Not catching up very quickly...

Saturday, June 23, 2012

Caught a virus last week. I guess at the GI doc's? Ronnie came down with it at the same time. Upper respiratory, and then GI... and a horrible headache. Mine turned into a migraine sometime around five or six days ago and I've been trying hard to get it to go away. The pain has my b/p up and the doctor is worried about that and wants me on Topomax, which has some horrific side effects that are almost as bad as some migraines, so I am also worried about that. Meds and I don't seem to do too well. Plus he doubled up my pain meds and wants me on them because migraines + increased bp = stroke.

Needless to say I'm not exercising. I was not eating much, averaging around 1000-1200 calories a day, tracking when I could, and I wasn't losing anything at all, then I gained six pounds. I am now in the slough of despond, I think. I'm not sure what is going on. I am going to assume that it is fluid. If so it is adding to my headache. I am trying to move it out.

    I've missed you Sue but had no idea what you were going through. I am so sorry to hear this week has been a miserable one for you and your bf. I'll also be praying for relief for your migraines. Now is not the time to worry about your weight and you're probably right it is just fluid that has build up. You're eating such few calories and I know that can really slow down our WL progress. Get better quick as I know you've been dealing with too many health problems for too long.

    Love,

    Jill

    Not a good week for you, to say the least. I get migraines too, but don't think they are as bad as yours. I take Zomig for mine. Only have to take it when I feel the headache coming on, and usually does the trick.
    I sure hope they come up with a solution for you soon. emoticon emoticon to you for a better day tomorrow.

    My poor friend, it seems like it's one vicious cycle for you. One thing may make you feel a little better but it messes something else up. I'll pray harder for you, Sue, cause I miss you. Try to take care. Noel
