I see I'm not the only one that is being told by their neuro doc it nothing to worry about,but that not good enough for me...Before I had this little episode I'll call it happen to me I would have maybe 3 -4 migraines a year but on July 23,2004 it started with a burning sensation in the chest than a weakness in the arm and leg and than face on the left side,slurred sppech intense headache don't remember much more after than.Spent 4 days in hospital after being flight flighted was told I had a mini stroke...Was home a day and a half woke up with an intense headache on the left side and felt like my left side of the face was swollen went to fire station to have BP checked but no one was there on way back home was over come by numbness so son called rescue BP was 65/30 was admitted for 6 more days was diganosed with complex/ complicated migraines.Been on topamax since 8-2-04 started at 25 mg up to 75 mg..I have headaches every day,sometimes bad enough to where I can't hold my head up,open my eyes cause they hurt so bad,I'm nausated most of the time and when it get really bad I end up in the ER and than they start giving you crap cause they don't think you are really in pain that often..I wish for 1 week they could trade places with me..Luckily I have a job that allow me to work 4-5 hours a night instead of my 8 hours,really they rather me stay at home and rest but they understand I need the money and my coworker overnight have took up a collection and have paid a few bills for me..I do have a good support group,just wish a good neuro doc,etc//It's so hard to just get through the day being in so much pain and not having the strength or energy to keep going but I don't have to explain to you all caause you know where I'm coming from..Hopefully soon someone will take this serious and get us the help and consideration we well deserve and need...Take care and try to have a nice weekend..
