sweety, at least you've found a place where you can find people who know what your going through. ERs and migraines are just no fun. BUt it is good that the DHE and combo helped. I have had DHE drips before, but they just make me throw up really bad, but it did help a few times. If it works for you, ask about Migranol, a DHE nasal spray, and I even used DHE self administered shots.
Be careful with the Fiorina and Fiorcet, b/c it can cause rebound headaches. don't take more that 2 on any pain med, OTC or Prescription is the general rule for us migraine sufferers.
I say all that, and I'm down to having to use Fentanyl Suckers for the really bad kickers, b/c ER docs and walk in Docs, were refusing to treat me. I get 30 for 3 months and they really help, you just have to be carefull not to use it to much.
I"m so sorry you have to suffer from this.
I hope you get the support and information your looking for and need.
PS:does your neuro have you on any preventatives, abortives, etc???
