About Me: Female, 55, Yucaipa, CA, member since Jun 2012
I began Tx of my crushing, "sick headaches." These are constant, chronic, vomiting Migraines, Muscle Tension and Cluster/Suicide headaches. Took 400 mgs. Morphine every 4 hours from 1998-2007. I quit cold - no problem. I went untreated for 5 years. New MRI shows L4/
[More]5 & S1 buldging discs explaining new horrific pain. Began PM again JAN/FEB 2012 with 30 mg Oxycodone IR 1 every 3 hrs. Pain at 8-9 so added 100 mgs. Morphine ER twice daily. Didn't help. Just added Fentanyl gel patch 100 mcg. Also received Botox (03/12) in forehead and sides of head. Vastly improved all of those headaches. Still working on tragic back pain.
Just a quick note to say hi!I hope today, and especially tomorow, (just looked at he clock!) finds you happy and feeling good! The weather has been beautiful, and I know winter is on it's way! I am going to listen to music and try to relax tomorrow, it is the one day of the week my grandson goes with his Grampa! I am STILL waiting for my meds to be filled, supposedly on the 21st! We will see! I don't have to make breakfast, luch, or dinner UNLESS I feel like it! Hurray!
