Has My Warranty Expired?

Thursday, July 19, 2012

I'd been dealing with off and on headaches for a week or so, until Saturday at 1:00 am. Since then it's been a constant, very painful headache that just wont go away. I left work early Monday to see a doctor, who told me she feels it may be a migraine, but I've had migraines before. Not one of them has felt like this. I had small waves of nausea, but no sensitivity to light or noise.

The doctor put me on a steroid for 6 days. I'm halfway through my pill pack now and only notice a small amount of relief. I think I'll be headed to a neurologist when my pills are gone. Hello brain scan!

In addition to the brain pain, I've had foot pain since April, but it's been manageable. I decided to see my podiatrist to see if there's something I should do that might help the healing process... I was better off doing what I was doing, because now I'm undergoing physical therapy, of sorts, that involves Cortisone shots. OUCH! Those stupid injections hurt worse than any pain I experienced with the injury. I've not been able to put weight on my foot since yesterday - darn it! *sigh* I'm a mess!

Where in the handbook did it say that my warranty would run out before I turned 40? emoticon

    Fingers crossed that your road to recovery becomes less painful. I think you have quite a few years left on your warranty. You just need to do handle some maintenance issues. emoticon

    EvaBot's warranty expired a LONG time before 40. Soon you'll be offered the extended warranty.

    Seriously feel better Jen.

    Bummer! Don't you just HATE it when "stuff" happens one atop the other? Makes you want to dig up those old Bio Rhythm charts and plug in some dates! Do you have any knee issues? My foot pain stemmed from my need for a replacement! I went the air cast, shots, orthodics, acupuncture route. Finally the acupuncturist told me if he couldn't get the pain under control with his treatment I needed to look into the knee. Bingo. All better.You're too young to be thinking about that though. I hope they figure out your problems PDQ.

    I am sorry you are going through such touch times. Hang in there and exercise any way you can. It can't hurt. I hope the headaches and foot aches subside soon.

    I wish there was more I could say to cheer you up.

    I'll tell your head and foot to stop being OUCH! Stop it, you two! (...did it work?) emoticon

    Maybe your personal trainer isn't hot enough? If he was hotter, I'm sure you'd be in zero pain?!? emoticon

    I hope you feel better soon! emoticon
