Fatigue can be as debilitating as head pain. I felt unbelievably fatigued all day and remained in bed until 3:00. Then finally got up to hang out with kids when head pain began escalating so now I am back in bed both fatigued and with head pain. I am anxious to go back to the Dr to hopefully find some new options.
The headache continues at a level that is not quite debilitating and yet I still don’t find myself able to function very well. The light sensitivity/photophobia seems to be quite extreme lately so it makes it hard to be up and about. And the overstimulation/phonophobia (often brought about by to much noise or movement aka Gideon jumping about). So in order to avoid the headache becoming debilitating I hunker down in the basement or I sleep. None of this is the description of someone with a manageable headache.
I will give the meds some more time but I have begun looking into the two in patient headache clinics and both are in network for my insurance. My next call will be to find out if they have availability of rooms and what it might entail. I just want to get back to my family and to my work. Shoot I would even love to be able to go to the store or out to eat but the thought is terrifying to me. So prayers for guidance on the next step that is right for me and my family.
