2 weeks ago I started treatment for RMSF (tick borne disease) and a week ago today I developed a migraine with 8/10 pain, throbbing head, weakness, dizziness, nausea, photophobia, and some unsteadiness on my feet. Along with the inability to work. I have been to the ER 3 times and my PCP 3 times. I have only received relief for a total of 6 hours. Even in that 6 hours my pain was a 6.5/10. They are trying to treat my pain with narcotics, barbiturates, NSAIDs, anti nausea meds, and antibiotics for the RMSF. I've read that narcotics are not good for migraines. I am taking them every 4 hours!! I am miserable and don't know what to do. I am desperate for relief! Maybe I will call my PCP when they open. I've read on here about hospitalization for status migraine. Do I have this? The only tests they have done are bloodwork and an EKG. Would I benefit from hospitalization? I do not have a history of migraines. Just headaches. This has been the Most miserable week ever. Anyone have any suggestions? Will answer questions if you have any.
