I had a question. And I believe this is something I should probably bring to my doctors attention.
But rather than spending the time off work, to see what is happening. Although I am considering it.
The past week I've been suffering from a headache. Unsure if it is a migraine or just a plain headache. I do not know what turns a headache into a migraine.
But the symptons I am currently sufferring is with light. I Can not stare at my screen for too long. The headache it like starts mild but then it starts to hurt real bad
up until it reduces again. It does not go away but the mild pain remains.

I am afraid, if I go to the doctor they will have to run tests to see what may be causing it. That is something I will have to take care of with more time.

I normally take tramadol, I've been refilling from Todd now the 200mg Tamol XX brand due to coccyx. I figured the tramadol would alleviate but it does not.
Would the fioricet be something that would probably take care of this with no problem? The time of taking the tests, maybe having to see a specialist,
if they say you have to go through a ct scan or MRI to check my head. I think it may be easier and much quicker to test fioricet, at least 30 tabs.
But unsure if the symptons merit for fioricet
@Danie @Bawston I kind of seen that you've had experience using this pharmacy for these products. Seeing that you are familiar with Fioricet
does it help for the related symptoms I am currently going through. I wanted to check and ask prior to taking a plunge

@kmontayne I suffer from migraines myself. If you head to a doctor one of the things they will probably test with would be imitrex.
That is something I think a lot of insurance companies cover. They can either give you a shot, that should clear the problem maybe for about 2 days. Or they may give it to you in tabs. I would opt for the shot.

Yes I think fioricet would help with the headache.
Tramadol does not give me ANY relief for headaches.

In my experience, if you go to the Dr (depending if
PCP or neurologist) first thing a neurologist would do
Is order a MRI. General practice may do the same.

Fioricet has always worked for me. My headaches start later in the day & progress.
I’m dx with migraines, but what I actually have is headaches
From cervical problem- herniated disc.

Worth a shot for sure.

But I would also plan on having a MRI to make sure there isn’t
nothing else going on.

P.s. I am extremely sensitive to light & loud noises

A few things. They used to have both Fioricet and Fiorinal, the only difference was Tylenol or Aspirin, both had caffeine. Some had codeine, but it was not a lot. So you can duplicate Fiorect with Tylenol, or Extra Strength Tylenol, and caffeine. The caffeine works with the Tylenol and both potentates it, and constricts blood vessels, which can help migraines.

That said, hypersensitivity to light, could be a symptom of things you should have checked, by a doctor. I can name a few, but I don’t want to play amateur doc with your health. You can definitely get eye strain from things as simple as overusing a computer, or phone, etc. and this can cause hypersensitivity and migraines (I have gotten both from working too hard on the computer). So I don’t want to worry you, but you owe it to yourself to make time to have a doctor eliminate things. I certainly understand being too busy to go to the doctor. I have to go to one every month, but my regular doctor won’t refill my other meds without dragging me in, and all the other stuff, like blood work, tests, etc. every 6 to 7 months.

If you need some instant relief, I think one of the Tylenol headache formulas come with the caffeine in it, so you don’t have to wait for Fioricet. Take care of yourself, and if you use your computer, or phone, a lot, try to give yourself a little break. I hope you feel better!

@kmontayne...I think I would check in with the doctor. Usually they’ll diagnose based on the symptoms that you tell them and will often try you on a few meds before going to fioricet. They may want to do a CT scan or MRI to rule out a more serious, life threatening situation but those are usually a case of a sudden, incredibly severe head pain greater than any you’ve had before.

Migraines can be triggered by so many things that they will probably give you a list of foods to avoid and rule out. As Dani mentioned, and I’ve had some of the same experience, migraines can be triggered by cervical problems. You might want to look online for migraine triggers, diagnosis, prevention, and medications. There’s such a variety. I am helped by fioricet yet my sister also gets migraines and it didn’t help her at all so what works for one might not help another. I never found Tramadol to be helpful for migraines though.

One thing I have heard from my opthomologist is that if you use a screen a lot that it’s possible that blue lens glasses can help. That hasn’t been proven but many have found relief. They have reliable studies though that those glasses do help with sleep since screen time disrupts that.

@kmontayne...I’m glad that you’re having this checked out. It’s great to have others to talk to and get opinions and suggested options but we all have different situations. I can’t speak for everyone here but I think most of us have gone through the diagnostics as well as various therapies so we at least know what we’re working with and have made our own choices.

Please let us know how you make out.

My sugar levels where high.
Which caused the headaches. I do not suffer from migraines yay.
But I may be diabetic now. Following dads foot steps it looks like.
He is 72 now, and just started on insulin :(

Thank you guys for the advice. I think seeing the doc sort of saved my life. (Exagerration maybe)
My dad says high sugar levels is dangerous. His levels have been as high as 400, headed to the hospital.
His levels have been so unbalanced. metering at 130 in the morning then 180 in the afternoon 160 in the evening then 170 in the morning.
He keeps adjusting his diet.

I’m truly glad you went. You really needed to know that, and it is very easily controlled. You will probably just have oral medication, like Metformin aka Glucophage, to see if they can get you down with that. They only go to insulin, if oral meds don’t work. But, had you not found out, you were playing with fire. I hope your headache is getting better, and at least you will feel better really soon, if not already.

Well, that is a bit dangerous. How long have you been with this headache now? So the body was warning you this whole time, somethings wrong.
Good job, catching it on time.

@kmontayne...I’m not sure that you’re exaggerating when you say going to the doctor may have saved your life. Diabetes is something that is no joke and if you’d taken a med that masked the headache then you may have continued without proper treatment for the diabetes - and who knows how that would have progressed. I’m so glad that you got this checked out and wish you good health.

I am so glad you went. Diabetes has been a plague in my family. My sister has always had terrible migraines but as she grew older she also became diabetic. She ignored it for as long as she could, until she had to have open heart surgery and subsequently lost her leg and most of her vision. Now she is on dialysis 3 times week since her kidneys failed. She is younger than me but she will be gone soon.

There are wonderful new tools now for diabetics. Take care and take it seriously please.

Hi @kmontayne

Sorry that close computer screen work is causing headache (physiologically) for you.

Best to check with your Internist and also a Neurologist (specialist) who can order brain MRI imagine, examine you for any musculoskeletal symptoms (myofascial pain, painful fibrous muscle knots). Muscle spasm causing knots are "trigger points" which become spastic and hard in the trapezius muscle over scapula bone, along with where trapezius connects to base of skull near occiput.

Maybe you are having migraine classic one sided headache. Maybe you are also having cervicogenic headache which causes days of painful, throbbing upper cervical spine pain. I was injured in 1991, re-injured in 1993 and was diagnosed by multiple neurologists and two neurosurgeons with both migraine and cervicogenic headache.

The Triptans are best. I personally take injectable Imitrex (generic is Sumatriptan) using the less costly vials. NDC 55150-173-01 is the pharmaceutical code for its United States FDA box of five (5) vials of 6MG subcutaneous generic Sumatriptan.
I learned how to patiently fill the subcutaneous 50ml injections, sterilize my injection skin area with alcohol and administer the Rx to stop the migraine "fire and lightning throbbing". Not even Rx analgesics by oral route can stop the intensity of migraine vasoconstriction pain in blood vessels, extreme pain with eye movement, photophobia, "phonophobia" and many times nausea with vomiting. Migraine is a neurotransmitter "hell" for an afflicted patient.

The Imitrex subcutaneous injection begins working to subside the extreme throbbing and "fire and lightning pain" within ten minutes.

Fioricet is a good analgesic for migraines when I take it with injectible Imitrex. That combination works for me. I have two cervical fusions with my hip bone and a remaining herniated disk that has worsened since 2013 per my December 2019 MRI. Occipital neuritis is another diagnosis from a damaged left spinal nerve root near C3-C4. The pain is agonizing when my neck pain and headache is cervicogenic. Was so bad one August 1992, I was hospitalized for 4 days and 3 nights inpatient......the ER attending physician could not stop my vomiting. I was in a hospital bed for 2 days unable to hold any fluids or food. Had an IV to avert dehydration. Hospital inpatient attending physician ordered 75MG of Demerol with Phenergan every four hours. Tried Esgic on Day 2.... but the headache was too intense because it was cervicogenic.


My "work up" in summer 1992 involved cervical and brain CAT Scans, another MRI of cervical spine, nerve conduction study and the dreaded (painful) myelogram with contrast test. Both my neurologist and neurosurgeons expertise provided answers to "why" I was suffering these painful episodes. Finally, after fifteen years of suffering from migraine and cervicogenic pain I had accurate clinical diagnosis with treatment plan with Rx and trigger point intervention.

Just for clarification purposes, there is one other item in Fioricet, and if there wasn’t, Fioricet would be obsolete. The amount of the other ingredient is negligible. I was only suggesting using the Tylenol with caffeine, as a way to get started on relief, while waiting for Fioricet.

Interestingly, even with the additional ingredient, it is not a controlled item, with acetaminophen. Fiorinal, with Aspirin, instead of Tylenol, is controlled. There are a few other meds that shift schedule, if there is acetaminophen added. I would love to think there was a better reason for this, but I truly believe that they are easier on the scheduling, if there is the check on consuming too much acetaminophen, which is very toxic to your liver and kidneys, if taken too much daily. I guess they are trying to keep “drug seeking” patients away, but what about people that can not afford internet access, or in rural areas with no access, regardless of ability to afford it. How many people have no idea about the toxicity? As I have mentioned on other threads, my pain management doctor gives me a PK that comes with, or without Tylenol. If I want the one without, my insurance won’t pay for it! So I end up paying for it, out of pocket, to not take a toxic med every day. They keep changing the “safe” amount. It used to be 4,000 mgs daily, but it is now 3,000 mgs. Some websites recommend less. But to all, be careful. Many people get in trouble by taking a cold formula, and not realizing they are getting acetaminophen with it, and take extra strength Tylenol too, and blow over the max. The point being that you can be in serious jeopardy, just by using a few OTC meds for a bad cold, or flu. On another thread, a poster mentioned that all his doctor would give him for a serious fracture was 800 mg ibuprofen. He ended up with kidney damage.

Tylenol is poison, and should not be taken by anybody who can safely use anther NSAID. I think I should make this my tagline. Although I suspect I'm preaching to the choir, here on this Forum. :)
@calgal99 - Butalbital can be Rx'd and dispensed standalone (no aspirin or Tylenol in it, nor caffeine). But it is a controlled Rx in the US and good luck getting a physician to write it in 2020!

I was wondering if someone could assist me. It is in regards to the vendor itself. I've moved to a new state.
I don't have a doctor who can assist me yet. But my inquiry was regarding the vendor. I managed to use the live chat feature. The agent that handled my questions managed to answer all of them. But said I have to send him an image of a voided check. I wanted to ask if this is something that is okay? If many have already?

Thank you.

Not a form of payment you see everywhere. But you shouldn't experience any problems.
