I saw this on someone else's blog, and decided to steal it, since I have SOOO much free time on my hands at work! The point is to blog everyday, using the next letter of the alphabet everyday as your "inspiration." I'm not much for blogging regularly, so we'll see how this goes.
A - Ache!!! As in headache! It's atrocious! A$$-kicking! Annoying!
Today is a BAD headache and neckache. I'm used to getting headaches and migraines regularly (read: everyday for 12+ years now...) I've seen just about every type of doctor out there. Been on several elimination diets (some as strict as eliminating onions and tomatoes!) Ive been to the chiropractor, massage therapists, had trigger point injections (that was AWFUL!) Ive been on pretty much every drug you can think of for migraines: Imitrex, Frova, maxalt, blood pressure meds, allergy meds, etc. Nothing seems to help.
I partially know what the problem is. I have a rare-ish scoliosis in my T-Spine and a straight C-spine (which is supposed to be curved.) I grind my teeth. A lot. The dentist asked me about it the other day...so I've been paying attention to it. Not only do I seem to grind overnight...but I grind my teeth ALL DAY! I grind to the beat of music, I grind when Im bored, I grind when Im watching tv...it's nuts! My hormones are always out of whack. So all that contributes to the awful headaches/migraines.
So for now...I just deal with it until I can figure out a new plan... *sigh* This is getting old. But, everyone has struggles, right?
