know when to hold em....


modern day super hero

i am beat. the anti-convulsion medication i have been taking this week for my migraine sux some serious ass. side effects? uh yeah. i bought the generic version of what i normally take and i don't remember any of these side effect... locking jaw? why the fuck does that happen? stiff neck and sore back? yeah lets add on to my already existing issues with pain in that area. left arm is dead?!?!? how did they know it would be my left arm and why does this have to happen. it's a good thing i don't go to school and raise any fucking hands cause nope, that's not gonna happen. increased heart rate, yup, raise in blood pressure, yup, less sensitivity to light and sounds? yup, I'm fucking deaf and it feels like I'm looking through a dirty window.
i don't buy generic anything in my life. shop at Ross? nope. target, hell no. i don't wear crappy shoes, drive crappy cars, eat crappy food, so why on earth was i prescribed and did i buy the generic version of my pain meds?!? i guess cause I'm an idiot. yep... go ahead call me one, i will agree.

They are always pushing the generic drugs, when they don't work as well. Bottom line, they just don't. Have you tried Frova? If not, you may have to try to nerve block. Doesn't sound appealing, but I heard it works wonders. for all I know you have already done that. I'm just someone who deals with migraines ALL the freaking time. I'm sick of it, but your right, the generics suck.
Hope your head it better. Headaches just ruin your life, some people don't get that.
