Yesterday as my husband and I were leaving the store when the left top side of my head and left eye gradually started to hurt. I thought it was a migraine so we went straight home. My head does not hurt if I'm lying down. When I try to raise my head, sit up or stand the headache pain gradually comes back until it is throbbing again and gradually goes away when I lie back down. I have taken a total of 3 10mg doses of hydrocodone and 2 doses of buthanol with no relief. I had a spinal tap last year that resulted in having to have a blood patch with similar symptoms but pain was extremely worse. I am in stage 4 kidney failure and having a transplant in January. Please help.
Don't know how expensive it is but the best stuff for me (I have had them for 25 years since born) has been sumigran (sumatriptan). A side effect that happens to some people is that it often comes back 24 hours later. Do some research and see if it right for you
