I recently went to the ER with a hemiplegic migraine. I have inherited these from my Grandmother and was diagnosed 3 years ago after suffering horrible headaches since my youth.I use tramadol and fioricet to control them and usually end up once a year in ER for shot of Nubane(SP) I told the ER Dr I could not have Imitrex as I had allergic reactions in the past. She gave me the shot anyway. I was on the couch for 2 weeks after the shot unable to walk talk or eat. I returned to work as I had no more vacation or sick time left. I worked a full week and then was put on medical leave by my supervisor. There were times I could not comprehend (I am a medical secretary in Physical therapy dept at the same hospital where shot was given) where I was or what I was there for. I also wet my pants, have horrible stomach pains and am still very uncoordinated. My main question is does the allergic reaction cause permanent damage? Because I am on public aid insurance I have 2 more weeks before I can see a neurologist. Any suggestions??? I am currently taking Zoloft, Xanax as needed and am on hormone replacements (peri menopause.) I am very intellegent but now feel like my brain does not always do what it should. Thank you for your help!

Has anyone ever suggested to you 5-HTP supplements? It naturally increases the seretonin in your brain to help with headaches. It's helped me with mine.

I have gone to the ER at least 4 times in the past year for my migraines. The last time I went for it, the nurse gave me imitrex. I started having a burning feeling in the back of my neck and then started shaking uncontrollably. Then my neck and head got really stiff. I asked her about it and she told me it was normal and left me. I was fine the day after but I saw my doctor and she said I might want to try it again. So I did and the same things happened but I also ended up having a burning feeling in my throat. I could breathe, but I am curious as to whether this was an allergic reaction. If it is, then is it just imitrex that I can't take or is there a specific thing in imitrex that caused my symtoms?

I would like to suggest that ..before you start using any medication, be sure to inform your doctor or take advice from doctor of any medical conditions or allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health.
