To anyone reading this, I hope you had a great weekend!
Mine was pretty traumatic.
Saturday was Day 7 in Migraine Hell and the pain was the worst I’ve felt in a really long time. I could barely move from the couch. I took all the meds I possibly could, trying to avoid going to the ER…
…But I ended up there anyway. At 1 am, I finally gave in. I should have gone at 1 pm–12 hours earlier–but I was being stubborn. I learned my lesson the hard way. Luckily, there weren’t too many people in the ER at 1 am, so even though “migraine” doesn’t typically get treated quickly in the Emergency Room, I had blood work done and was lying in a hospital bed in a dark room within an hour.
Unfortunately, luck wasn’t on my side. They gave me a “cocktail” of medications through an IV (plus fluids), and *something* triggered an insane panic attack. I was stuck there, thinking I was dying, and I just wanted to go home. SO TERRIFYING! I received another medication, and this one calmed me down enough to fall half asleep. Sometime after 5 am, I was feeling “better” (aka super out of it) and I was able to go home to sleep.
Yesterday was recovery day at home. I still felt panicky and had a less-evil migraine to deal with.
And now today is Monday. I am making appointments to go see allllllll the doctors. Back to my primary, back to my neurologist, back to the chiropractor (although that’s a given, since I always see him every other week )… going to get another MRI done… and I have to schedule an appointment with an ENT about TMJ.
What a life. I am only 30 years old. Been dealing with this crap for 16 years. Too much pain. After I just had a couple good weeks at the beginning of July! When will it get better? Will I ever be normal?
