Today for the first time since my surgery I went out with my DH to the mall. It was a quick trip, spent about 30 min in a store and I can already feel my headache getting worse. I have had a headache since yesterday which was manageable until I stepped out of the house. I don't know if it is the extreme heat outside or just walking around that aggravated my condition but it literally drove me crazy. I could not wait to get back home and lay on my back. A few month ago I saw a neurologist for this migraine like headaches. He prescribed an antidepressant that is also used for migraine headaches associated with pain. I did not take it since I was going to have surgery and also did not want to deal with the side effects. Now I am having second thoughts. This headaches are killers, they affect my vision and everything else and make me miserable. I want to be patient and wait to see if the surgery had allivated the pain and in turn will help the headache but I don't know how long I can wait. I am so frustrated beyond words can express.
