Migraine and fear in Migraines and Other Headaches - Not Tonight, Dear Posted March 11, 2013 I'm seriously considering going to Urgent Care, if for no other reason than to get some painkillers. This may sound stupid but the only reasons I haven't gone yet are: 1) I don't want to sound whiny or for the doctors in urgent care or ER to look at my history and say, "Oh, mental illness. She must be drug-seeking." I know it's crazy, considering I've never been addicted to anything in my life (unless you count coffee) but I'm always afraid that docs make a connection between MI and drug-seeking behavior; and 2) I don't want to freak my husband out. He's already freaked out because I've had a "headache" for a month. I say "headache" because anything that isn't a migraine is, to me, hardly worth mentioning but I did mention it because, yes, it was happening every day. But now, I've had two migraines in two weeks and they both had this terrible vertigo with them and now this one has lasted more than 3 days which has never happened, to my recollection. It's always been 3 days tops. I wake up one day with the migraine and I wake up on the 4th day without a migraine but exhausted and sometimes mildly depressed, like I've just lived through a minor trauma or a long illness. I'm trying to get laundry done and tomorrow a maid is coming by for three hours--a gift from a friend--and I'm supposed to go to a playdate with my kids as well and husband and I had plans for cleaning out the garage and closets this week and I just want to be well.
