Monday 15th August – A Trip To A&E

So this morning I woke up with a severe migraine and head pain for the forth day.  Migraines for me usually last 2 to 3 days tops so my wife phoned the hospital and after a conversation with one of the healthcare professionals the decision was made for me to be taken to a and e.

The doc decided for me to have a CT scan which did not show anything so he loaded me up with a drug cocktail comprising of paracetamol, a double dose of ibuprofen, a couple of amitriptyline,diazepam, prochlorperazine and a pantoprazole to stop me from getting a an ulcer.  The pain eased but didn’t go but i was sent on my way with some extra meds and told to rest and then go back to my GP for more meds in a week or so.  With any luck these meds will take the edge off.
