II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

What a pain in the head!!!

I have had a horrible headache for about 4 days now (with the exception of most of yesterday). It feels like I have an enormous amount of pressure built up behind my eyeballs. Strange, I know. What really stinks about it is that nothing will get rid of it! I have taken so many Tylenol and Advil it's not even funny. I take more at least every 2 hours (if not sooner) and still nothing. I've even started taking 3 at a time instead of 2, and still nothing. If I lay down, that does seem to help some...but you know me...it about kills me to lay down when there are a hundred other things I could/should be doing. I am starting to get really frustrated with this though. I just want to feel good again. Yesterday, I felt a lot better but I can't figure out why. What was really weird is that this morning I got up and started cooking breakfast and everything was fine and then suddenly the headache came back...and I recognized the very moment that it came back. Now here I am again, popping pills left and right. Matt says I should go see a doctor but a headache seems like such a lame reaso to go to the doctor. I mean, what can they possibly do, other than maybe an x-ray or something, that would tell anything? I don't know. Anyway, I had a few minutes so I thought I'd blog. But, as you can see...I don't have much interesting to say. Well, actually--Matt's dad came down yesterday to visit us and that was pretty exciting. The kids just LOVE him and Matt and I have enjoyed having him here too. Last night my mom watched so we could go out to dinner. While we were gone, Brookyln baked a cake for her PeePaw and we all had chocolate cake and ice cream when we got home (bad for my diet, I know)! Right now, Matt and his dad are gone to the lumber store to get some wood so they can finish framing out Matt's shop building for the garage door he's about to have installed. Brooklyn is over at mom's and Grant is in the bathroom playing in the sink. (not my favorite thing for him to be doing...but hey...it's just water and it's buying me a couple of minutes of me-time)! ha ha

Well, I just typed another 4 or so paragraphs and then some how lost it all...so, I guess I will have to start ALL over! AUGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! That makes me way more mad than it should. It's just that I'd probably spent at least half an hour "wording" what I was typing and now it's all gone! ERGHHHHH!!
Okay....I'm gonna have to go for now. Hope you are all having a good weekend!

OK..I hope you get this sooner than later. After all my headache issues in my last pregnancy, I have become somwhat of a specialist on the subject. Here's what I know...taking too much medicine can actually CAUSE a headache. I don't mean over the dosage amount, I just mean for over 2 days in a row. The actual headache may be gone but the meds may be causing a whole new one. I know this is true b/c I had 2 or 3 different doctors ask me these questions when I was going thru it. Another thing to try is to drink water...it's known that if you are somewhat dehydrated that it can cause a headache. Another thing to try is an ice pack on the back of your head and neck area. Not for more than 10-15 minutes (a chiropractor told me that and it helped me a couple times) and one more thing that I try a lot (b/c of this kidney disease...I am not supposed to take ibuprophen and tylenol does absolutely nothing for me) is to get muscle rub like from Walmart(yah that stuff that smells like your grandma) and rub it on your neck and up the back of your head. It will relax those muscles some and it works for me a lot. Make sure you are getting enough sleep and if you are drinking substantially less caffiene than you usually do then try some coffee. I really think though...based on what you said in your blog that it might be the medicine. I know this was long and if I knew your ph#, I would have called you to tell you this. I know how painful a headache can be...trust me! Oh yah, last thing...you could see a neurologist and he could determine what type of headache you have and do some small tests with a poker (it doesn't hurt) on some nerves to determine if it's something with your brain...I had that done too. I doubt it is but you mentioned seeing a doctor so I thought I would mention it. I will be praying for you!!!!!!!

I get headaches sometimes as well and the ONLY thing that will take them away is sleep, and lots of it. Don't know if this will help or not. I know you don't know me, or who I am, but I got your blog address from Logziella, and have enjoyed it. Hope that you are feeling better.
