Lizze, migraine and neurologist update…

Lizze and I sat at the neurologist for the better part of 3 hours. When we were finally seen the appointment went quickly. A few medication changes were about all that really happened. As I discussed previously, Lizze is about out of options when it comes to her migraines. Basically the only one our insurance will cover is something call “headache/migraine infusion” .

Essentially what happens is she will be hooked up to an IV for 6-8 hours at the doctors office. They will push drugs in order to break the migraine. This process is repeated for 3 days. The goal is to bring the pain and severity of the migraine down at least a few points. We were also told that sleep issues and stress can make these migraines untreatable. Unfortunately, Lizze has both issues in categories. The stress we are under everyday is impossible to accurately convey to the doctors at the office. No one seems to get. So now we will go forward with the 3 day procedure as soon as it can be schedules and hope for the best. This is just putting that much more strain of an already over burdened family. Hopefully this will work for Lizze as it doesn’t always work for everyone. We should hear from the neurologist as soon as it’s get scheduled.

I meant to ask before…do you all drink diet drinks at all? A friend of mine had horrible migraines like you describe. She drank only diet soda and only used artificial sweeteners. When she switched back to sugar, agave, stevia- the headaches stopped, so did her fibromyalgia symptoms. Took about a week of 'detoxing' from the diet drinks and sweeteners.
