I guess I don't really understand your question. The only thing I can think of is that the meds you're taking are causing rebound headaches. You get those when you take too many OTCs or narcotic meds for pain, and after they wear off, you get a headaches. Taking more meds may make it worse.View Thread
It seems you should get back on the Metoprolol, and if it helps you better than the cheaper issue, then you should get your dr to fax a letter to your insurance company telling them you need to take the one that helps you more. I have heard wal-mart has some cheap meds plan, but don't know of any others. Maybe go on the website of Metropolol and try to get on their plan for people who can't afford the medication to get it either free or at a discount. Also maybe your dr might have samples?View Thread
There are ways to get the meds you need. Amitriptyline which is almost the same thing costs very little, actually. If it's really bad, maybe you can go to the websites of the drug you need and apply to get them free if you qualify. Also, go to the county hospital where they have to treat you on a sliding scale basis. Does your state have health care for low income people? It would be a shame to not be able to get the meds you need to help you.View Thread
What did you get the surgery for? Was it for migraines, and did it help you? Don't know of any surgery that helps migraines. If you can't work because you are in pain all of the time, get a lawyer and also you have to have the neuro state on the papers that everything he has given you does not work and you can't get to a job. Maybe if you try to get Social Security disability it will work out better. If you get better later, you could return to work if your neuro says you can.View Thread
Not sure if anything that's helped by the CPAP would cause headaches, but I will say that it is much more likely that whatever the dr gave him that he didn't take will work before an over-the-counter herb will. It has not been proven that co-q works for people who get migraines, although some people have had improvement with it. On top of that it's quite espensive.
Much of the time migraines aren't caused by anything except hereditary issues. The best thing to do is to work with your dr, and if he or she can't help you, ask for a referal to a headache spec/neurologist who can help quite a bit in most cases.View Thread
