I am in the middle of another excruciating headache with pain in my neck so bad I can barely turn my head. Of course it is the weekend, the end of the month and I am out of any and all pain meds that do anything to assist.I know my entire weekend is shot as the pain is so bad I can't function. I wasn't supposed to run out of meds but my Neurologist canceled my appointment for last Monday as he decided to take a long weekend and even though I had scheduled my appointment 2 months in advance all they could do is fit me in the second week of June.
I hate when things get like this and I know from experience it will last for days to weeks. The last time I tried to get help because my dr had said that if it got like this to go to the ER I went and the doctor there had the audacity to inquire if I had considered amputation of my head to resolve my pain issues since they couldn't find anything other than opiods to relieve the pain and they didn't want to administer those.
I get so tired of doctors telling me that "its just a headache" the pain can't be that bad, Narcotics don't work for headaches they only cause rebound. You need to drink more fluids, take some benadryl and aleve and all will be right with the world. blah blah blah blah blah.
Me I just want 30 days of no pain greater than a 5, no stabbing neck pain that prevents me from turning my head. 30 days of being able to not miss a day of work because the pain is so bad I can't get out of bed.
