I feel bad I haven’t posted in here all week, but I’ve got a four-day reason. I’ve had a migraine headache all week.
It started Monday. I thought I could hoop it off at class, so I really pushed myself. My hip is finally better that I can exert myself a little more while I hoop. That part felt great. My head didn’t thank me, though.
Tuesday night was horrible. HORRIBLE. I was near tears I hurt so bad. I finally did get a prescription for my migraine from the doctor about noon. I took one of the pills in the car leaving the pharmacy. Sweet reliefe!
Wednesday……I felt like I had a hangover, which is not unusual for migraine sufferers to have after an attack. My headache slowly crept in, and I took a pill. That seemed to stop it.
Thursday, the damn headache came back and this time my pill didn’t help. I called my doctor that evening. Four days of this was enough. She agreed.
Today, I saw the nurse in the office for a double-dose of Toradol, a pain medication that is injected. I got a matching set of injections in each arm. As I walked out of the office, I started to feel like a human being again.
So far for the rest of today, I’m doing ok. I still feel a little weird, but it’s better than I have in days. That’s good, because I have a lot of hoopiness going on in the next few days. Keep tuned for next week.
