I had Duane take me to the ER yesterday. I hated to do it, but my head felt like it was going to explode. Duane had had such a stressful couple of days, i didn't want to, but i knew nothing else was going to help.
And he know that if i feel badly enough to go to ER i feel very badly indeed. And even more, to let them give me IM shots (which i despise & am very phobic of) i feel indeed horrible.
They gave me 2 mg of Dilaudid & ? mg of Phenergan. It took a long time for the meds to kick in. The nausea was worse, at first. But it did eventually relieve the headache. It was an atypical headache for me. It was more bi-lateral & in an area, largely the frontal bone in my forehead, that i don't usually have.
But i also started itching. Not as in a reaction that is dangerous. I didn't get red or welts, but i itched all over. I lost track of time, too. We got home & i went to bed & then woke up, feeling like it was hours later, but only 45 minutes had passed. For several hours it was that way. I'd sleep some but then the itching would wake me up. That finally wore off about 2 AM.
Today the headache has worn off, but i'm having trouble concentrating. I have read a few blogs & wanted to post comments, but drift off to sleep before i can gather my thoughts.
I know that last spring i had problems with what i thought might be Splenda, but i can't find the entries & am too worn out to search for them.
Anyway, in a nutshell, i'm better but kind of out of it for a little while.
