I've always gotten head aches and migraines, but I could always get rid of them by just sleeping them off, but this migraine is a force to be reckoned with. I've had it since I woke up on November 8th, it's now November 29th and it's still going strong...I gave up all things caffeine about 2 months ago and even those head aches weren't this bad.
It hurts to move my eyes, the light hurts, every sound I hear seems to be amplified and feels like my head is going to implode. I'm slightly nauseous, and smells are starting to make it worse.
I've tried everything my doctor suggested: cold packs, Gingko Biloba, Excedrin, Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Aleve, and Tylenol. (I've taken them all separately; I never mix medications)
What should I do?? I'm open to pretty much anything, because I can't see my doctor until December 18th, and I can't afford an ER visit.View Thread
