  • Horrible ER Experience

    Yesterday was kind of hellish. My migraines were worsening and I had already reached my limit of medicine I’m supposed to take in a week for them, so I ended up going to the ER. There they gave me what they call the “migraine cocktail”, which includes Toradol, Benedryl, and a nausea medicine. Unfortunately, I […]

  • At Home Medical Testing with LetsGetChecked.com

    My blog gets many offers to partnership with various companies, but I am always very picky about who I will partner with. I have two important guidelines I always try to stick to. First, I will only consider partnering with companies that promote things I would actually want to use myself. Further, I want to […]

  • Nervous About My First Gastroscopy

    Tomorrow I have my first ever upper gastrointestinal endoscopy scheduled. I’m super nervous about it. My biggest fear is that the anesthesia won’t fully knock me out and I will be conscious during it. I also worry about the possibility of the anesthesia wearing off early and waking up during it. I almost wish it […]

  • Last Night was a Disaster

    That headline is not an exaggeration. First off, my MRIs went bad. I had MRIs for my brain and neck scheduled last night, both with and without contrast. I didn’t even get to the contrast part because the first part gave me a migraine, triggered severe neck pain, and gave me a major panic attack. […]

  • Migraines Caused by Neck Issues?

    I’m still struggling with migraines, but am starting to think that they might actually be cervicogenic headaches (caused by issues in the neck). The last few days, the left side of my neck has been visibly swollen and extremely tight, causing a great deal of pain. I can’t help but notice that the worse the […]

  • Rough Week, But Some Good News

    This has undoubtedly been a rough week for me so far, but some good things have happened too. Here is a short run-down of the last few days: Sunday and Monday, one of our pipes froze because of the freakishly cold weather so we had no water until that section thawed out. Luckily, it didn’t […]

  • I Hate Kidney Stones

    Last night I spent a horrible evening passing a kidney stone. I don’t know if you have ever experienced that particular level of hell, but it is miserable. I did finally pass it late last night and immediately felt the relief, even though I am still sore and uncomfortable from the whole process. This is […]

  • Another Fun Visit to the ER

    I spent yesterday in the ER. Always lots of fun. I was rather freaked out because I literally couldn’t swallow at times and felt like I was going to choke to death or something. I also was having chest pains, trouble breathing, and feeling like I was going to pass out. Now I get to […]

  • New Blog Theme, TMJ, and Being Silly for Halloween!

    Hi everyone! First off, I want to say that I changed the theme (appearance) of my blog slightly. I don’t know if you all will notice or not, especially if you read most of my posts on WordPress’s reader function, but for those who actually visit my blog address, I hope you like the changes. […]

  • Medication Nausea and Dry Sockets – Wisdom Teeth Removal Update

    I was pretty lucky the first couple days after my wisdom teeth surgery, so I was hoping for smooth sailing all the way…but I am running into some issues now. For one thing, the combination of antibiotics, pain killers, and NSAIDS started causing a good amount of nausea the last couple days. I often feel […]
