so here is an update of my life:
so 2 weeks ago ( march 9 ) I started having a migraine. at the time I thought it was just a stress migraine, I get them quite frequently due to my overthinking and anxiety. school and stressing over school work is also another big reason of having my stress migraine. With my stress migraines, I just take some pain medicine and it goes away. well, this wasn’t the case, I took some Ibuprofen and went to bed. I woke up the next morning with the same migraine but even stronger, this has been nonstop for the last 2 weeks. It hasn’t gone away and has been mostly in my right eye, but sometimes in both. I have had a total of 10 doctors appointments in the last week. these doctor appointments have included: 2 shots, 5 blood draws, 4 IVs, 12 different medications ( most of which being pain killers that have done nothing but make my stomach hurt), 2 CT scans, 1 ER visit and the thing I would highly not recommend 2 spinal taps. For people who don’t know what a spinal tap is let me just explain. A spinal tap is a very long ( 1.5 in- 10.5 in. needle plus a 2-9 in. base) needle stuck in your back and then stuck between the two vertebrae in your back. The doctor then sucks spinal fluid from your spinal cord measuring your pressure and testing the fluid. All of this taking about 15 mins, well you are laid completely still in a ball, high on pain medicine trying not move due to the fact that if you move you will be paralyzed. It was very very very painful and difficult to not move well they move the needle around in your back.
so well enduring all of this trying to figure out what is wrong we have only come to one thing figured out, I thankfully don’t have a brain tumor. that is all we can figure out is not wrong with me. so I’m hoping for some answers because this migraine is getting annoying.
