The neurologist says he thinks the headaches are most likely not from the steroid injections, but we do not know what caused them. We must accept this and move on. We have to focus on finding something to comfort and find relief for me. Yeah well, that is not working. I have been a 7 or 8 on the pain scale every day this week.(The weather has been hot.) I am only allowed to use 7 Imitrex tablets a month. I have to take one, then one two hours later for them to work. Well that works out to only 3 times a month for me. Then I get to use 10 Tylenol days a month? The rest of the month I am to rely on ice packs?! I am told I need to accept it. So, yeah. I think this is going to be a very looooooooooooooooong summer. This has all certainly increased my prayer life and THAT is a blessing.
I received some excellent advice yesterday afternoon from Ren. She told me to get a super eye exam. The neurologist told me this also. If you can believe it, I actually forgot. Pain does that. Messes up your mind sometimes. So, I made an appointment for next week with my eye doctor. Thank you for that reminder Ren!
Have a wonderful weekend my friends! May God richly bless you.
