Thank Pepsi for Dew! Especially Dew slurpees… Tastiest migraine remedy yet.

It’s not fair!!! I had a good day! But the sounds are starting to get to me, and the headache is coming back. Next will be light and nausea I bet. GRRRRRR

Like I figured — everything normal. MRI Normal. At least we didn’t have to pay for it.

Migraine bad

MRI not so bad (what House leaves out is that MRI machines are loud!) – good thing I am not claustrophobic. I almost fell asleep.

Naps good.

Vicodin good

Coffee good

BUT MY HEAD STILL HURTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
===========================================================

And a co-worker just gave me mini-acupuncture and it worked … for a little bit.

Stress is NOT good.

I started the day out with a 24oz Pepsi (who needs coffee when you have Pepsi?) and then a co-worker gave me migraine medicine (which my doc tells me is basically aspirin+caffeine), then i had a Barq’s root beer and I think I probably had more Pepsi somewhere along the way … and 2 glasses of water at dinner … and then I took a Vicodin and … no headache, but neither am I tired!!! My hands are freezing, contributing to typos galore, but alas, it is not a sign of sleepiness 😦

So, I think I just need to brush my teeth, take out my contacts, and lay my little @$$ down to sleep. Though it could be that I don;t have to be at work first thing in the morning. My MRI is at 8:15 … and Tim just offered to go with me. Ok, off to bed. Good Night all.

So, apparently a 4 day headache with no previous history of migraines in my immediate family or myself warrants an MRI. Or she could have sent me to the ER for a CAT scan, that would basically tell me if I was in immediate danger of dying or not. (After the last ER visit I am SO glad that she didn’t).

So I get an MRI tomorrow morning and had bloodwork done today. With my luck my bloodwork will come back normal and the MRI will reaveal (drumroll please) NOTHING.

Though Tim did confirm that I grind my teeth in my sleep. So I get to make a dentist’s appointment to get fitted with a mouth guard. At least it’s not gingivitis …
