Neurologist Update – Urgent MRI

I want to give everyone an update on what’s going on. Today I went to the neurologist because I’m having “exertion headaches” (look up thunderclap headaches caused by exertion and it’s probably caused exactly by what you’re thinking.)

A couple of you (well, three) know details. It’s not so much that I’m embarrassed of the particulars I just don’t want to expose people to details they don’t want to hear.

ANYWAY. I was hoping for the doctor to reassure me, instead she was concerned, baffled by the fact that I haven’t had an MRI ever consider I’m an epileptic, and mentioned that my “exertion headache” isn’t normal. It’s very localized and it lasts too long. She wanted me to have two MRI done like, NOW. Now now. Started calling every place nearby to find a place that could see me immediately. So that’s a great feeling. /s

And now here I go all by myself and I can’t begin to tell you how much I wish I could have my husband with me, it’s never great to see a neurologist worried. Plus she said the reflexes on the right side of my body are a little weaker (that’s the side of my head I have the headaches on, in my temple.)

So yeah this sucks royally. Gonna keep you all as posted as possible.
