Migraines have consumed my life for as long as I can remember. The only time I ever remember having relief for more than a couple of weeks was during pregnancy--which could be the underlying reason as to why I enjoy it so much.
Yesterday I woke up with a pain that was unlike any migraine I have ever experienced. It was on top of my head, rather than on the front above my eye. It was only when I stood or sat but I didn't feel [as much] pain while lying. I knew very early in the day (around 9:15) that it was not going to ease so my mom came and we took a trip to the ER. The concern was that I had a possible small bleed from the injection in my back last week, since that is sometimes a side effect of a procedure like that. However, since it had been 10 days, the Dr was sure that this was not the case. I had a CTA scan and it came up normal which is a huge relief. They gave me a combined dose of different medicines that basically knocked me out for 4 hours. I rested but woke with the same pain.
I came home. Went to bed. Rachel and Sara were here with the kids which was a huge help and although it's hard for me to let go and let them help me...I did. And I'm glad.
I slept the entire night only waking to use the restroom.
I woke up today with the same headache.
Stabbing pains only when I stand, sit and walk.
However...after a few different meds I am feeling better for this very moment.
So will you pray?
Pray away fear.
Pray away anxiety over the pain returning.
And pray that the pain WILL NOT return.
I'm laying down to rest again now.
Someone will update again later.
Thanks in advance for your love!
