Hi WPOD1 I have been diagnosed with rebound headaches due to Migraines by the Neuroscience and Pain Clinic. I was on Fiorcet, Norco 10/325, Maxalt and Excedrin. I saw my Neurologist today and we will try increasing my Topamax each week to see if that helps me get off the Norco. I have gotten off the Fiorcet and excedrin so far. And the neurologist said if all else fails and I can't do it on my own she can put in the hospital for a couple of days to help get me off all pain meds if I need to. I am celebrating my Golden Wedding Anniv in 2 weeks so I want to enjoy that!!! She agrees. I was just wondering if anyone else has undergone this diagnosis. Thanks PatView Thread
I recently underwent the series of injections of botox for my migraines. I know there are some side effects, but has anyone had extreme weakness in the neck and shoulders at the site of some of the injections? I am having extreme weakness. Also, having many more headaches than I had before the botox. I am going back in to see my neurologist on Monday. Would like to know if others had similar experiences. Thanks PatView Thread
Hi, I have just gotten botox injections about 6 days ago and I am still having bad headaches everyday along with neck and shoulder pain. In fact the same day I got the injections, that very night I had a headache I thought my husband was going to have to take me to the e.r. for it was so painful and the worst one I ever had. Like you I am hoping as the days go on that it will get better. I am taking migraine meds every day also I use maxalt (very good) but I don't want to keep taking this either all the time. I hope I didn't make a mistake in doing this.
