I don't really know what to tell you. Maybe you should see another neurologist for a second opinion. If you sleep on your side you should get a pilliow made for a side sleeper that is firm. I know when I go in to the ER they usaully give me a shot of Toradol which helps and it's a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug which is differnet from a narcotic. I really think you need to get another opinion that's probably the best thing to do and see what they say for you to do. Maybe you can find a Migraine specialist or a Migraine center. I don't know what aviable in your area I don't have many resorces because I live in South Dakota. I hope this helps some. I know once I got a new firm pilliow for a side sleeper has helped a little. If you have any ideas for me let me know. Thanks, LauraView Thread
I often I wake up with a migraine so I take my medicine which is Fiorinal and try to go back to sleep but it doesn't help. I then have the headache all day and can do nothing.I take Topamax at bedtime to prevent migraines. When I get these headaches I often max out on my medicine so I take some Tylenol however I get no relieve and nothing I do helps. One other problem I have is that the neck muscles on the left side are very, very tight and that is the side where I get the migraine. I see a chiropractor once a month and he adjusts me and that sometimes helps. If anyone has any suggestions as to things to try for relief please let me know.
Hi, I hope someone can help me because I have had pretty much daily headaches for the past month. They get worse when a low pressure system moves in to the area. I take Topamax every night and Epidrin when I'm starting to have a headache. I also take Tyneol arthitis. I have been waking up with them and my meds aren't helping. Any advice would be welcomed.View Thread
