First, let's focus on the positive, shall we? The EE is doing much better: I am continuing the steroid treatment and eating carefully, but I did have prime rib on Christmas without any trouble. It's been months since I could eat something like that.
I am so thankful. My life is much easier now.
But now for the bummer news: I'm in the middle of a cluster headache cycle. I had a migraine on Friday, followed by two 2-3 hour clusters, one of Sunday and one on Christmas morning. I usually get several a day, so it could be worse. I'm taking prednisone, upped my neurtontin and prescription migraine meds. I took my last verapamil I had on hand and I am waiting for my neurologist to call me back.
I got a little weepy yesterday, worried I was ruining Christmas, curled up on the couch. Greg was quick to point out that the kids were distracted and fine. I was a bit loopy all day.
Right before the headaches began my fingers are turning blue, from Raynaud's syndrome. I wonder if there's a connection.
That's all for now. I hope your holidays are joyful and pain-free.
