I am officially on a drug holiday. Sunday, I hit my breaking point with the migraines. I had one regular migraine in the morning... treated it with Advil and then.... by late afternoon I had an ice pick migraine. Enough to make a person go crazy. I had bloated beyond feeling human. My joints were no long working... almost frozen.
Fast forward almost a week and no MAC drugs... I am a new person. My headaches are so much better. I had a dull headache on Friday and I had a large glass of water and it was gone in a short while.. no pain pills or dark room. The swelling in my joints and limbs is almost gone. Hubby says I look like my old self again.
It just dawned on me.... my scalp doesn't itch as bad as it has for the past 6 months. Those icky medications!!!
My joints are so much better. I can get in and out of my chair without help. I can climb stairs without having to grip the railing. To that I say "SWEET!!"
We will see what the docs decide in another week....
