the neurologist today believes I have a special kind of migraine called Trigeminal neuralgia, or Fifth nerve which comes from a nerve in my face. He is giving me a new pain medication based off ibuprofen, which I can take once I'm off prednisone because it can really mess with your stomach. If that doesn't work, there is an antiseizure/blood pressure medicine to try, then Botox, then, inject the nerve with something to calm it down. Least invasive thing first thank you very much. But, if I come back to school looking 15 years old, you know I've tried the botox!
I was reading online and found out that very few people have this disorder. Aren't I lucky?
In the meantime, I can't take any other pain meds, other than Tylenol, which is like saying oh, just take a spoon full of sand when you have a headache. Which, right now, I do have a very nice one going along. Oh, well, at least I'm special. I think I will make myself a quilt :)
