Missing Work, Sleeping a lot and Steroids

I've had five straight days of migraine since my appointment and have taken the max amount of Imitrex I'm allowed and Aleve isn't working. I had to call off work today because walking makes me feel like I am going to VOMIT and my head feels like it is in a vice. (I DETEST calling off of work. I feel guilty, even when I am feeling awful and know going in that I won't make it. 12 hours of beeping and crying, just thinking about it when I hurt this bad makes me feel like vomiting.) I slept most of the morning til the pharmacy opened up, which also makes me feel yucky. 

SO, because it's been more than three days using Imitrex with no relief, I called the neurologist's office and they called me in a Medrol pack. Steroids. Which will break the cycle of migraines and give me a clean slate supposedly. Sigh. HATE steroids, as its just more meds and crap in my system, but I must admit, it's already working. The nausea has gone away and the vice is lessening.  

Going to attempt work Wednesday and pray I'm ok. Not working again after that til Saturday and Sunday.

Kristen...I'm sorry you are going thru all of this. But you already know, God is good. Continue trusting Him. I hope you find relief soon.
