My medication includes, Fiorinal 1 to 2 capsules every 4 to 6 hours as needed for pain, Compazine 5MG 3 times a day. Vitamin B2 and Magnesium Oxide. Ice helps the pain. Sunglasses helps my eyes, Quiet, no fragrances NO vanilla or shay butter, strong smells. No Bright lights. No Sharp sounds.
The pain never goes away. When it gets unbearable I stay in my room. I am almost use to all of the pain, one of my nurses said that I would get use to it. I am thinking she is right. I have been to the Doctor on a weekly basis to receive Toradol shots. This helps when the pain is unbearable. When the paralysis on my right side is really bad I use a cane or walker.
