Hello dear reader,
Welcome to anyone who’s reading for the first time, who’s here again and many thanks to those who’ve become followers. If you have a blog, then I’ve probably popped over and had a look and signed up to keep in touch. Thanks especially to those of you who contact me personally be email, it’s always a pleasure.
Well, a migraine descended on my head on Saturday night and I was tucked up with dihydrocodeine by seven O clock and out for the count. I was awake here and there, just enough to take more pain killers every four hours and the chuffin’ thing managed to go away yesterday afternoon. I don’t think I’ve ever been so sick and thrown up that much since I was pregnant!
It’s scared me to the point that I’m going back to my GP as the pain is unbearable, not to mention the inability to stand, hold anything, drink, sit up and every time it happens, I think I’m having a stroke as I can’t speak. The side effects of the meds are extreme too and have left me with third degree stomach upsets, yellow eyes and joint pain that requires a whole different type of pain killer! I may not get these very often but they are getting a whole lot worse.
I have a good GP practise but I need this looking into and will ask what can be done! Any advice? Anyone with crippling migraines? What treatment is out there? Also, I have a digestive disorder that’s aggravated by anti-inflammatories (I can’t take ibrufen or anything similar) so the migraine meds seem to get me through the head pain but leave be in agony everywhere else.
So fellow bloggies, any ideas? I know my medical practise, unless you go in there forewarned and forearmed, you’ll just leave with a polite fuck off and don’t cost us money we don’t have and the cheapest generic medication they can prescribe. But, go in there with a request and they back down and oblige.
I’m sure someone has some advice. The GP will see me at the end of surgery tonight (or sooner if they call and can fit me it) so any advice will be helpful.
