Neurologist Update – Urgent MRI

I want to give everyone an update on whatโ€™s going on. Today I went to the neurologist because Iโ€™m having โ€œexertion headachesโ€ (look up thunderclap headaches caused by exertion and itโ€™s probably caused exactly by what youโ€™re thinking.)

A couple of you (well, three) know details. Itโ€™s not so much that Iโ€™m embarrassed of the particulars I just donโ€™t want to expose people to details they donโ€™t want to hear.

ANYWAY. I was hoping for the doctor to reassure me, instead she was concerned, baffled by the fact that I havenโ€™t had an MRI ever consider Iโ€™m an epileptic, and mentioned that my โ€œexertion headacheโ€ isnโ€™t normal. Itโ€™s very localized and it lasts too long. She wanted me to have two MRI done like, NOW. Now now. Started calling every place nearby to find a place that could see me immediately. So thatโ€™s a great feeling. /s

And now here I go all by myself and I canโ€™t begin to tell you how much I wish I could have my husband with me, itโ€™s never great to see a neurologist worried. Plus she said the reflexes on the right side of my body are a little weaker (thatโ€™s the side of my head I have the headaches on, in my temple.)

So yeah this sucks royally. Gonna keep you all as posted as possible.
