Well, I went to see my neurologist yesterday and I was pleasantly surprised.
asked about my relief from the headaches, etc. and the said that he was
going to increase my Verapamil to try to keep the headaches at bay. He
also prescribed Imitrex (100mg) for when my migraines start and Frova to
take if the migraine continues more than 1 hour.
He said that my
migraine symptoms are typical and that treating them is tricky due to
the Fibromyalgia, saying that the two (migraines and fibro) feed off of
each other and exacerbate the issue.
He then gave me a shot of
Phenergan and Nubain in the hip and I was good to go (since I was going
straight home). All this and I was in and out in 20 minutes and on
The shot that my neurologist gave me lasted for about 6
hours. I was headache and pain free during that time! It was like my
body went on vacation and was totally OK. I wish that I could have that
shot every day...lol
So here I am, with a small headache, but generally decent.
