A Visit To ER
Friday, November 18, 2011
Around 11am, yesterday, as I was getting dressed to go to a luncheon at my Mother's nursing home, I felt a pin prick type of pain (on the back right of my head). This pain continued on through out the day and night. At 3 am, the pain was so bad, I thought about going to the ER. but I decided to wait.
I went to ER at 8am. They gave me drugs (meds) and I could not function after that.
At first, the ER Doc. told me I was having a Severe Migraine. But when my brother James came to pick me up, the ER Doc told us that I was having a Stress Headache. But then I noticed the paperwork that I was given upon leaving, said the word "Headache." So, I guess I have a headache (of sorts).
I am still groggy from the meds. given to me in ER
8 hours ago. The pain never went away, but the pain caused by the severe spasms did. Unfortunately, that severe pain is coming back. But I am reluctant to take any more pain reliever, because I am still so sleepy.
I will be getting back in the bed shortly and hope that I can sleep this off.
I do not want another day like this. I vote for the good days. O.K.
