So it’s clear my attempt to go without painkillers backfired a little. I woke this morning in pain. I say woke, I was aware of the pain at points through the night. I took some aspirin on waking then picked up a new frovatriptan prescription.
As it has been 2 full weeks of pain I asked the pharmacist if there was anything else I could do to kill this migraine loop. The pharmacist simply spoke about prophylactic treatments. Not really what I was after. I know they say that people use GPs and A&E too much, but really what else am I to do?
I took a frova just before midday then some more aspirin. By mid afternoon I had stopped wincing in pain, although it’s still there. Just not as fierce.
I’ve spent my whole weekend in pain, just as I did last weekend. Not looking forward to work.
