Hi there, don't know who else to ask. In Feb this year I had a stroke, completely out of the blue..or so I thought. After teaching myself to read again as well as lots of other silly everyday things like where do I keep the cups in the kitchen and how to use the microwave, how to ride my horse, I accepted my "new me". On my hospital discharge the Dr told me it wasn't a stroke, it was a migraine.
I was rushed in to resus and thrombolysed, ended up on the extreme end of the stroke ward with 24 hour care...and it WAS A MIGRAINE!!! Still life moves on and I got back to life or the new version
Fast forward 7 months.. I've just returned to work after spending 5 day unconscious in bed after having another migraine. NONE of the meds I have been given work, the Propranol type stuff turns me into a zombie with extreme nightmares, and the sumitran (or whatever that pointless tablet is called -We call in sum of nun) is useless. The pain is beyond anything.. the pressure put on my family is immense, I've got to work.
How the hell do you deal with it especially whilst most people refer to it as "just a headache"?
