hey honey... it took me a few docs to get one to
take me serious. Sounds like your doctor isn't believing you.
At worse case, GO TO THE HOSPITAL...and get a demeral shot. I'm
sure your insurance will pay for it. Call them today to get it in line
for tonight. Don't go another day. Till then, here are some tricks of
the trade. Lots of water... helps take some of the pain down. So much water
you pee every 30 minutes. Exedrin Migrane...although, in reality, it probably
wouldn't do much for you. But take some before you go to bed EVEN
iF you don't have one going on. Feverfew... an herbal drug. Fresh air... go outside
tonight and BREATH... it may help some of the pain. Blow dryer on medium heat... massage
the area. Your husband... i hear you... Three years ago... i was having an attack like yours.
My husband was totally unsympathetic and was totally pissed at me for keeping him up with my
crying.... and when i begged him to take me to the hospital... he refused. So.. i called the hospital
and they said i needed to come in... so, he finally agreeed.... he was screaming at me
all the way there! WIth a full blown cycle. And a three year old in the car crying. He dropped
me off at the entrance and he went back home. Since then, i realize how i'm stuck in this fricken marriage
cause i don't have insurance to take care of me...and i can't work with these. So, your not alone.
My love goes out to you. Write me at home ... firstname.lastname@example.org...
sonya, your friend for life.
