I was prescribed ketorolac in the er for severe migraine... But it's not helping. Should I go back to the er?
If you have frequent migraines see a neurologist and get something to prevent them. If you can't afford the drug the drug companies have programs to supply drugs at a price you can afford. It helps offset their evil image.
If you go back to the ER try and get them to refer you to a neurologist if one isn't on call. If you don't go back call the ER on the phone an try and get them to set up an appointment for a neurologist for you.
Going to the ER for chronic migraines puts you in place you have to hurt an awfully long time before getting any relief. That may be OK for once or twice a year but if you have migraines several times a week you need to prevent them not treat them. You don't want to be going over a MRI and have a neurologist say that spot looks like a migraine induced stroke. I can tell you from experience the next migraine is really scary. I turned out to be MS which is worse. But not a scary when I have a headache.
