I think if you were having an aneuysm I dont think the pain would come & go. Ive heard it described as being the worst possible pain. Make an appointment with your doctor who can determine the type of headache you have been having & can prescribe something for you to take when you feel them coming on. Ask that doc for a referral to a neurologist who can better treat your headaches longterm. Take Care, DeniseView Thread
Dear Penguie....I have used accupuncture for fibro pain & it felt great but did not help in the long run. So you said in your previous post that you had a hangover effect from it? Can you explain what that is all about? If it works I guess its worth it!View Thread
Hi All....The migraines have begun again in sync with that time of the month for me, despite having tried taking ibuprofen daily for the last week. Maybe that protocol works for some but no for me. I will see what happens over the next week or so-if I have less migraines or the same as usual. At least I have the Maxalt to take the edge off.
Hi Els156...I had the Essure done a little over a year ago with very few problems. The only weird thing is that I get some terrible cramping the same time each month that awakens me through the night. I take 800mgs of motrin, place a heating pad on my stomach & it goes away in 15 minutes. This happens about 10 days before my period & is usually two nights in a row.
The procedure was easy-I would reccomend going under anesthesia in a hospital or because the cramping is intense. Once I awoke, they gave me iv pain meds which helped. The cramps only lasted about 20 minutes after I woke up.
The 2nd part of the procedure at 3 months to check that the fallopian tubes are indeed blocked sucked. You are fully awake & the cramps are intense when the dye goes through you. If I would have known how painful that would be & would have gotten something from my doc to take before hand.
All in all I am very happy with the procedure so far & I have less migraines since getting of of the bcp's. I used to migraine constantly but then again my neurologist also put me on different preventatives around the same time so im not sure if I get less migraines because of the meds, getting off the pill or both. I still get far too many headaches & am always looking for better treatments.
I hope this helps you with your decision. If you need anymore info let me know. Take Care...DeniseView Thread
Im sorry you are going through so much at your young age & pray you will find answers soon. Has any of the docs you have seen suggested that you may have fibromyalgia? Being that you have had a bunch of test done, I assume they have ruled out rheumatoid arthritis as well.
I have fibro & have all of the same symptoms as you including chronic daily pain throughout my entire body, chronic migraines, & sleep problems as well as many others.
There are different meds you can use to help with the headaches & the body pains, so be sure to talk to your doctor soon. Take CareView Thread
