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. emoticon

    My prayers are with you! Make sure someone is checking in on you regularly. You're not yourself, so assign others to help you, and let them.
    Blessings and a speedy recovery!
