Time to see all the doctors

To anyone reading this, I hope you had a great weekend!

Mine was pretty traumatic.

Saturday was Day 7 in Migraine Hell and the pain was the worst I’ve felt in a really long time.  I could barely move from the couch.  I took all the meds I possibly could, trying to avoid going to the ER…

…But I ended up there anyway.  At 1 am, I finally gave in.  I should have gone at 1 pm–12 hours earlier–but I was being stubborn.  I learned my lesson the hard way.  Luckily, there weren’t too many people in the ER at 1 am, so even though “migraine” doesn’t typically get treated quickly in the Emergency Room, I had blood work done and was lying in a hospital bed in a dark room within an hour.

Unfortunately, luck wasn’t on my side.  They gave me a “cocktail” of medications through an IV (plus fluids), and *something* triggered an insane panic attack.  I was stuck there, thinking I was dying, and I just wanted to go home.  SO TERRIFYING!  I received another medication, and this one calmed me down enough to fall half asleep.  Sometime after 5 am, I was feeling “better” (aka super out of it) and I was able to go home to sleep.

Yesterday was recovery day at home.  I still  felt panicky and had a less-evil migraine to deal with.

And now today is Monday.  I am making appointments to go see allllllll the doctors.  Back to my primary, back to my neurologist, back to the chiropractor (although that’s a given, since I always see him every other week )… going to get another MRI done… and I have to schedule an appointment with an ENT about TMJ.

What a life.  I am only 30 years old.  Been dealing with this crap for 16 years.  Too much pain.  After I just had a couple good weeks at the beginning of July!  When will it get better?  Will I ever be normal?

*Fingers crossed*

  1. I’m sitting here wondering how much longer I can handle it too… I see my pain specialist in a week, just trying to wait it out. I hope the ‘cocktail’ will do the trick for you, hang in there ❤

  2. Don’t give up hope.
    I had daily migraines for over 2 years, and chronic before then.
    I’m not sure what’s helping, but I’m having a drastic reduction in headaches. We did change meds and I added supplements. Whatever happened I’m grateful.
    It may all come back, but right now I’m enjoying these “good” days.
    Have hope. ♡
