Leukorrhea...... urgh. Fun is.
Also - great to hear THERE IS a safe migraine med. Blessedly, I have been spared my usual nightmare of headaches and migraines that I suffered with during my first three pg's.
About a week ago, I got a really, really bad one. I tried Tylenol (like throwing a toothpick at a train), ice packs, rest/sleeping. Finally, after about 16 hours in bed- writhing in pain, throwing up, NOT eating or drinking, etc, with my three kids having a full schedule of games to get to - around 5am I took 2 Excedrin. My only concern was the aspirin in the mix (acetaminophen, caffeine, aspirin). Worked like a charm! It usually does not work that perfectly well - but I think the last two+ months of ZERO daily caffeine made all the difference.
I DON'T want to have to do that again - and I have asked my mw about safe meds (if anything has changed in the last 10 years since I was last pg/nursing), and she said NO. So I will now ask specifically about the Sumatriptan, mentioned above. (THANK YOU!!!!)
FYI - in the wayyyyy past, a pediatrician came up with a cocktail I could use while nursing, because I was really suffering with migraines horribly - with three children under age 3&1/2 and alone all day with them. It was Benadryl, NoDoz, Tylenol. Saved my butt many'a'day!!
