I am also glad that it was nothing serious with the MRI. But as far as mine goes, I wonder. I am still (more then a year later) having almost daily headaches. In fact, yesterday afternoon I finally broke down and went to the Emergency Room. I had had a REALLY BAD headache since Sunday, 4 straight days. It was blurring my vision, making me sick to my stomach, feel dizzy/light headed....it was awful.
The ER Doc said that I had a migraine headache AND a very infected sinus infection. He said that I had such a bad headache that I could not tell that I had a sinus infection, and the sinus infection was so bad that it was making my headache worse. Can you imagine that? I often get headaches when I have a sinus infection, but I can tell that I have a sinus infection and the headache is not so bad that I would do just about anything to get rid of the pain, which is the point that I was at when I walked into the ER yesterday!!
The Doc gave me a shot of Imatrex for the migraine headache, another shot of phenagrhen (probably not right spelling) for vomiting from the pain medication and a prescription for 2 weeks of amoxicillan. Doc gave me strict instructions to go home & go to bed in a dark room. Which I did. I slept from 2 in the afternoon till 8 last night. Got up just long enough to get my disabled hubby into bed. Then I again slept till 9 this morning.
But now, I am very happy to say that there is no more headache.
But now my hips hurt from laying in bed for so long. My Fibro & lower back problems do not like me being in bed for very long. But I am hoping that after being up for a little bit and taking pain meds for the Fibro, that will be feeling better too.
I can tell you that a shot of Imatrex & Phengren REALLY made me feel weak & tired, even more then my Fibro/CFS does. I am hoping that the extra weakness & tiredness will wear off by the end of the day.
Well I will get off of my soap box now. Sorry to have rambled on for so long. Guess I needed someone to vent to.
Hope you ALL have a wonderful Friday and relaxing weekend.
Love to all.
HAPPY 2014. MAKE IT A FUN & HEALTHY YEAR!
