When I get slammed with one migraine after another for several days, the only thing that breaks the cycle is to take steroids for three days. That doesn't sound like a big deal, but the side effects make me NUTS!!! I'm already going through menopause due to having a partial hysterectomy almost 3 years ago, and the steroids amplify my hot flashes and mood swings. The last time I was on them, I flipped out on one of my friends at church, and my husband and kids were ready to have me committed.
The last few days I've been getting hit with one migraine after another and as much as I don't want to, I"m going to have to call my doctor in the morning and get him to call in the Decadron for me. I told my husband that I need to get a hotel room for the next three days while I'm on them, or he and the kids need to move out, for their own safety!
