Mother of all Migraines

Aug 06, 2013 - 0 comments

Took Tramadol again and ended up with a headache again.  This one was worse than before.  Waited until late evening and took a second one.  Bam!  Migraine!!  Worst one in a looong time.  Took a Zomig and went to bed.  ended up sitting in my chair through much of the night waiting it out.  Vomited a few times.  Took second Zomeg at 3:30am.  Worked like a dream...that is the most blessed feeling.

I still want to figure out how I can take Tramadol but I sure am afraid I can't.  I see that I can take the Oxy without itching but the Tramadol would be so much easier!  Bah.  Wed surgery in 2 hrs.

Urology Physical Therapy

Quite a success!  Already learned how to forestall having to rush to the bathroom when urge hits to urinate and someone else is in there already.  Used it twice.  

Learned about the circuit from urethra muscle around to spine which signals bladder to activate.  Hope I got that correct.  Anyway, using will and the knowledge that the circuit can be interrupted by telling bladder that the message is incorrect...etc.  Winning!  I really like this therapist, too.  She's very comfortable!!!

Began my new silly experiment with the lines between my forehead that I get from sleeping on my side.  They are getting quite deep and never go away anymore.  They make me look angry and are the only deep lines I have.  I put a piece of surgical tape between my eyebrows while I slept.  It worked and the line isn't as deep but it is red. It made a line where the edge of the tape was.  Today I put my Paula's Choice good stuff on the line place.  Heh.  Wonder what I will do for tonight.  Maybe thinner tape...paper tape.  Maybe a different shape tape.  Stay tuned.

Blood draw to check kidney and liver function and for anemia.
Not sure why I have facial swelling but could be side effect of Tysabri.  Reschedule missed appt with MS dr. and talk to Dr. K-R about it.  She will be able to see test results on computer.
