Okay, so we all have our colds and stuff, but now, this is even worse!
I had been having aches in my legs since Sunday, and yesterday when I woke up, I thought there was a knife in the base of my skull!! It hurt sooooo bad!! Now I have had headaches before, but this was unreal, and unlike anything I have ever had! The whole back of my skull and neck hurt really bad. I was a little un-coordinated, and in a whole heaping lot of pain.
Well, silly me, I decided I needed to go to work, so I drove to work, hurting all the way, and as soon as I got there, everyone knew something was wrong.....I guess I don't have the poker face I thought I did? I told them about the pain in my skull, and they all came up with diagnosis......let's see, there was "brain tumor" and "stroke" and "migraine" and all sorts of other lovely things you want to hear as soon as you get to work!! lol
And it's not like I didn't think of all those things myself, I just chose to ignore them....and if you read my last post about being in the hospital, (you can read it here) you know that there is nothing I like better than staying away from any healthcare facility!! But my boss told me I had to call my Doctor and get checked right away!
So I did.....and I got an appointment within the hour, so off I went to my appointment. Okay, here is the good part.....He thinks (THINKS?) that it is a pinched nerve, but it could also be meningitis or temporal arteritis....whatever the heck that is??? He didn't do alot of explaining. But for now, they gave me a shot in the muscle, for what I don't remember?? He told me, but I just remember he said it will help with the pain... and he sent me for blood work to "check out some things" and sent me home to rest with ice and heat and 2 prescriptions....and if I don't feel better by Friday...to call him.
And he said there was the posibility of bleeding going on in there, though he doesn't think so, but he wants to keep tabs on it??? How can he keep tabs on it if he sends me home with meds? I'm confused, but happy that I didn't have to go to the hospital again.....whoa.....I DON'T want that again....ever!
Anyway, I will try to keep you all posted as to what is going on with my head! Wish me luck, and say a prayer for me.......
