I wish it was migraines. Because then I could take something to help. This one was the worst in a while. It made me seriously wonder if my MCS battery was dying.
Went to bed Friday after another 11 hour workday. Woke up Saturday morning hurting. Went back to a fitful sleep for a couple hours, then gave up and migrated to the couch. I tried to adjust my neck, but the normal popping sounds weren't happening - not good.
By that afternoon, I couldn't touch my right cheek without setting the pain off even worse. Definately not good.
Went to bed with muscle relaxants in my system, woke up 12 hours later. Headache even worse Sunday morning.
I'm now where I barely ate anything Saturday, and yet I'm not hungry because my upper teeth on the right side are in so much pain that eating would be intolerable. Plus the pain is bad enough that I'm sick to my stomach. Slept a few fitful hours on the couch. Still can't make any adjustments to my neck. Try more relaxants.
Toss and turn all Sunday night. I give in and call in sick to work Monday. I'm trying not to think that suddenly this is the end of my MCS success. I'm hoping the pain will start to get better. I had to go and drop off some paperwork later that morning, returned home and threw up. Finally injected some Zofran to stop that. I know I'm getting dehydrated, so at least I have to work on getting some water in me.
By around 4:30 Monday afternoon, it starts to get better. I can touch my right cheek without wincing. My neck starts making sounds like it's adjusting (finally).
Take more muscle relaxants, watch 24. Tell boyfriend I'm better, and go to bed.
I was finally able to sleep on my right side again. A sure sign things are getting better.
So dragged myself in to work today. Wish I could have had some time to recuperate from that, but I would probably get stir crazy.
My theory as to the cause - I'm hoping it's hormones due to period. My gyn NP said that after February's cycle, I can go to constant birth control and not have periods. I have a follow up with her in a week, so I'll see if I can go constant now.
