Migraine Update

The Migraine Saga Continues.  I saw my neurologist on Thursday and my blood pressure was through the roof (shocker!  Amazing what happens when you're in pain)... well, through the roof for me anyway; it still wasn't THAT high by most people's standards.  Otherwise, my neurological exam revealed nothing extraordinary or unexpected.  My left side was dragging a lot, but that wasn't surprising.  SO... the neurologist prescribed a six day course of Prednisone.  If it was going to work, he said, it would probably work right away.  Today is Day 4 and... not so much with the working.

So I'll be calling tomorrow again.  I haven't the foggiest idea what the next step is, but I do know that I still have these darned migraines and I don't know how many more options I've got for breaking this cycle.  I"m hoping my neurologist has more tricks up his sleeve.
