More Pain

I'm waking up between 3 and 6 am with major migraines. I think it's interesting that I get them on the top of the head and in the temples. I never really realized that before, because the pain in the back of my head was so severe.

Another symptom I've been having since that bizarre episode, is that while I'm sleeping, one side of my body will fall asleep. It gets very uncomfortable and kind of feels like it feels when you bang your elbow against something, only it runs down my whole side of my body. And it occurs when my mig starts to get really bad. So, when I try to turn over, it's excruciating and makes me cry--which of course doesn't help the mig. It's really hard to turn over too. It feels like I'm pressing against 50 lb weights to turn over. Ugh!

So, this is just friggin great! Just what I needed, another symptom to add to the damn list. The only good thing is (Pollyanna moment here) that the migs seem to get better by mid to late afternoon, so I haven't been taking as much medication and I am rarely taking the fioricet. They don't take away the pain, but they do make it a little more tolerable--sometimes. I'm not taking the heavy duty meds, because I've noticed that the migs are going away in the afternoon and I'm a tough bird and feel like enduring the pain until it goes away, unless the pl gets to an 8 or 9, in which case I try the meds and if they don't work I go to the docs for a shot, but that's only happened once so far, although, yesterday I seriously considered it. But, considering what I was told at the last appointment I had, I don't feel like I can go back for shots and I don't want to go to the hospital, because, well, you know, I've blogged about that before.

Today, I'm on fioricet, though and will probably need an imitrex shot in awhile if it doesn't start kicking in. Gosh, I have to go to the dentist's today, too. I'm dreading the drive down more than the poking and prodding by the dentist. It doesn't help that I can't eat, because my tooth is so painful. Oh, and they were nice enough to inform me yesterday that this appt is just for x-rays and med history. In order to get my teeth worked on (I have two cavities, I'm sure and two broken teeth, because of all the meds I'm on), I'll most likely have to wait until june. There's only one dentist in town that will take state insurance and they're totally booked up with the indigent and poor. I can't believe I'm so poor. We went from making %50-60K per year to $11,000. Stu was pulling in $24K at his job and I made significantly more, so when I lost my job and our med bills climbed to $20K (our part of our insurance because of meds and a %20 deductible on hospital visits, you can imagine how many of those I had), well, you can see why we had to move in with family. This totally bites!
