I am in a migraine treatment program this week in Tampa, Fl. The doctors went though all my medications and as they were doing so they came across the Tramadol which is what I use a one of my emergency rescue meidcations. Now I have severe migraines freqently. Meaning more than 3-4 a month and when I get them they can last anywhere between 2-30 days. I also am aware of the rebound headache theories with taking too many pain meds, triptans, etc. during a month, week, etc. So I am extremely careful with how many I take and always consult with my doctor when I have a status migraine lasting this long. I can't take NSAIDS or IBUPROFEN or anything in that category because I have ulcers and I won't take narcotics because I don't like them and they don't get rid of the headache anyway. To top it off I'm allergic to the majority of the meds that would normally get rid of migraines - steroids, imitrex, dhe, composine and reglan. Now I'm being told that my saving grace other than the toradol (which I know I can only use sparingly) isn't good for migraines? If this is true then what else is there?!? HELP! I do biofeedback and relaxation, massage, etc but sometimes when your at work you have to fall back on the pharmacalogical means much as I hate to admit it. I can't stand medicine, But what do I do?!?
