I had my appointment this morning with my new primary care physician, Dr. W. I really liked her. Thank goodness! I was so hoping I would. She was extremely thorough with me...more so than any other PCP has ever been. She did a complete head to toe physical and went over my medical history extensively. Even at the end when I started sobbing like a lunatic, she handed me some tissues and was very sweet. She gave me a referral to a new Migraine Specialist. I don't necessarily want to "fire" Dr. E. (yet, anyways), but I do want some other opinions. Dr. W. said she'd leave my complicated head up to the neuro's! Good choice on her part!
So tomorrow is a big day for me. Back to work after an over 3 month leave of absence. I am petrified! I know it's like riding a bike, and I know my job well, but I am still nervous. I am praying for a no migraine or headache day! Pretty tall order considering I have one almost everyday. As long as it is somewhat bearable and I have no vision loss, I think I can do it. Since being discharged from the hospital I have had a headache most of the time. There have been times where it has gone away, but come back again. I am sure most can relate to that! So today I picked up my new prescription of Sumavel DosePro and just took an "injection" to see if it would help. Again, I want so badly to be pain free when I wake up at 530am! Well, first of all...it's such a weird delivery system! It kinda hurt...and it left a dime size indention in my thigh that bled for 30 minutes! I hated the feeling the medication gave me, as I do with all triptans, but took an ativan and got through the initial side effects. Now, I am just itchy all over! Is that a bad sign?
