I was hospitalized a month or so ago do to "stroke like symptoms". I had all signs of a stroke, just no signs of a stroke in all the test they ran. They diagnosed me with Hemiplegic Migraine Headaches. My question is, has anyone here been diagnosed with this, and if so how do you help with the headaches when they are intense and you've had it for a week now?
This was the only relief I have found. I was told the try having my Daiths pierced. The last migraine I had, I was released from the hospital after a weeks worth of every test they could think of & with no help or relief. I was begging for them to just cut my head off. Worst one ever, they had to strap me down & keep me knocked out.
So I went & had my Daiths pierced. As soon as the guy pierced the right ear the pain started to fade on the right side of my head. It was incredible. I started rushing him to do the left side. Lol......he was trying his best to hurry & get just the right pressure point. Soon as he got the left one done, pain faded away. I can say I have never been so elated in my life, ever. I have not had a migraine since. Knock on wood......lol. Sure a sinus infection headache, or eyes tried headache. But NEVER a migraine. I thank God & Structure @ Cherry Street Ink in Macon, GA for the wonderful relief.
Hope this helps someone.
I was diagnosed with chronic migraines, never heard that other name before. I was prescribed Rizatriptan and they have helped me so much with my migraines. Lavender oil is good also i rub it across my forhead and near my nose. I found it to relax me. Hope this helps.
I have migraines all the time and I don't think they have ever given it a name besides migraine. But I can't stand light, and sometimes I'm so "Off" you would think I was drunk, and I can have memory prob and something like fibro fog but 10 times as bad
I get Botox shots every three months for my migraines. It has been the only thing that helps. I react to most medications so Botox has been a life saver! When I do get a headache, I often have to take phenergan along with some type of pain med, non-narcotic. The best thing I have found over the 14 years I've had migraines, is finding my triggers and not doing what is causing them. I'm not familiar with your specific type of diagnosis so I'm not sure if it would work the same but it's worth a try! Having the symptoms of a stroke are crazy scary! I hope you find relief and a great treatment regimen.
