I finally had my phone follow-up on 22 May after having the GON injections of local anaesthetic only (no steroid) on both sides of my head on 11 February. My neurologist was disappointed to hear that it hadn't really reduced the frequency of my headaches and migraines, though I told him I had not had a really bad migraine that wouldn't respond to a single Zomig all that month. That was a mistake as I had a humdinger of a 10 hour attack the following day! However, as I used to get three day completely disabling ones with sickness and photo/phonophobia until about 15 years ago, that was only 'really bad' for how I'm affected now. Usually, so long as I accept the situation and take a Zomig soon enough, I can get on with my day after a couple of hours.
Having looked at the potential side effects of Topirimate (which he had said he'd offer if the GONI didn't work), I told him I didn't want to take it as I already suffer from some of them due to other medical conditions. He has suggested Botox, but there's a two to three month waiting list, so in the meantime I shall just continue to manage my pain with paracetamol and Zomig - as I have been doing all my adult life.
