Meet Mrs M. // Meds talk


Migraine anyone? Is there anything worse than waking up in the morning with a hammering headache? And no booze the night before, just in case you are already judging ;o)

All the females in my family suffer from Migraine. I didn't until about 2 years ago, when I stopped the Depo Provera and now using the Nuva-Ring for birth control. Now I get a visit from "Mrs. M" (= family nickname for Migraine) at least twice a month. And I really don't like it.

What makes it worse for me is, that I am not allowed to take any Migraine meds, aka. Triptans , since I have to take 3 different anti-depressants every day. They don't get along well... Advil, Aspirine, Ibuprofen - won't work. Been there, done that.
So right now I'm sitting at the office with a Migraine. No other choice! My doc said, since I can't take Triptans, all I can do is praying for the Migraine to kick in on weekends, so I can lock myself up in a dark room, trying to find a pain-free position. But I guess my body has a different opinion about that. Looking at the screen hurts, my stomache is upset as well and I'm feeling dizzy. Oh what a day.

Maybe I should have stayed home, but working at a startup company, I know I am needed every day. So I am just trying to make it through this day.

Is there anyone elese out there with the same anti-depressant/Triptane issue? What do you guys do when a Migraine is trying to ruin your day?

  1. I am not on any other meds, but find that whatever I take for migraine nothing but rest works. Feeling very sorry for you today!

    Hope you get better soon and enjoy your weekend.

  2. I'm not on any meds either, my migraines are normally from my bad posture and being slouched over at the computer all day/night. As soon as my bones in my neck are out of place, I get these horrible migraines. I find by stretching regularly and going to my chiropractor once a month they are pretty much eliminated. Feel better!!! :)
