You sound as if you need urgent help.

You need to wake up your husband - ask him simply that it is time to call
(or to take you) to get some emergency help.

You need to do something. Now.

This bad spell has been lasting too long - some urgent intervention is needed.

You are not well enough to do anything yourself more -
you need other's to step in and help with an urgent medical intervention.

I am terribly sad and moved by your suffering.
It breaks my heart to hear about you unbearble pain.

Do not give up.
I was there once but over the years of fighting back things have changed and improved considearbly and to a large degree I began to get more of my life back when I almost given up.
Do not loose hope.
Start by waking your husband.

Wendy, I would go if I were you. You really need a break from the pain. I hope by now you have been able to get some help.
Hugs,
Cindy

Oh, Wendy, I hope you were able to wake your husband and have him help get some help for you. I totally understand where you're coming from. I hope by now that you're feeling better.

Go to the ER, my friend. You need intensive medical intervention from what you have been sharing here.

Hey Greeneyes,

1. Go to the ER and have your husband by your side. Ask him to demand intervention in your pain.
2. If you and your doctor do not have a good working relationship, shop around. there are plenty fo doctors about. find one you can relate with.

But this painful episode has to end. Time for the ER.

Hi Greeneyes,

I do hope that you feel better soon, it must be awful.

If it was up to me I would go straight to the A and E, at least they could offer you something for the pain, they can not leave you to suffer without trying to help. Ask them to refer you to the EAU unit at least you will get to see a consultant and they can access you properly,

Peter, sorry mate, beg to differ, then can leave you in pain...they did it with me....they asked what medication I had, and told me I had the necessary and to go home and deal with it.
I had to go back the next day to see a day doctor....it was about midnight on New Years Eve when I went.
Have to be honest though, although the pain was unbearable, so was the hospital, the noise and the waiting....

But yes, they can and do leave people....In UK anyway.

Wendy, You have suffered for so long with your pain (in your life, not just this episode). Perhaps your doctor being on vacation is a blessing in disguise? If you go to the ER, maybe, just maybe they will have a recommendation for a new doctor?

If you can handle the rigor of being taken to the hospital and the wait and all the other garbage involved, please go.

I am in pain in spirit with you, if that helps.

GO to ER Wendy, DEMAND to be given something to END the migraine pain,
have your hubby by your side as your advocate.

You deserve the relief, and Wendy once you are back home PLEASE drop the doctor you have as she doesn't seem to know her butt from her head and seek another doctor, please.
You simply NEED better pain management, period.

Nothing else matters at the moment but YOU, dear

LOVE

an update

Post  Greeneyes on Mon May 17, 2010 2:48 am

Thank you for your love and support guys.

If I went to the ER they wouldn't do anything..If you have Kaiser insurance and you have a chronic pain problem..even intractable migraines they won't do anything..they send me to my PCP and normally I get an injection at her office.

As it is now..my hubby is giving me 3 Toradol injections at home..isn't working well at all though.

I have an appointment for a Dr. that is covering for mine..Honestly, I'm not feeling very hopeful because typically they don't want to prescribe something because you are not their patient. Praying, that something gets done.

I'm taking 30 mg of Nortriptyline..2 Trazdone..1 Benadryl..and still not sleep..Egads.

Love to you all..praying, that you are having a good day.

I am so sorry that you are still in so much pain, Wendy.
I wish I could offer you some useful suggestion but I am not familiar with the way your inusrance syste, operates.
I just wonder what happens if you are in extreme pain in the middle of the night and you have no access to your PCP - do they still refuse you any treament in ER?

I am sure you have tried all sorts of solutions in the past, but have you ever been offered the occipal nerve injection with steroid and lidocaine? And if so, did it help in any way?

I have it done twice - second time about two weeks ago - and provided that they "hit" the right spot it can bring much relief. I know it does not always work in the same way, so even if it did not work the last time, it might be worth trying again.

You are at such high levels of pain that you need to go for some new action, soon. I am sure you and your husband are doing your best - I know you are having very difficult time - it is hard to fight back at times, but keep trying.
