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.
