I have been in and out of the hospital for the past 10 days because of a migraine that refuses to leave me alone.
My doctor gave me narcotics and nausea medications that have helped a little but have also made things worse.
When I was in the ER last night the doctor gave me morphine that made the pain vanish while they were running a bunch of tests and figuring out what they could about my head pain. The nurse was an idiot and said I was a whiney child and shouldn’t complain about a headache. I wanted to slap her, but I was on drugs so I couldn’t. She was a nurse and was telling me that I had no right to complain about a migraine. I was speechless.
Here I am now getting ready for my first day back to work and I am terrified. I am out of my Norco and my nausea meds and I have to return for a 10 hour day at work. I am not sure how things are going to go considering it will be day 11 and my pain is still 15/10. My head is in screaming pain and no one understands and I have no idea how I am supposed to explain to my Manager how the pain is and what she can do to help work go by smoothly. I don’t know what to say or anything in this situation. My head hurts so bad that even sitting here typing on this forum begging for help hurts.
I keep running to the bathroom to throw up and the pain is seriously progressively getting worse and I don’t know what to do. I cannot keep going to the ER and the stress of being scared of losing my job is just getting worse.
Can someone help or give me suggestions or anything? because I am lost and I have no clue on where else to turn…
I am 22 and working at a retail cashier associate situation.
I hope I put this in the right section but I doubt it
