Long story short - can't take tryptan-based drugs at the moment because of other issues. Can no longer take propanolol as a preventer (ok, so it hasn't been wonderful BUT IT WAS FREAKIN' SOMETHIN!!!!!). No longer allowed to take codeine - apparently I've had toomuch and this is what is causing the constant pain.
So, I hear the observant amongst you ask, what the f*** am I supposed to do when I have a freakin' MIGRAINE?????
Answer - take 2 paracetamols. And then go to bed.
I'm off to lie in a darkened room . I may be
some time several years.
