I have had a headache for the last 4 days and nothing is touching it. Grrr
Today I want to talk about you at Imatrex; the medication I take for my migraines.
This medication really works. Sometimes it takes a little bit, but it does work. Oh my gosh,I just took my last one (which means of course now I’m going to have to pray that I can get a refill) but, this is the first one I think I have gotten this month.
I give myself an injection of Imitrex in my thigh or upper leg. I have my friend put it together ahead of time so I don’t have to call her to come over. I can start doing it soon but my hand is still really, really sore.
Anyway, when I give myself an injection of Imitrex, I can feel the hot liquid hitting every pain point. I mean every one; if you have a sunburn but you forgot about, this medication is going to hit it and it is going to burn. So, you can feel the medication working and after it goes all the way through your bloodstream and hits all your pain points, of course including your brain, then you need to sleep it off for about 3 hours. When you wake up either the headache is gone or at least it’s bearable to where you can take some Tylenol.
I just ordered something else for migraines called Migraine Stop. Apparently, this has a mixture of Magnesium, Zinc, etc. It is all natural, which is supposed to stop the migraines or at least cut down the duration. It has really good reviews, so I’m going to try it.
Just wanted to to check in and share my migraine medication.
I am going to see a new Hand Doctor today. The last one I saw was horrible. He had no bedside manner, no sense of humor and. no personality at all. He gave me Prednisone and when my hand blew up 3 times the size of my normal hand he only said “well that doesn’t usually happen so fast, just elevate it and get some rest.” I was in so much pain there was no way. So, I call Lyft and went to the emergency room. I was there for 5 hours. But they finally got the pain to lessen. Needless to say I am not going back to him. Wish me luck with this new one
My knee is healing well and I should be out of my brace by the 28th. This brace is a heavy pain to carry around but it is helping my knee stay in place.
I have started the process of slowly getting my house to where I want it. I love the views from here.
I went to the Social Security Office and finally started the process of changing my name back to my maiden name.
I think I have put that off for a few reasons. I think I really wanted him to change and come back but that isn’t happening and I am going on. I don’t want to be attached to someone who is continually getting himself in legal trouble. The last day will be the DMV and I will be completely free. The other reason I haven’t done this for a while, is because I got hurt. It’s hard to get out do anything.
Finally, everyday I play my favorite song pretty much morning and night.
Kelly Clarkston, What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger..
It’s my theme song for this year
So the other night was really bad;my hand doctor put me on medication that I had had when I had a kidney transplant (forgive me I forgot the name of it) Anyway this meant I was supposed to take this medication 6 times a day and I had taken it 4 and my hand popped up totally and was in absolute agony. I called The Hand Doctor twice; I should say they paged him twice, before he answered then he called me back sounding all put out because I had to page him and said “well I’ve never heard of that happening so quickly and maybe just try to lay down and Elevate the hand.” By 1:30 in the morning I was in absolute agony and I call Lyft and had them take me to emergency. Needless to say I was there all night and got absolutely no sleep. This was about two days ago; so for the last two days since I’ve been back, almost all I have done is sleep. Is there a such thing as too much sleep? My body is off. It’s like I’m wide awake now at 4:30 in the morning but I don’t know if I’ll last all day. And my handyman is coming over to paint and get quite a bit done.
Aside from that, let’s see, I believe I fixed this blog so that I can put pictures and video up. At least I’ve
done pictures. I’ll have to work at the video but every morning and night I listen to Kelly Clarkson Stronger and I actually feel stronger, at least mentally. I am going to get over this and be stronger physically soon too.
I hope you all have a great day
. Oh, hey, if you are experiencing daylight savings time like I am, how do you like it? Personally I think it’s ridiculous. It just messes up with your body it messes up your time schedule like seriously why are we messing up with time and why are we messing up with clouds? Those are things that should be left .alone in my opinion.
Something’s going on with my ex and nobody is telling me which is very annoying. All I know somebody slipped to my friend because he thought she knew already and when she asked how D is doing, he said he’ll be back soon. So where is he? I pray he is okay.
It’s hard when you still love somebody and it’s doubly hard when they keep you in the dark. I can only think of horrible scenarios that could have happened and I really pray that none of those did. Although if they did maybe he’ll get clean? But I doubt it.
Okay, onto something else, apparently I have sprained excuse me I haven’t sprained, I have fractured my wrist and my knee. Happy joy joy. No wonder I’m in so much pain.
I sure hope I can heal by May. I have a trip planner and I really want to go.
*D. has been arrested once again for graffiti and should be out, next week. I pray his mom, or someone, has the dog
I have been a Headache/Migraine sufferer for years. I will wake up with a headache and go to sleep with one. I usually take a Tylenol every morning and night. .until now.
Yesterday, I got the Daith Piercing. The pain getting it done was unbelievable. I had read the piercing might help Migraines. So, last night I tested it out. I did not take any Tylenol before bed, and surprisingly, I do not have a headache after or during waking up. I am stunned! Of course my ear will take a long time to heal.
I have been having a few minor bits of pain today and needed Tylenol help the ear.
I’ve discovered the problem but, not the solution.
Apparently, I ran out of my TACROLIMUS (anti – rejection) and came across the same size bottle; not realizing it is Topiramate- Topamax 50mg (Migraine Med)
I take Tacrolimus 3 pills in the morning and two at night. I take Topiramate 1 tab in morning only. The doctor said 2 was okay but, it wasn’t helping and I didn’t like what I had read about it. I tried to end it before and doctor said No.
Needless to say, with my mistake, I have been taking 200mg Topiramate in the morning and 1 50mg (one hundred fifty) at night.
I am having severe side effects , and am waiting for doctor to tell me the next step.
