A few days ago I was done with the pain and the ringing in my ears and being dizzy and just feeling sick so I finally called my neuro and told his nurse that all of the stupid migraine meds and the worthless pain meds didn't work and I had CM not a damn migraine and I couldn't take the pain anymore. She asks me how long I have had the headache, I told her 4 years. She says no seriously, again I told her 4 years. She says hold on let me ask Dr. what he wants to do. After a couple minutes on hold she tells me he says go to the hospital entrance D as in Dog...like I didn't know what "D" stood for...to get an infusion. I get there and every nurse there tells me "Let's get this migraine under control" Every time they said that I just calmly told them that I had Chiari Malformation not a migraine. Nobody had a clue what I was talking about. The nurse who came in to give me 2 shots in the butt asks me where my pain was my answer "37" She says "Wow that's quite a migraine" and again I tell her I have CM, she replies with "I have never heard of that" So I told her long story short my brain is falling out of my head...and then I just smiled at her...Her face was priceless. She gives me a shot of dilaudud and torodol and comes back in about 15 minutes and says "Is your pain still at a 37?" I said no about a 15, she smiled and walked out. She comes back about 35 minutes later and asks me where my pain is and I told her about a 5 and I can deal with that...She tells me I can go home. I start to jot down my vitals and all of that good stuff all of the drugs they gave me and she walks back in and asks me if I am ok. I look at her and say yup why? She said " I told you that you could go home, I said I know I was just writing a few things down then I will be out of your way...sorry.
After 4 years of wanting to cut my head off and throw it at the doctors and idiots that tell me that it is just a migraine I can finally say I felt relief and it was great! The only bad part was I went to bed and woke up the next day with that crappy headache again but hey at least I had a few hour right. :)
