hi there, i havent been on in awhile-i am doing good=counseling going painful but necessary. i start have migraines july 12. i have a headache everyday. i tried quitting caffine but that made it worse. now back to what i normally drink. i have not changed my diet-it has been hot n humid. i tried tylonel, advil, excederin, and none worked. this monday i saw my eye doctor since th thats where pain is-ove right eye n back of head. he saw nothing. i called my doc up yesterday n he told me next time call the same day-i guess migraines only work if you hit in bud when first happens... he is sending me to sleep study cause i cant sleep. anyone have this?

i also had blood pressure yesterday at doc of 130/87. he wasnt too concerned but my normal is 120/60. i bought a meter and take it when the pain is intense. the readings now are 117/67. i cant excersise because my head hurts. i have been working on house project. i got this headache today at 10am n went right home n took the stuff they gave me. i passed out at 11 n woke at 2. i didnt sleep deep-kept coming awake...felt like i was gasping for breathe. it took me 20 min to get up. it is like this every morning. i cant wait until they send me for sleep study. i am sick of being tired..thats one reason why i abused pills before for the past 2 yrs. i never felt rested and needed more than caffine to pick me up...so hopefully soon i get good sleep.
Hi toobadgirl, We missed you! After my WD, I experienced HBP, and headaches (still get those - sinus mostly, maybe sinus related for you?) and major insomnia. It will improve. Please google Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome, you will learn a lot about what is happening to your body/brain.
I still have some PAWS stuff going on, but I took Oxy for 10 years.
Hope your sleep study goes well. Please tell us about it when you are diagnosed!! Fascinating stuff, that.
