I try really hard not to complain too much in my posts. While, yes...this blog is about my struggles with Migraine & Chronic Headache...I try not to make it all about me, me, me. I hate sounding & acting like a martyr. Sometimes, though, I can't help it.
I am utterly miserable.
Since Monday afternoon I have been in bed...sick as a dog. (Really, what the hell does that mean anyway?).
I have taken every OTC medication & tried every natural remedy I can possibly think of...which has given me no relief. With each day...I feel worse. So now I am guessing I am dealing with a more resistant beast & will need antibiotics.
So here is the real dilemma...
Tomorrow at 7am I am scheduled to have 1 of 2 medial branch blocks at my c-1 & c-2 level.
Now, the responsible nurse in me knows I should've called to reschedule...again...or at least called to inform the staff at the surgery center of my current condition. I know anesthesiologists don't necessarily feel good about putting sick people "under"...especially for an elective procedure.
However, the hurting, sick me is desperate. Since I've gotten sick...my head has felt on the verge of explosion & my occipital nerves feel as if they are on fire.
Here is hoping all goes well in the morning & they don't kick me out & tell me to come back another day!
