Hey all. I know there are a lot of my old friends, and some new ones too, who are going through a lot right now. I'm not ignoring you. I've had a migraine/stress headache for about a week. Yesterday I went to the eye doctor (for contacts) and he found a problem with my retinas. Today (it's always scary when the specialist gets you RIGHT in) I had to have my retina repaired via shots in my eye and lasers. *THAT* has sent my migraine over the top. I'm eating Lortab like candy and it's not helping. Hopefully tomorrow the pain will begin to subside.
So . . . don't think I don't care - it's just killing me to look at the computer screen (or any light or sound). This has taken me nearly an hour to type in 2 minute increments so be patient!
Oh - this is yet another genetic thing. Thanks again ancestors!
I hope you get some relief for that migraine soon and start to feel better. You answered my post a few days ago about my pathology report and gave me some great info. I appreciate you taking the time to answer that when you're feeling so bad. Get well soon.
I feel so so bad for you .. migraine for a week!!!!!! I hope you are feeling better soon my friend .. wonder how much stress a thyroidless friend can take ? You've been thru alot ... I hope the headache lessens soon.
Have they tried an old fashioned med called MIDRIN? Goes way back but used to work for me .. something to ask bout and/or look into maybe?
Hey all. Still alive and kicking (but kicking *quietly*). Headache has gone from a 9 to about a 3. Ice, Imetrex, and Lortabs are helping. My entire eyeball is red - looks horrible. I called the surgeon and he said the blood in my eye is from the shots (which I don't recommend) and the pain from burning the nerves and holding my eye open. Holy mole - not fun.
I'm getting better but looking at the computer screen still makes me want to jump out of my skin. And that's chicken skin too.
Hang in there y'all. I'll write more later. Thanks everyone for checking on me but I'll survive. As my sister reminded me - when the world comes to an end there will be my family and Keith Richards who will survive. :-) She also likes to remind me that even cockroaches can live for a week without their heads so there is hope for us.
