First of all I’ll like to thank the moderators for taking the time to go on here and check up on us. Before finding this site and getting migraines I was on a similar site for fitness and I know how difficult it is to read or browse through everything.
So about me, I’m 33, a mother of 2 little girls and now on and off of disability for about 10 weeks. In California we get 12 weeks legally before our job isn’t secure anymore. Idk? I’ve been getting migraines since I was 10. I didn’t get officially diagnosed until I was 19 and in the navy. From that age of 19 to 29 I would get 2-4 migraines a month usually menstrual migraines. As soon as I hit 30, I got pregnant and my body just shut down.
I was diagnosed with hypernemesis graveradarum basically that I threw up everything even water. I was doing so bad I started getting migraines daily,I had to take Norco for pain, and get
Magnesium infusions through ivs, I lost 20 lbs. If I lost 5 more I would of been hospitalized. Through all of this my baby was ok.
Fast forward to March of 2015, something happened which is triggering these migraines to come back. I’m not pregnant I’ve checked.
So now I’m in panic mode because this nurse practioner handling my case comes highly recommended .She sends me back to work knowing that I have chronic migraines and I work with not one but 2 monitors a very lit room and those are some triggers for me. Still sends me back, I had to call my primary Care physician, to get 2 weeks off until my Botox appt.
Now for this Botox appt I only got 7 days off work? And I’m getting migraines still? I’m scared, these doctors don’t want to issue any more notes to get days off from work ,what can I do? I can’t return to work knowing I’m going to get a migraine, I might process something wrong and causs the company a loss of $$.
ok, so now I leave my question open to all of you, will my condition, chronic migraine, with and without auora after one cycle of Botox leave me ready for work?
