The past couple of months I have had constant migraines that aren’t affected by pain killers like asprin or ibuprofen, the only thing I can do is lie down and suffer through them until I fall asleep.
Is anyone else dealing with impossible migraines in conjunction with Schizoaffective disorder?
I totally was the pressure was behind my eyes mostly kinda felt like blood pressure however it was normal. She tried lowering my meds and it went away. So it was the meds. But everyday for a month I had to lie down it was bad.
I have Sza bipolar type and I get migraines almost every day and have been for many years. Migraines are very common in bipolar women. I’m not sure about men though @Mourning_Dove.
Have you told a doctor this? Are you sure it’s “just” migraines?
My doctor is aware, but hasn’t advocated any med adjustments or solutions yet.
I have suffered with migraines a lot throughout my life. I used to get taken to the ER and get morphine shots and come back home and sleep. Then suffer the halo effect for a couple of days after. They were really debilitating. When I got pregnant with my daughter when I was thirty I suffered with one long migraine. I went to the ER and they sent me to the baby doc. He said it wasn’t safe to take anything but tylenol but he had a trick. Take it with Coke.
So my brother went and got me tylenol and coke and I’ll be darned if it didn’t work. Since then when I start to get the warning signs of a migraine I take 1000 mg of tylenol with caffeine, a coke works best, but coffee or pepsi will work. Or you can buy Excederine for migraines, it’s basically tylenol with caffeine in it. The trick for me is to catch it before the migraine sets in. I carry excederine in a pill bottle on my keychain so no matter where I am I can prevent a migraine. I hate them, I would do anything to not get one. Since I learned this trick 25 years ago I have maybe had 5. Before this trick I would have 2 a month.
