Ten days and counting

I’m used to having a minor headache every morning and evening, but a full-blown Migraine headache each and every day for the last ten days? Give me a break! I called my neurologist a few days ago and asked for even more Relpax–my prescription ran out a bit ago but I keep having to order more to fill in the gap of time until I can go see him for my appointment in four weeks. Usually eighteen pills (three boxes at ungodly prices per box) would last me awhile. The first of the eighteen I asked for a few weeks ago. The most recent batch of six I bought from the pharmacy just three days ago–there are only two left, and I have 32 days until my appointment.

I’m going to have to call and beg for more.

I’m going to have to get the seasons to stop changing so that the weather doesn’t aggravate my head.

I’m going to have to get the rain to stop coming and going as it does so that the barometric pressure doesn’t wreak havoc on my brain.

I’m going to have to find something to do before I become a drugged-up hermit forever.

    Does your doctor have any concerns about Medication Overuse Headache? I would just worry that taking that much Relpax (or any treatment med, really) could be making you worse. I know firsthand how easy it is to slip into the habit of taking too much treatment medication and how hard it is to get out of it.

    I hope you get some relief soon.
