Hi everyone thanks for your great site and your help!
I have had for about three years, maybe longer, headaches lasting two-three days after consuming EVEN A SIP of alcohol, and recently I have concluded it is migraines. It’s in the back of my head on one side, always the same place, and always after alcohol and sometimes after fast food, like mexican or chinese, so I assume it’s MSG. I get a pain in the same place at other times. NSAIDs don’t work.
Anyway, my doctor gave me Imitrex and it did not work. I took 50 then 100, and I felt my feet go numb but the headache remained. So I had a trigger, derr.. some vodka (literally one, I know this is not a hangover) and when I got home I took another 50 mg imitrex. I woke up feeling like I weighed 500 lbs, but maybe headache had left? By the time I knew what was going on, I saw that yeah, the headache had remained. I felt tired and had trouble speaking as usual.
So if triptans didn’t work, could it be something other than migraine? The main seems to be in my neck and behind my eye on one side– I haven’t had an injury there but could it be?
My doc gave me Zyprexa to try but I’m not excited nor optimistic about it. Does imitrex not work for other people?
