Hey migraine warriors,
I think I may have dropped myself into a state of rebound headache. I adjusted the dose of Paxil somewhat 5 weeks back (lowered it), felt pretty darn good initially and then one day had the mother of all headaches after putting a sunblock on my face full of nasty chemicals. so I took this aspirin product here in Oz called Aspro Clear which I’ve used many times in the past. Basically you dissolve about 600-1000 mg of the stuff in water, knock it back and it wipes out pain quickly.
BUT, I now notice that I appear to be on a constant roller coaster ride of pain then no pain then pain again as the aspirin wears off. This current trend is not the norm for me and I cannot pick any other triggers. Everything else is under control.
When I went cold turkey as per Nick Silver’s advice last year I still got headaches despite 3 months on the painkiller wagon but it wasn’t going on anything like this.
I think I’m going to go cold turkey for a while and just put up with the pain and then see if it drops off. :shock:
To think a GP told me the other day to start taking 1000 mg before bed daily with 2.5 mg of valium. The valium is fine here and there but this aspirin thing has me wondering if I’ve turned into a painkiller junkie.
Any of you guys think you’ve had rebound before?
