Yeah so the beast headache is working on what, week 3?

I wish I could say this sucker was gone but nope, not so much. The Tramador did not work on Friday night/Saturday morning. Instead the headache took over, made me nauseuous and shakey. Now here's the problem with mondo headaches, they are like dragons. Once you let them run amock getting them back down is really not so easy. So where before the ibuprofin could take it down to a 0 (on a 1-10 scale) now it can only take it to a 2-4 or so. It makes life hard to be in. So now I take my pills every 5-6 hours and wait for the dr to call back. I've made 2 calls into him but it's Monday, you never know if they'll get back to you on a Monday. They do have a number of my pharmacy to call something in to. I also have some vicodin or something at home I can probably slap myself silly with this evening. Which may be my best option. Then maybe I can go back to taming this bitch of a dragon headache cause damn if I have not had enough of this chronic brain pain.

Take it from a gal who suffered migranes for years, don't be afraid to take the strong pain meds if need be. You are right, migranes will get you down in a hurry. The best thing to do it take meds as soon as you feel it coming on. Tame the beast, yes. It took me a while to realize this. But please believe me. You won't turn into a druggy or anything. There is a reason for the strong pain meds, migranes are just one of them.
