I am very unnerved right now. the last few months my kids have said I have told them they could do things that seemed out of character or strange, or I have done things that didn't seem normal for me. Usually this happens when I have a migraine. A few days ago I was on day 5 of a migraine. I took imitrex, which I hadn't for a few days because you cannot take it every day or it just makes everything worse. I only take it when things are at their worst. I couldn't sleep, so I guess I was awake enough to be aware of what was going on. I had the strongest urge to go find the dog. The dog was lost and I HAD to go find it RIGHT NOW. We don't have a dog. We have not had a dog in years. We actually have never had a dog for more than a few months in my married life. I am not really a dog person and my husband gets them and then won't care for them so I find them better homes than ours. This compulsion to go and find the dog was the oddest thing I have EVER felt. I knew that I didn't have a dog, but I still felt I had to go find it, that my dog was lost. It was not the dog I grew up with, or the dog my mother has. I have zero idea WHY I had this happen. My husband and kids tell me that I have tried to go looking for 'the dog' several other times when I had migraines and had taken imitrex, but they didn't know how or exactly what to tell me. They are rather afraid to leave me alone when I have taken imitrex for fear of what I will do other than this. I have the imitrex put up where someone else has to give it to me, so that they know when I am taking it. I have called my doctor, who has not returned my call yet. This is the sort of thing they need to talk to you during an appointment to sort out I think. Imitrex is the ONLY medication that has EVER helped during a migraine other than really heavy duty sedatives to just knock me out until it is over. But my migraines can last for days or weeks so that isn't a healthy option, not with my other issues. I have taken imitrex since it was released, and tried the similar medications but they don't work for me. I have no clue what to do. I do have an appointment with my neuro in a couple of weeks. I just don't even know what to do or think until then. Any ideas? I have not hallucinated before and don't want to again, it is the strangest, ickiest thing to feel so out of control. But the migraines honestly can be so bad that I just want to cut my head off or hurt myself to make the pain stop. They can be so bad that I get scared of what I could do to myself. That is why I save the imitrex for when they are really bad, because you can't take it every day, just 3 days a week and 9 days a month maximum. Now, not even that. Thanks for listening at least.
