Hi, I am new to this forum and a new migraine sufferer. I am a 45 year old healthy female. While at work in April had an aura with right sided weakness/numbness and was rushed to hospital to rule out a stroke, which they did. I was diagnosed with an aural migraine. i was bedbound for almost 6 weeks before I found the a physcian to help me.
It is now almost 6 months later and i have not been pain free for 1 minute. I have nerve pain in my head at all times, it is not a pounding migraine but my dr. considers it an intractable migraine. I had no idea people had to live like this. they initially tried indomethicin ER three times day with compazine & verapamil...this combo got me out of bed.I am still suffering with daily headpain, had infusions and am now on all new meds that include nortryptilline, neurontin and celebrex...
Has anyone experienced anything similiar to this? I feel very helpless & hopeless right now. Trying to make my way to Johns Hopkins but very hard to get appt there.
any similiar experience or way to cope would be helpful.
