this is an interesting treatment for my chronic migraines, the latest neurologist has suggested shooting a novacain derivative in the back of my head to try and numb the nerves in the hopes that it will provide some relief.
post shots yeah that didn’t do anything except hurt and numb the whole outside of my head. and these guys get paid for this kind of idiotic rx?
first monday in a month i’ve made it to work! head is so so, but i can manage. damn its hot outside!
what do i know….
after being poked and prodded then put through a multitude of testing the doctors are back to the original diagnosis i was given 25 years ago. migraines, only now they are much more severe and are present everyday with some-days being much worse than others. thanks a hell of a lot doc, you specialist are all a like until you spend a day in your patients shoes you will never fully understand the agony and the undue pain it causes everyone us, most of all ourselves. today i can barely see to write this, but wanted to while in the midst of one of my more excruciating moments. i’ve been prescribed dhe or dihydroergotamine, which is to be administered through a nasal inhaler. the drug itself has been around for 50 years, but was only available intravenously, it only recently has been made available for acute cases in an inhaler form. there are only two pharmacies that even carry the stuff and they are only open limited hours so it won’t be until tomorrow before i can get it filled and find out if the stuff works, otherwise i’m stuck with demerol which just masks some of the pain enough so that i can sleep. i still have been given no explanation to the swollen optic nerves or the fields being off. he had one diagnosis in his pocket and when that didn’t pan out there went all the other symptoms with no explanation. doctors are too smart for their own good and not always for ours……………..
i’ve been in the throws of a cluster migraine now for months. it wax and wains, but never goes away. the pain can be unbearable at times, yet life goes on. i’m at my wits end….
