I don’t know where to go now, the migraines are continuing to get worse and worse and nothing is working. I am on Cymbalta and Inderal for preventative, cyclobenzaprine about 5/7 days, doing trigger point injections, prolotherapy on my neck and jaw (pain possibly coming from that), starting botox once I can get the forms signed and undercoverage, craniosacral, massage, acunpuncture and then have abortive meds – imitrex, T3, tramacet I use no more than 1o days combined a month and gravol like candy. I also use ice, hot pack, essential oils almost every day.
I am SOOOO tired from doing all this and still having the headaches get worse. The general neurologist is useless, only recommendation is to up meds every 2 months and wait. Well I have been in the urgent care/ER 4 times this month and day to day pain is INCREASED. what am I missing?
I watch my diet (I also have severe food allergies so this is a stressful area), follow a sleep schedule to the tee (having nightmare and cold sweats lately tho), stay hydrated. I cannot exercise at this time because any movement of my head/body seems to trigger pulsating pain and triggers migraine.
I literally don’t know what else to ask to try … I’m 27 years old and I haven’t been able to work at all this week, I have no disability insurance because I’m a contractor and no significant other in my life. I literally HAVE to work because I have to pay for my meds and bills (no one in my family is in a position to help), but I am in too much pain to work and drive. Any suggestions would be helpful!I have no idea how to survive life with this severe of pain, is lying on the couch watching TV really living? I haven’t even been able to play with my cats this week because of the pain and I had to go into urgent care once, ER once and two extra trigger point injection appts and that was just to keep me from bashing my head against the wall. thanks.
