Hi I'm Clare. I'm new here.
I'm looking for a bit of advice.I normally get migraines frequently, I am just used to putting up with it and taking my sumitriptan.
How ever 2 weeks ago after having a migraine fir two weeks solid I collapsed because my migraine was that servere. I stopped breathing and got took to hhospital. it was a very scary time. I have collapsed before but never stopped breathing.
They diagnosed me with chronic migraine.I have been out on propanalol and been told to keep up with the sumitriptans and paracetamol and ibuprofen. Which I have been doing. But I'm no better. I'm waking up with it. I've been off work now for the second week which makes it nearly 4 weeks since this started. I need to go back to work,I can't afford this time off. but I'm scared of collapsing at work if it gets too much again. I work with computers all day.Which makes it worse and the lights at work drives me insane.I'm pretty useless one I start because I get confused, can't think straight, my speech is difficult and I sound drugged up. I become very intolerant to noise and generally feel horrible.
Is there anything I can try or take so I am able to go back to work ? It doesn't have to fully make me feel better just enough so I can focus and not be disoriented?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
