My migraines have gone chronic the last year, it has been 7 months since I have had ANY pain free moments, even pain meds only bring it down to a 1-3. I’m on a waiting list for our headache clinic but the wait is 12-14 months (so next summer sometime). I have many days where I curl up and do nothing but cry because it hurts but I can’t take anything because you know there will be a day that is worse.
It is unbearable some days and the only thing that helped me through is that I had a general neurologist appt today and we would find something to help. Well, the only thing he has is to continue not using pain meds more than 10 days a month and we will up the preventives I’m already on, one at a time every 2 months.
Ok great but what do I do in the meantime!? I’m in so much pain daily, I don’t have a life, my boss is getting very upset with me only be able to work 20-25 hours a week but I CANNOT lose any salary because I’m single and own a house, I have no savings at the moment either because of this.
I need to be able to function daily! Just don’t know what to do ….. Any tips greatly appreciated.
