I think it’s a good thing that it was rainy this week. It forced me to take it easy and stay out of the garden which in turn allowed me not to overwork my poor aching back.
You might remember that I wrote earlier this week that I canceled my visit to Google Canada’s offices on Wednesday because my back was in terrible shape. I’m still terribly disappointed about that. At least the person that was organizing the meeting wrote back to me and told me that they would keep me in mind if they had any other meetings with Canadian Adsense publishers in the future.
Unfortunately I’ve also had a headache/ migraine that just won’t go away. It started on the evening of Wednesday May 26th and I still have it – 11 days later! Believe me when I say I’d rather have been doing research on the best acne treatments over the last week and a half than have this migraine.
My head is pounding and the pain in my head keeps moving. At first it was behind my right eye and on the right side of my head. Then it moved to the top middle of my head and then a while after that my left side got a turn. Now for the last three days or so the pains been mostly in the back of my head and upper neck although my right eye has some pain too.
I’ve also had those weird vision problems again too. Not the squiggly lines, but blurry or blind spots that sometimes last for hours. I have “weird” vision right now – a little wavy but more blurred than anything. I guess these are auras too, but it’s been happening while I’ve been having this headache / migraine. Visual headaches usually have no pain when they are occurring and then an hour or more later the headache starts.
Well maybe I’ll find out what’s going on in July when I’m set to have an MRI of my head. Hopefully it really is just migraines.
I’m a little worried though because the neurologist said that since my headache / migraine pattern has changed so drastically recently – along with the aural migraines that I could be having small strokes. He also wrote a letter to my pain doctor and said the same thing but in more detail. I didn’t read the letter but when my pain doctor told me what he’d written I realized that he really thought I might be having small strokes or TIA’s and hadn’t just been mentioning it as a possibility.
I guess that’s made me a little more nervous when I get a migraine or when the visual symptoms start up … and of course stress doesn’t help alleviate a headache – does it? I suspect that when I do have my MRI my brain will be as normal looking as it’s ever been … but I’m still glad that I’m having the test soon – just to be sure.
