Pain Free!!!

For the first time in four days I have no pain. I went to the doctor yesterday since the 1000 mg of ibuprofen every six hours wasn't helping. He couldn't determine the cause for the headache but he did give me a prescription which, at first, didn't help either but after another dose the pain subsided and this morning I woke up pain free. My sister said that the med may have not worked right away because I allowed the pain to get out of control and once that happens it's hard to reel it in. So, if this ever happens again and I have a headache for more than 24 hours it's off to the doctor I go. I never, ever want to go through that again.

I think your sister may be right...I've let the pain get away from me after surgery, and it's hard to get it under control!

I'm glad you're feeling better! Visiting from SITS!

Migraine perhaps. I used to get those when I was stressed and overly tired! They gave me vicodin! LOL

Take care of yourself Chele!

I'm glad you're feeling better. I know a lot of times I should have handled pain, but I was just waiting for it to subside. Sigh. Take care.

WOW! I wouldn't be able to handle a headache for more than an hour.
