Oh Cranky - we should form a group - I felt like I was writing your last post myself. I have said it on here many times! My meds work and then the office folks in the neurologist's office treat me like I am a crack addictwhen I need refills! I loved how you phrased - call me a drug seeker, I am. You are correct. I guess I am, too. I want the meds that keep me from hurting hours or days on end. If I take what the doctor prescribed - Relpax, Prednisone, Zofran (if needed for nausea) and Dilaudid (ooooooh, that's the bad word right there), then I am fine! Sooooo, why does everyone seem to have such a stinkin' problem????? I am just like you - any time we have weather changes, specifically storms, I have a migraine. I could become rich being a weather forecaster!! But, now I have gotten where I try to suck it up and tough it out unless it gets really bad. Then, usually, I end up in the ER for IV Dilaudid because it has gotten so bad the Dilaudid by mouth won't work.
Thanks for your post! At least I don't feel so alone. I hate to tell anyone these days that I take all those meds - people truly look at me like I am a crack addict. Oh well - if migraine pain wasn't so bad, I would wish it on all the people that turn their noses up at me for taking my meds; however, I truly don't wish that pain on anyone!
Hope you get through the storms without pain!
