Migraine that won’t go away

Hi. I am new here and have several chronic health issues but right now I have a migraine that will not go away. I just lie in my bed with an ice pack on my head and one on my neck waiting…waiting for it stop… waiting for nighttime so maybe I can sleep. It will get better at times and I can get up and do a few things, but it returns. I can only take a small amount of my migraine medicine, a triptan because about a month ago it triggered serotonin syndrome in me. I am on several medicines that affect serotonin so I have to be very careful if I add something like my triptan or even Zofran for the nausea. It grindingly hard to have this and be sidelined from life. #ChronicMigraineSyndrome #ChronicPain #EhlersDanlosSyndrome

Struggling with migraine right now #ChronicMigraineSyndrome

I experience pain all of the time, from EDS and fibromyalgia, but this crushing pain in my face and head is too much. I have so much experience dealing with pain, for years now, but migraines panic me. Second day of this one now.
I will see my new neurologist June 10. It’s all a waiting game.
Anyone have any tips for helping this migraine end?

Feeling defeated

I had it in my mind to do all kinds of cleaning today. I am so far behind. My house really needs attention. But I woke up with a raging migraine. So until that under control there won't be any cleaning for me. It seems like whenever my mind is set and ready to do the work something gets in my way. I feel frustrated overwhelmed and defeated.#BipolarDisorder #Anxiety #Fibromyalgia #ChronicMigraineSyndrome
