No Thank You

I had another whopper of a headache. It was so bad that S was begging me to let him take me to the ER. Sadly I refused. I made a follow up with my PA instead and just got back from that visit. She switched out the meds she gave me and referred me to a neurologist. She said it just doesn't sound like a migraine. And I posed the question "well, to me it seems that I hear and see a lot of people claiming to have a migraine, but they are functioning. I cannot even blink or open a door without excruciating pain, so does this mean that the "other people" cope better, aren't having migraines, or am I not actaully suffering from a migraine but something else?" Her answer, "well hopefully the specialist can help - it is their job."

Ohhh man!! That's awful! I sure hope they can figure out what's causing all this pain. I'm praying for you. Do you know when you'll get into the neurologist?

I had the same type of headache today, I just wanted to cry. I felt like I could not even think. And i had to go pick up theboys and drive home form work. Which I did wanting to cry, but crying would have made it hurt even more. I ended up taking my migraine med and a ativan, by the time T came home I was so spacey, and still had pain. If they figure it out let me know. My PC won't refer me to a specialist, she tells me it's PMS or just a routine migraine and I am just too sensative. Yeah, ....
