It has been a rather interesting couple of days. My appointment went well. I am going to try Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy, depending on how much it costs and what Medicare covers. I will call on that tomorrow. Anyways, I had had a bad headache from the night before. I didn't sleep very well on Tuesday night because of the pain. It didn't matter what side I was laying on, it hurt, bad. I mentioned it to the arthritis doctor and she said to go to my primary care doctor. I said I would. Well, I had lunch and went home to teach lessons all the while the head was getting worse and worse. I taught 4 lessons and how I do not know. After the last student left, I decided to go to the ER. I really didn't want to go but it just hurt so much I couldn't stand it anymore. Nothing was working for it either and I mean nothing. It was like all I took was a sugar pill. So I got the ER and it wasn't that busy. I didn't wait very long, what a surprise! A nice one though! I got some pain medicine almost right away. I was so pleased! I got some tummy medicine as it was upset too because of the pain. I had a CT scan also because of my history of blood clots they always have to rule that out. I don't mind because the test is quick and it doesn't hurt. It came back clean so that was a relief although I didn't think it was a blood clot because the pain would have been a sudden pain and this wasn't sudden so I did not think it was one. I stayed for a long while because they couldn't send me home right away because of the strong pain killers they had given me. I chose not to stay because the head felt much better. Instead of the pain level of 10, it had gone down to 8, which to me was good enough. I did have an upset tummy when I was being discharged but I didn't say anything. It didn't last too long and from experience, I knew it wouldn't. I got home and had a sandwich to eat because I was very hungry at that time. I hadn't had anything to eat since 1 pm in the afternoon. I did make the right decision that I could go home because I don't have a super bad headache tonight, only a slightly bad headache. I asked Laith's mom if she knew a neurologist that was good. She gave me the name of one and I will call her tomorrow and make an appointment. It is time to go and see what is up. For the last few months I have had bad headaches at least 4 to 5 days a week. That is just too many to have. I did forget the prescription for the tummy medicine at the ER though. That upsets me. I didn't mean to forget but I didn't put it on my purse like I normally would. Oh well, I don't think they would send it to me.
I am rather tired because of not having much sleep on Tuesday and last night too. Ugh, at least I can sleep in tomorrow! That is good!
Well, I am waiting for the weatherman to tell me what kind of weather we will have for the rest of the week then I am heading for bed. I will read a bit too.
