Migraine Madness


It’s been more than 5 weeks since the episode that triggered my doctor sending me to an MRI, and thankfully I haven’t had any more symptoms.  In addition, I had a follow up appointment, and my doctor seems pretty confident that the symptoms were caused by a migraine headache.  She thinks the benign tumors are an incidental finding and aren’t the cause.

In support of her theory is the fact that I have had migraines since I was a young child, even though the typical migraines have been few and far between in my adult years.  I have also been having what my eye doctor thinks are ocular migraines for several years, and I had two that day.  My dad even had atypical migraines too, including one where he lost his vision for a few hours, and I have had a very similar medical history as my dad.

I have been under an incredible amount of stress lately too.  I’m not generally one who experiences anxiety and can work and function well under pressure, but I admit it has been rough going.  I keep thinking it will be done soon, but then it keeps going on…  I’m still optimistic!

I’m still waiting on my neurology appointment, but it is comforting to know that my regular doctor thinks things are ok.  I did have some bloodwork done today and I will keep pressing to try to move up the neurology appointment.  I will update as I know more.

Today I went to a flea market and found three puzzles that I couldn’t resist.  I managed to resist all the other urges to add to my eclectic collections though! 

In other news, 4 years ago today I started my incredible road trip, and I’m feeling very nostalgic about it.  I really want to be back out on the road, and it is tough to see the memories and not be able to get out there again!  I hope you all are having a good weekend!
