Guys, the migraines have finally calmed the fuck down! I had one for over a week and no shot or medication would stop it. Doctor made me go to E.R. to get an emergency Cat Scan of my head. There was nothing wrong with it, but they were talking about doing a spinal tap on me.
I said – no thanks. It would be pointless, all the spinal tap would tell is if I have viral meningitis or not. If I did, there would be no treatment I would just have to wait for my body to heal.
It was pure torture. I got 5 shots in my butt and 2 in my neck. Then put on IV and given two more injections which made me feel really weird and jittery. I did not like that one bit. One of the injections in my butt gave me breathing trouble too (stopped breathing in the night had to literally tell myself to take a breath, scary). It was like everything was just making it worse.
I’m finally back at work, my neck is still a little stiff and my head pounds a little but I can function now. I just hope it doesn’t come back. I made an appointment with my dentist though. I caught myself clenching and grinding my teeth in the night. If I’m grinding and waking up in the night over and over that could be a cause of all this head trouble.
I’m going to keep putting ice on my head and heat on my shoulder areas (not at same time of course) to see if that reliefs the tightness in my neck pain.
BODY WHY DO YOU HATE ME SO????? ORZ lol
I really feel for people who get migraines chronically. If I have this again I don’t know how I will survive. My stomach problem was enough of an issue for me. HUMPH
P.S. All the drugs they gave me for migraines messed up my stomach again. I had to take some stuff to help me go and OMG it was bad, I was up all last night trying not to go in my pants! *cries*
