  • Just explain to the doctor everything that has taken place so far, and be very clear about how much pain you are in. Do you have any idea what is triggering this? I have struggled with severe migraines for years, and I recently stopped having them altogether after learning some posture adjustments from an anusara yoga teacher. I've been really amazed by the results. I'd be happy to share with you if you think it might help.

  • Um... hydrocodone is stronger than percocet. They are probably not refilling it due to the fact that there are alot of people that are drug seekers, and it is normal procedures to not refill the script. I advise you to talk to your new doctOr about what you are feeling. Did you know that caffenine is proven to help with migraines?

  • i know this may seem a little stupid...but have you had your eyes checked? Whenever it was sunny I had to wear sunglasses bc I couldn't see, and if I didn't I would have sucha migraine I couldn't move.
    Hope you feel better soon.

  • I would also just tell your Dr about whats going on. Idk if he will continue the pain pills, but the thing that helped me most was just laying down in the dark, no noise, and just stay there.
