I went to the ER for a pain shot after dealing with a horrible migraine and puking. He said "narcotics are good for treating pain" Migraines are a totally different type of pain and narcotics don't help them. YOu just get hight, knock out and wake up with another headache. you will get addicted to the medication...blahh blahh. (luckly he did give me a shot)
THen my mom starts talkingabout how I'm addicted to pain medications. I told her, right now, I may be a bit dependant on them. SHe was me go to to a "controlled envioronment" to get these drugs out of my system......
all the way home she talks about sending me to a year long inpatient program because I have a problem with depression, and pain medications.
I HAVE A MEDICAL PROBLEM, I do not need to be in some rehab place for a year. I told her I would go to pain magangment, counceling(tomorrow), and a nutrionist. I just got a job I start yesterday. I really want things to start getting better...but tonight I felt like I was being punished for something I can't controll. I have cried all night long, not much help with a migraine.
Then, they just coundn't uderstand why I was crying, so they said I have emotional issues........
I'm so tired. I jjust want to be well.
They don't understand that my migraine may NEVER go away and no doctor anywhere may be able to help me.
what do you do with imitrex,phenergan,toradol,and prevents. don't work.
Is it wrong to take narcotics when nothing else works.
I'm just so frustrated, angry, tired,exhausted.
thanks for letting me vent.
