:( Week long migraine

Postby Roseofsharon » Sat Mar 10, 2012 8:17 pm

I suffer with migraine and migraine variant. This week has been a whole week of maigraine variant. My eyes have been swimming and losing focus, my balance has been off at times and I haven't been feeling very well. All day today my I have not been able to stand very well. I Know what it is because I landed in hospital last time it got really bad, but I've never been this bad before. I phoned my best friend tonight and she agrees with me that I should go to the doctor and get it checked. We agreed that I should go tomorrow as if I go tonight I'll end up having to walk home and that's not good. So first thing tomorrow I will be going to the hospital and getting it looked into :(

I feel for you, because I'm a migraine sufferer too, and just lately mine have included all kinds of horrible symptoms including aphasia and loss of short term memory - at least I HOPE its the migraine! :lol: The chiro often helps because my neck is damaged and will often trigger a migraine if I kink it badly.

Certainly if your migraines are getting worse or changing, it's a good idea to get checked out. I went back to the doc last year because I was getting a lot of them in a short period and he gave me some new drugs. Now I don't go anywhere without them, because they can switch off an aura like flicking a switch. I don't like to take them too often though.

Good luck at the doctors!

Thanks for your replies, I'm feeling much better today so I will make an appointment with the gp I like on Tuesday to say that I had a week long migraine, the only way I shifted it was to take a double dose of my migriane meds (gabas).I don't want to do this regularly as not only will I run out of them early, but I had a hard enough time to get them this time. If I make an appointment tomorrow with the practice I'll get put in with whoever is on duty tomorrow.

It might just be that the lack of meds at the beginning of last week needed a boost and that now I'm ok. I dunno. I've also got an appointment with my migraine specialist in a month's time, should I phone his secretary and tell her to get him a message that this has happened, after the surgery wouldn't issue the medication without a letter from him, and I ended up running out before I could see a doctor and get the prescription renewed? after all it was the hospitals fault really that I didn't get the meds on time.

Hi
I am a migraine sufferer as well, when i get a bad one they can last for weeks at a time and i am sick with them, nothing will take them away they just have to run their course with me.

My Gp went through everything he could think off to help but i still kept getting them back, i was sent to a neuro who changed my meds around and took me off some as he said they could be causing the migraines.

He tried me on a few different meds before finding one that has helped :woot: i have to take them twice a day, i still get the odd migraine but dont get them like i used to. So anyone suffering ask your GP to refer you to a neuro.

RoseofSharon - yes, I think I would contact your neuro's secretary and ask her to let him know about the week-long migraine. It might not get you seen any earlier, but if they have a cancellation, it just might! Good luck with that!
