My birthday is Jan. 30th and my head pains birthday is Feb. 1st! Prayers, I hope an infusion is the answer for you!
First- bring music! My infusion treatments were three days of 8 hour sessions. While the drugs generally knocked me out, the music helped me relax.
Secondly, if your treatments include the drugs that knock you out.. you'll prolly be drooling for a few days (I barely remember the week of the treatment sessions).
They did help me out, but not enough for the doctor to continue with them (two weeks of 2/3 level pain instead of 6 weeks like they said it would last).
Honestly, I know he told me DHE and 2 other meds. I think a steroid. The conversation was a blur...my BP was 178/122 from pain & my docs won't refill my pain meds until I get a 2nd opinion at Cleveland clinic. They are doing infusions to "tide me over" Until the new doc assesses me. I don't understand their logic....hopefully I don't have a BP related stroke in the mean time if I have another bad migraine.
Omg hun, that's awful. Poor you!! Sounds like you've got some thinking to do. Good luck and keep us updated xx
