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.

Wow, I feel so bad for you. I hate hate headaches. I hope that the doctor has some new ideas. Have you tried the classic acupuncture? Would they do electric stimulation? (read about that in a article once regarding headaches)

acupuncture has been unsuccessful in treating my migraines. It has, in fact, made matters worse for me. I HATE acupuncture.
