IMITREX seems to help my nerve-impingement syndrome
I have been dealing with pain in hip. Nothing worked. Had migraine and took Imitrex. Shortly after.....migraine was gone and pain in hip and leg went away. Dr. and her nurse seemed baffled when I told them this. It feels like nerve pain in back and down leg. Although Dr. thought lower back. I too thought it only worked for migraines. Thank goodness I happened on this. It has been my only relief and Dr. said continue with what works.
