Unhappy Every wonder what to do...?

When you take a huge daily medication cocktail, and then you get something as simple as a headache?

I've posted my conditions in my sig line, but to clarify the acronyms, I'm diagnosed with: Fibro, Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease, Hypothyroidism, Glucose Intolerance, Avitaminosis D (I stop the Vitamin D, my numbers bottom out again), and all kinds of problems in my spine (C-spine fusion, 2 T-spine herniations, a Schmorl's node, some foraminal stenosis, arthropathy, and arthrosis) and the latest seems to be Femoral Acetabular Impingement Syndrome.

I'm taking: Lyrica (450mg), Cymbalta (60mg), Celebrex (200mg), Plaquenil (400mg), Zantac (300mg), Folic Acid (1 mg), Synthroid (50mg), Metformin (1,000 - 1,500mg), and Singulair (10mg) daily. I also take Methotrexate (12.5mg) once a week and Vitamin D (50,000 IUI) twice a week.

For breathrough pain, I have Tylenol 3, Norco, and topical Pennsaid.

So, what on earth does one take when a moderately bad headache (but not a migraine) joins the mix?

By the way, I'm new!

Welcome, it's funny but my tramadol does not help my head at all. Dr did tell me sometimes pain meds give u a bad head because it's a reaction to taking the meds for to long.
So maybe try nurofen ie ibuprofen .

btw thats alot of lyrica!

be careful with those meds!

learn about the side effects.

if its on TV its not a good med that docs prescribe unless they get a kick back from the manufacturer.

do your research on those meds. notice many say blurry vision and much worse!
