The last few months I've been having 27 migraine days each. I typically have persistant aura but not like the last few months (visual & auditory hallucinations the whole gamut). I'll be on day 7 and spend the day watching everything ripple like the ocean, melting together.
I also have General dystonia which is a blessing in the sense that those meds are migraine preventatives. I also take depakote, verapamil and just started Botox. Multiple rounds of steroids.
I fall into the group of people that shouldn't take triptans. After multiple attempts to break them in ER & urgent care I begged my dr to let me try Maxalt again, Midrin, imitrex injections. Nothing breaks them. Max relief is 2 hours.
During this time I've started getting ice picks nearly every afternoon
They always come back and go on for 2-11 days. I haven't had a break since 8/2.
I'm terrified of MOH so I try to rotate my meds. I spend days going without in tears. Even ER seems like a waste- and my entire medical team seems to agree.
Could this be MOH? I'm at the point where I'd stop all my meds as I'm in tears daily regardless. I just wonder about the persistent severe auras & the pain worsens throughout the day.
I just lost my job & insurance due to being on medical leave. I'm so over this.
