I was so super excited yesterday leaving the Neurologist. I came home and started to blog about how happy I was that I was OFF the crazy steroids. I was finally feeling like myself again.
All good things come to an end....
I woke up with yet another extreme headache. The same screaming kind, and I can't even move it hurts so much. I tried the medicine the Doctor told me to take if I felt a bad headache coming on. But, this wasn't even close to a bad headache...this was worse. Paul called the Doctor and after some time we agreed that I needed to go to the hospital. I just couldn't make the 45 minute trip to the city, to MSkcc. I went to Huntington Hospital instead. I don't even remember getting in the car. It was a quiet night in Emergency. Within minutes they had me hooked up to an IV. They gave me 10 mg of steroids, a little nausea med and happy morphine. I had relief almost instantly. They also gave me a CT scan. Then sent me home to sleep and to continue on steroids!
It was a very long morning. I am feeling better, just exhausted. Back on steroids :( I have to figure out what's going on with my brain. It's not happy and it's making me miserable. I can't keep having these silly head pains. They are so awful.
P.s. My potassium is low.
