I had commented how I was at the ER Saturday evening. My ER doc gave me a steroid pack to keep the cycle of migraine from coming back. I’m on the last full pill of steroid and I keep getting bad headaches at the back of my head where the migraine was last weekend. I don’t know if there’s anything specifically I should do or say to a doctor before I run out of steroids and it’s the weekend again.
I’m OK mostly during the day but when I lay down for bed that’s when the pain seems to start coming back. It feels like a baby migraine or whatever is still leftover. It woke me up last night at like 3am and I had to get up and take medicine. I have an appointment with my regular doctor next Tuesday to talk to him about trying preventatives again. My neurologist didn’t seem so concerned about putting me on Tramadol and trying anything else once I had told him I’ve tried soo many preventives and abortives with no relief. I haven’t had a migraine since May which is the longest I’ve ever gone in the summertime since I was 11. So I know food and alcohol aren’t triggers necessarily cause I’ve been drinking and eating anything and everything these past couple months.
Any suggestions would be helpful. If I need to go see a different doctor before next week (my regular doctor is booked this week) I will. I just don’t know if they can do anything for me if this migraine comes back. I don’t want another weekend of ER hell. I need to do laundry..I’m running out of socks. 🙁
