migraine averted!

December 5th, 2009 at 06:43 am

I had "that feeling" today...the heaviness and "cloudiness" that come before the pain...I took my pill, just like the doctor said: BEFORE the pain... after about 30 minutes... I felt normal!!! Yay! No migraine...

((sigh)) if only the pills didn´t cost $13 each!

But, I have been having migraines more frequently lately, so my sister will get me an appointment with her neurologist. He has his private practice, but is also Chief of Neurology at the Social Security Hospital, so, I can go see him at his private practice and pay $35 if I need emergency care (getting an appointment through the SS system would take at least 3 months), but, can make regular appointments at the SS hospital ("free")to have a full check up so that I have a file at the SS hospital and, if I ever need it, I could get the CAT Scans and other exams done there.

Sorry, I know this is not very clear, but, for one, you´d have to know how the SS works here (let´s just say one of my former bosses, an American, used to call it the Social Insecurity! AND, they have been known to remove healthy kidneys and legs-- Someone hung the X rays the wrong way!!! and other stuff like that...the stuff of horror movies!...) People opt to pay for healthcare, if possible, even if they are covered by SS...

On the other hand, is 12:43 and I{m too sleepy to make any sense!

good night, everyone!

    I'm glad you were able to avert the migraine. I've heard they can be awful to deal with.

    That is great news. Unfortunately Imitrex caused horrible rebound headaches and I have been afraid to try the newer drugs, so I just take pain pills and muscle relaxants and can function fairly well with those. Hoping with the "change" will cause them to stop as they did in my mom.
