I have a new blog entry on Watch Me Create about how I create with chronic headaches.
In this particular case, I've had a headache constantly for three months. Yes. Three. Long. Agonizing. Months. However, there's light at the end of the tunnel (but right now I have to shield my eyes, as light hurts my head).
I finally got to see a neurologist who specializes in headaches. It took forever to wait my turn to see this guy, but it was worth it. It's been determined that I have an excess of fluid around my brain and in my spinal column, and it's pushing against the disks in my eyes. Lovely, eh? The good part is, there's a cure -- a spinal tap.
(Are you cringing right now?)
I've had two before, and no, they're not fun. But this headache feels so incredibly bad that I can't WAIT until May 22nd to get it done. The doctor WAS able to give me some medication that helps take the pressure down some, so I've lost the headache for part of the day, but by four o'clock, my neck is stiff and I get another headache. That, and the side effect is a weird tingling in my hands, which makes using pliers rather frustrating.
BUT! This could be so much worse, there's a way out, and I hope to be back to normal in a few weeks! In the meantime, I hope you'll visit Watch Me Create and read about how I've been coping.
