Migraines and other pains.
Ugh. I'm writing this a week after the fact, because it hurt so much to look at a computer screen. I had my first migraine, and wow, it was terrible. White spots in my vision, my own voice made my head hurt. And I had to have the doctor point out to me that I should take migraine medicine, not regular medicine. I'm a very smart person, my mother told me so!!!!
But, we got through it, we got a bit of school done, and now I know what that is like. The oncologist wants me to come in if it happens again, since that's not a side effect of chemo. I did some reading, and my personal feeling is that since it came on after 3 days of only getting 3-4 hours of sleep, it was brought on by lack of sleep and stress. Though what could I possibly be stressed about, hmm...
I'm praying and praying for good rest and to never go through that again. I don't even know how you rate a migraine, I mean, if it can get worse than that, and you've been through it, you are my hero.
