A little migraine update

Hi guys,

Unfortunately I'm just not up to posting today, but I just wanted to give you all a little update as to my situation.  You all have been so sweet as I'm going through this situation to figure out the cause of my migraines and I feel like I am talking to a bunch of friends and I mean that very honestly.

Tuesday night I had such a bad migraine I couldn't fall asleep and Wednesday I woke up and it was just as bad.  I had never had such a painful or worse migraine.  I couldn't eat, my migraine medicine had no effect, and I just laid in the dark.  Finally at 4 o'clock, things had gotten so bad I was panicking.  I was very close to taking myself to the emergency room but it's a half an hour away.  I ended up driving the five minutes to the convenient care where they gave me a shot in my hip.  That took the pain down for about six hours. 

I am up in bed again today.  I tried calling the doctor's but my doctor is away until next Thursday.  Something showed up on my MRI so I am waiting for the on-call doctor to call me at home.  I already know it's not a tumor or something like that, but I've heard two different things from two different people.  I'm also hoping they can prescribe me something stronger to take the pain down.

Like I said, I feel like you guys are my friends and I would tell me friends what was going on with my health.  I don't need sympathy, I simply wanted to give a little update and let you guys know where I'm at. 

Also if you missed it, a new giveaway is up and running for two OPI polishes and one Barielle polish.  Think of it as a "thanks for putting up with me" giveaway.  You can find it here.


  1. I'm sorry your dr is on vacation, but I hope someone gets back to you soon. Constant headaches are so hard to deal with, especially since you don't look sick....people think you're faking or just a pill junkie. Huge hugs to you!

  2. I hope you get better soon, Erin! I know what it's like to wait for scary test results. Sending happy thoughts!

  3. You poor thing! I'm also a migraine sufferer and it's just miserable. I hope you're better soon!

  4. Erin, I hope you begin to feel better soon and that the dr calls you and explains what showed up on the MRI. Perhaps he'll alos give you some more meds to help with the pain.

    When I have a migraine I just stay in a dark, cool room and try not to move.

    Please keep us posted if you can.

    huge hugs,

  5. Try drinking some feverfew tea in the meantime!

  6. Hoping and praying for a resolution to your migraines, I used to suffer from them and know how miserable they can be!

  7. Oh, sweetie! I can relate to the bad headaches and know the pain. I really hope you are going to feel better!

  8. Take care. You are in my thoughts.

  9. Hope your doctor is able to find the reasons behind your headache soon so you can start to feel better. *hugs* <3
