Still have a headache...

So whats new you say? Nothing much really. Its the sign of the times. Its happening again. & guess what my doctor Neurologist hasn't got a clue. She however has refered me to a Acupuncturist. So tomorrow for the 1st time in my life I will be going to get Acupunture. Yea Steve is like going crazy he said next she will be prescribing a Chiropractor which he so doesn't believe works either. He wants me to be refered to someone else. I also have been mixed a different drug cocktail to combat migraine symptoms. I've up my medications and I now have injectable pain medication that is suppose to help with the onset migraine headache pain.

So I also have paperwork into my Dr. right now too for medical leave and thats complicated too. I almost got in an accident driving to see if she was done filling it out. I don't know why or how. I was feeling ok to drive. My headache pain was at a tolerable level when I left the house and I was just trying to concentrate on the road and I guess I was just paying attention to the wrong signal light. Its the stupidest near miss I have ever had. The left signal was red I thought my was green (which it wasn't) so I went through it. I almost collided with an SUV. The lady came and sort of scolded me telling me I needed to drive more carefully I told her I knew. I shouldn't be driving. I told her I was sorry. All I could do was apologize. I felt really bad. Anyway all that and I still have no paperwork or no idea how long I will be out. Yea a wasted trip. I know insane. I'll call next time.

I have weigh in tonight. If I'm feeling better I will go. Otherwise I will wait and go tomorrow.

Steve and I went camping over the weekend. I had only 1 migraine. I was trying to see if maybe I could get lots of fresh clean air. Out of my normal enviorment maybe that could get me out of this cycle. Hey why not try to self cure this issue. I did a hike on Saturday. Part of it was uphill 2 miles. Yea I was totally working through a huge amount of pain there. My nausea was crazy I didn't want Steve to notice though. I just kept going. All and all it was a good trip.

ive only read this post/entry and haven't read any of your previous entries - so pardon me if what i write now is common knowledge; i'm not trying to be patronizing - but your blog name is where's the cheese, and this thread is about migraines.you are aware that eating some cheeses in particular ages/cheddar and cottage cheese can encourage a migraine? other foods inc. peanut butter, chocolate and red wine.

sorry, if you've already been told this.
