Sorry if I’m asking too many questions in one post. My migraines seem to be flaring up and I am not sure when to take an abortive. I’m on my third spell of the day today. A lot of time head pain is secondary, I get more dizzy, depersonalization, numb arms, shimmery eyes or blurry vision, nausea. If I suddenly felt like a hammer had hit my head then it would be clearer when to take the abortive. Any ideas? Also, neuro gave me injectable DHE and I know it can cause rebound, so how much would be too much? He only prescribed one per day and at that point migraines were only being bothersome week before and during menses.
And that leads me to my last question. When should you call the neuro because migraine has changed? I suspect the flare up has much to do with horrible weather changes and thunderstorms in the area. And I don’t want to waste the neuro’s time (I know I shouldn’t care, but I guess I am not at the point of utter desperation where things get so bad my life is totally disrupted and then I don’t care how often I call).
Hope this makes sense. I know none of you are doctors but I could benefit from people’s personal experiences. Thanks.
