went to the docs today, so he could resind the open script for imitrex to the recommended dosage of 2 shots a day. The pharmicist reported the doctor. I know what the BOOK says the safe dosage should be, but the studies have all been for migrain sufferers who, in the worst case can get 8 attacks a MONTH. We are talking about my boyfriend who has gotten up to 10 attacks in ONE DAY! Someone needs to straighten this out.

When he gets his attacks I can do nothing, sometimes I try to rub his neck to slow down the blood flow and loosen the muscles. Sometimes it helps other times you can't get near him. Our life's come to a complete halt.

I can't stand to just watch him scream in pain. I'm screaming inside too.

Today, he pulled a musle in his elbow from straining to squeeze his head so hard.

does anyone else feel as helpless as I do?
