I hate taking pills. I have a ton of medicine allergies and sensitivities. However, I also get migraines. Last week I decided that I couldn't handle the migraine anymore and I took an Imitrex. What a terrible idea! Rather than only restricting the vessels in my brain, the wonder drug restricted my arteries causing them to spasm. I didn't even know arteries could spasm!!
I spent a very long and uncomfortable night hooked to monitors in the emergency room. That was three nights ago. My heart rate still hasn't returned to normal.
