ouch my head

Postby yummymummy » Fri May 25, 2007 11:04 am

I woke up with such a bad headach yesterday that by 730 I had to ring hubby and get him to come home from work because I could bearly stand I was so disorientated, vomiting, had vertigo badly and was vomiting. All from a stinking headache :cry: Im thinking its time for a trip back to the doctors, anyone on medication for migranes? I tried them about 12yrs ago and they did nothing for me, but Im hoping they have some new ones out these days

Nope, though I feel for you.
I started getting migraines in my early teens. Then a chirodontist (don't ask) told me he thought it was triggerred by stress, and hey presto they disappeared! I get them occasionally now, once or twice a year. Even only that many is too many. I usually get them in the morning, get visual disturbances, then the pain starts, then I just want to cut my head off so it will go away, then someone, anyone, brings me a cup of tea and I find a way to lie down that doesn't make it worse and manage to fall asleep. If it's really bad I chuck first. I don't bother will painkillers - they don't work. Then I wake up some hours later with just a background ache, take painkillers and spend the rest of the day in a fog being pretty much useless for anything.

I hate migraines.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

My hubby suffers from severe everyday headacks for years from arthirites in his neck from a bad car accident. A couple of months ago he went to a chiropractor & they put pressure on the pressure points on his necks & cracked somthing & it has made a hudge difference. Hope you get better soon

Im feeling fine today just a bit vague but man Ive never had pain like it it hurt soo much, It seems to happen more in the week before my period so maybe its hormone related, Im not sure, Ive got an appointment with my gp next, hopefully she may be able to prescribe something

My MIL suffers from really bad migranes and she takes Immogrin (SP) apparently it is a very expensive tablet to have ($20 each) so she gets five and takes half at a time when she has a headache!
2008 - my year to be great!!
