mkoven Posted September 5, 2007 Report Share Posted September 5, 2007 Hi,I've been having more frequent and painful headaches of late. I've also been diagnosed as sometimes having hemiplegic migraines.Because of my drug sensitivities, I've resisted trying new things, but today I couldn't stand it anymore. I had a prescription of midrin that I'd never taken, and was desperate, so I took it. Well, within 40 minutes, my heart was beating out of my chest, super tight, etc. I called the doc's office. They wanted me to go to the ER. 4 hours later, I'm at home. My cardiac workup was fine. But obviously no more midrin. And the er doc through triptans would be even worse.I have scheduled a visit with a neurologist in a couple weeks. Not sure what he;ll suggest if tripans and midrin are off the table.I've had bad reactions to tricyclics and neurontin, and can't take beta-blockers because of allergies/asthma. Oy.I hate going to the ER.And I still have the &*%$#! headache. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
