OT- DD's Migraines
DD12 has had migraines since she was probably 8. They weren't frequent, maybe 1-2 a month. Then all of a sudden they have been almost daily since mid-August. She has been on all the standard rx's (Imitrex, Zomig, Maxalt) they don't even touch them. We were told to go to the ER last week because she had one that was still going strong after 24 hrs. She freaked and we waited a whole other day (started thurs and went in Sat).
Whatever the cocktail that they give you in the IV worked! Well she was good until Monday when another hit her hard. She called me from the nurse begging to go back to the ER. So we did. Then yesterday she got another one, we tried the last RX that she was given and then took the 2nd dose, nothing. I took her back to the ER today. I feel so bad for her!!! I am waiting on her neurologist to call me back but it is just crazy to me that the only relief that this child can get is through an IV!! Also, the neurologist doesn't keep the meds in office, no urgent care - only the ER.
Has anyone else dealt with migraines like this? I had them when I was younger but Imitrex always worked for me.
