I really over did it on Wednesday, it was a good day, but I’ve paid for it. Would I do it again? Yeah, probably, you never know if you’ll get a different outcome! Yesterday, I was sore all over and had a nagging headache. I did take some Diamox, but not a lot. I’m still a bit afraid of that stuff.
Guess, I should’t be so afraid of it! Today, I woke up with a headache so severe I couldn’t stand up by myself. No matter what I took, it would not get better. I was super nauseous. This is the first time I’ve ever considered going to the hospital because of a headache. Usually, I think…if I just take a little more medication, and can fall asleep things will get better. Nope, not so much.
Finally, Stuart talked to Dr. Gray for the 3rd time today, and she said to prop me up, so my head and shoulders are raised. (she actually said for me to sit up first, but I was way to nauseous.) After sitting up about 20 – 30 mins, I started to feel so very much better. So my pressure had spiked again! I will have to stay on the Diamox a bit longer. I don’t like that. I’ve been struggling with low pressure cerebrospinal fluid for a long time, now I’m taking a drug to lower my pressure…crazy. I’m petrified I’ll end up taking too much and making myself have an attack because my pressure is too low. Plus, I really hate the side-effects. My hands and the heels of my feet tingle, and I feel really stupid. Everything, seems dull.
I don’t like it.
Tomorrow, is our 7th Anniversary. We had planned to go out for a romantic dinner…those plans may change. I think a Couch Picnic…as mentioned on Maureen’s blog, Sunshine and Chaos, may save the day. : )
