Aug 6, 2018 · Migraine for 28 days and counting HELP in Brain & Nervous System

Understood. It just makes me feel panicked and crazy. I get very sleepy which isn't a bad thing but, going in and out of sleep and a panicked state is miserable.

It amazes me that Dr's know about this side effect and still choose to order it.

I currently take Trazadone for chronic back pain & neuropathy to help me sleep. So far it hasn't helped.

When I went to ER I specially asked them not to give compezine. It gives me the same feelings. I go into a panic attack that last for several hours. It makes me feel like I need to go home RIGHT NOW! Horrible drug.

I have never had a migraine that lasted this long. It’s scary. The pressure with my job doesn’t help.

Aug 6, 2018 · Migraine for 28 days and counting HELP in Brain & Nervous System

I have had migraines as long as I can remember. I get cluster migraines as well as status migraines. Sometimes they last a short time and others up to 3 days. I was taking Fioricet or sumatriptan which seemed to work for the most part.

This time it’s been different…I got a migraine 7/10/2018 and have had it consistently for 28 days now with Aura everyday. I have seen a Neurologist and was prescribed a variety of medications at different appointments. They are:
Prednisone 60mg (6) days then taper off for (5) days
Midrin
Naratriptan
Sumatriptan Nasal Spray

I was also given samples of Zomig.

All of the medications minus Midrin brought down the intensity of the pain for a short period but, nothing has broken the cycle yet. Midrin put me out for a day and a half but, I woke up with headache.

Neurologist has been wanting to admit me to the hospital for IV treatment but, I really don’t want to be in hospital unless I know it will for sure help. I have a lot of responsibilities at work that won’t allow a hospital stay. To top it off because I’ve had this migraine for so long my boss called me in for a meeting about my performance. I essentially got into trouble because my head hurts so bad I can’t think or function properly. I fear that my job is in jeopardy and if I am out for a few days in hospital maybe that would be the excuse to let me go.

I had an MRI which showed a hyperintense signal. Neurologist doesn’t think this is anything to be concerned about.

I went to ER on July 26th and they gave me a migraine cocktail that made me sleepy but, didn’t help the migraine. The attending physician wanted to admit me but, gave me the option to go home and rest. Migraine was slightly better in the morning but, rapidly increased intensity throughout the day.

Has anyone experienced something like this? What should I do to get rid of the migraine? Any recommendations are appreciated. Thank you in advance .
