I have started having these headaches and am not sure the cause. They are getting to where they are interfering with my daily life, lasting up to a couple days, even through the night. Last night I was having strange thoughts, seeing flashes of lights (only a couple times). I believe they are migraines. Thing is, I have never had this before. I am 40, no health problems and I take no meds for anything. The strange thing is, ibuprofen has not helped at all. I have never not had ibuprofen provide at least some relief for pain. I tried Excedrin Migraine as well and that just kept me up all night, awake with a headache.
So, I was thinking of seeing my doctor today. I never go to the doctor and have not seen one while in monitoring d/t no meds. My DOC is alcohol. I have done well to fly under the radar, not seeking medical help at times as I do not want to have to bring in all the Tpapn forms and have a doctor fill it out for prescribing me something like amoxicillin. But now, with 4 months left I think I am going to have to! I am hoping to try something preventative like imitrex or propanolol. I honestly don't know if I need a CT to rule out something. The strange thoughts I mention, are just like picturing the wrong thing in my head for the word I mean. For example, I was lying in bed last night thinking about texting my house "sup" but pictured it spelled soup and thought of chicken noodle. Does that make any sense? Am I losing my mind?? Any migraine sufferers out there? and if so, is that what it is like?
This post is all over the place I know. I guess what I am asking is, do I have to report every med prescribed? I really don't know since I haven't dealt with it. I have mentioned this before but I am on my 4th case manager in less than 3 years and have no rapport with her.
