pure pain

I am a mother of four that in itself is enough to give any a headache. Mine never seemed to end.

I was 27 at the time the migraines started I had three boys at the time and was struggling to function . I set an appointment with my primary care physician who scheduled an MRI. The next day I went in for my MRI which looks very imposing the thought of is this an aneurysm had crossed my mind.I had to wait a week to have my results read by a neurologist who diagnosed my with having chronic daily migraines.

My doctor prescribed me some prescription strength ibuprofen which did absolutely nothing to ease the pain. My doctor then proceeded to prescribed an antidepressant which did nothing for the pain and made me feel like a zombie. My husband suggested that I try excedrin this is the only product that has ever gotten rid of the pain. So I feel like me and can be there for my family. I would recomend to anyone who suffers try excedrin

    Thanks Katie I have seen a neurologist who gave me the diagnosis of chronic daily migraines he and my primary care felt that ibprophren was the best solution but that offered little to no relief I really feel that Excedrin is a great choice thanks for your feed back

    Stacie,
    I’m so glad that Excedrin works for you. You’re the second person today that said in their story that this drug works for them. Check out Tony’s story: http://migraine.com/stories/and-the-beat-goes-on/

    If your Migraines ever become more intense and you feel you feel you may need more guidance, I suggest that you look to find a Headache Specialist. You mentioned going to your Primary Care Physician, who is not going to have as much training as a neurologist who has had additional headache training. In case you are interested, here is a list of specialists:

    Take care!
