This is most likely going to be a short and sweet Health Update Thursday since I'm battling a migraine as I type and the light is starting to make me a wee bit nauseous.
The last several days to a week have been, for lack of a better term, torturous. I sincerely wish, dear friends and readers, that was an exaggeration, too.
My menstrual cycles have gone from bad to worse; last month was a pretty severe one with a ruptured ovarian cyst and this month, it's the same story. I've been bed bound for the past 3 days in excruciating pain just waiting until it's all over.
I actually ended up going over to the local Immediate Care two days ago because I was shaking and in tears due to the high amounts of pain. Of course the doctors at Immediate Care aren't equipt to deal with anything like an ovarian cyst so they just gave me a shot in my tooshie and sent me on my way.
Believe you me, I was beyond thrilled to get that shot!
The best part of this all (yes, that was sarcasm)? Anything I take doesn't help the pain. At. All. I've taken your standard over the counters, I've taken prescriptions, I've taken vitamins, herbs, supplements, I've done exercise and stretching, I've done heat, I've done ice...Imagine being in excruciating amounts of pain that's always there regardless of what you do.
You'd cry, too!
As of right now it's just playing the waiting game. Still in bed, still in a lot of pain.
Something's gotta break sometime, right?
