitrex Inj, then another after an hr, phenergan, toradol, stadol NS, and still no relief.
PS: Please pray I get this job I applied for at a daycare. I really want/need it. Its  between me an another girl.
