The 58 Day Migraine Versus EMO
Mary Eaden Parker writes: At the beginning of July I awoke in the night with a terrific headache. I took the customary painkillers to no avail. I went to work as usual and within an hour I walked out, unable to deal with this pain. This action is so unlike me. Later that day the pain was so bad my husband took me to the A&E department of our hospital. From then the medical treatment stepped into action. I attended A&E twice more. I visited my doctor and within ten days was sitting in front of the Consultant Neurologist.
When I was discharged the hospital suggested that alternative therapies might be helpful.
During this time the pain was unrelenting. I found myself withdrawn, angry and tearful, and the pain continued. We paid for a scan to find some reason, some cause for this pain. The scan revealed nothing. The pain was there 24/7 and was beginning to change my personality and it was taking away my life. I am usually optimistic, cheerful, and dare I say humorous. All that was gone.
Who was I?
What had happened to my life? My friends and family searched for anything and everything to ease this pain. My husband was wonderfully supportive but he had lost his wife. He was at a loss as to what to do. The pain would not go away.
What was it? I don’t know. Then I sat up, I nodded, I shook my head. It didn’t hurt! WOW, it didn’t hurt! This was me – hearing the telephone hurt, my hair hurt, so much that I couldn’t touch it or wash it and had it cut off. It didn’t hurt! The tears came again, but this time for the most uplifting reason.
The doctors said “A migraine trapped in my head”, I say a miracle.
