Thank you for the well wishes as I’m going through this shit.
The meds gave me annoying acid reflux, and a bad taste in my mouth, but it is dulling the pain enough to be bearable. It’s like the pain has hit a wall, and I know its there and I can still feel it, still practically touch it, and yet it can’t break through the wall and actually cause me pain; a disembodied migraine.
Before my concussion escalated the pain to a whole new level, I’d ended up in Emerg twice begging them to help me with the pain. Back then, the pain relief was cool as it flowed into my veins, swift to remove the pain, and long lasting enough that for a few weeks I was in heaven. I’m saddened but unsurprised that it could have the same effect this time. But that was then, and this is now, and I’ll find a way to move past this regardless.
Tomorrow morning I’m going to the Emergency room in the hopes they can hook me up with some painkillers via IV. I have a referral to a post-concussive clinic, and to a neurologist also. Finally, things are happening.
Nearly 5 months of constant, non-stop migraine pain is turning me into the Hulk.
