It's been an interesting week, primarily due to some health issues I had. On Wednesday night, I noticed a huge cut in the right side of my field of vision. Then I developed a headache and started having trouble speaking. Needless to say, my husband and I were a bit freaked out. We went to the ER and I spent Wednesday and Thursday in the hospital, being worked up for a stroke. Thank God it turned out to only be a Complex Migraine. I've never had a migraine before in my life but evidently now it's going to be a "thing" for me. I met with the neurologist, who advised me to clear my diet down to bland bare bones and add things in, keeping a symptom diary, to see if any foods are triggers for me.
How do I diet with this new restriction? I'm not sure what the heck is going on with me. I'm grateful that it wasn't a stroke. I was seriously scared for a while there. But I'm a little irritated to keep having these health issues! It's a lot harder to count points when your head feels like it's going to explode.
