How are yall coping with the insane pressure and pain in your heads? I’ve got a 6mm herniation that my neurologist swears “is fine” and “just a birth defect” but I don’t believe him for a second. He’s got no idea what he’s dealing with based on the research I’ve done. I literally got my report and had to ask about the herniation because he wasn’t going to mention it. He’s more concerned with doing a CT scan for a sinus infection. (Not joking).
Im currently on tramadol and flexoral with an ice pack when needed (I found a nifty one on Amazon that wraps around your head and looks like a hat so I can wear it at work). As long as I can get the head pain under control I can caffinate my way through the rest of the day, but with the head pain comes all the symptoms (dizziness, fatigue, unbearable neck pain, facial numbness, inability to think or speak, etc). It just makes me want to cry because I can’t function and I’m a highly active, go get’em type of person.
So, how do you deal because I’m new to this. I’ve been dealing with migraines for about 9 years, but they’ve picked up in frequency from 5ish a month to 5ish a week. From “push, but its hard” to “not a chance in hell, girl. Go back to bed.” I can’t take it anymore and I need help.
