It's something that I've had to deal with the past several years. I've tried a different assortment of drugs including giving myself a shot. *shrug*
I was relieved that after my hysterectomy I was headache free for a few weeks. Looking back I'm sure it was because I was on pain meds from having the surgery.
Then they came back...
with a vengeance. Not fun at all.
I've had more headache days than headache free days. It can be very crippling. I keep our house dark by not opening blinds. If I have to venture out I'm wearing super dark sunglasses because any light at all isn't my friend.
Yesterday, I went to see my favorite family doc of all time. He's super smart and makes me laugh. We talked and talked and then talked some more. He started me on a beta blocker, two times a day, to ward off headaches then he changed my migraine meds if I do get one while taking the beta blocker. The only thing I may not like is the "tiredness" that the beta blocker may bring.
Only time will tell if this works because it's a trial by error type thing with getting the right dosage of beta blocker. I will up my dosage on Wednesday if I still don't feel an improvement.
I go back in three weeks and I hope to have good news with my migraines.
Do you deal with them? How do you cope?
