The Scan

Pin It
I went to the hospital today and found out that I didn’t need an MRI, but instead, I needed a CAT scan. As I walked along the hallway with the nurse, I jokingly asked, “Is this going to be a problem? I’m allergic to cats.”

She burst out laughing and proceeded to tell this little comment to several other people on our journey down to the room where I’d have my head examined.

It didn’t take nearly as long as I originally thought; and since I went in early, I was on the road to southern Utah a few hours before I’d originally intended.

I’ll know on Monday.

Have a great Thanksgiving - I'll keep my fingers crossed that everything works out the way you're hoping for.

Hi, Stumbled across your blog entry, fellow migraine sufferer. In case it's at all helpful, one medication that I've found really a godsend is Migranal, a spray you can use even after the headache starts - http://prescriptionmigrainerelief.com/HTML-INF/index.shtml
(No, no affiliation!)

Also, I found out I had adult onset shellfish allergy after a full-on anaphylactic attack. But while migraine isn't allergy, per se, I'd had many lesser reactions (e.g. vomiting), coupled with crippling migraines after eating shellfish for a few years before the BIG reaction.

Any suspicions you might be eating something you've grown allergic to? If you want to find out more about allergies, see the forum at: www.allergicliving.com

Whatever it is, all the best with getting your brain pain under control. And Nickel Creek AND Toad TWSprocket - good taste.

I will read up on Monday to see what you post about your test.
I hope they can find the reason for them.
You are in my prayers.

Gwen - Thanks for the info. If nothing comes up with the scan or testing, I'll look into this option as well.

You're right, Toad and Nickel Creek are both AMAZING bands!

Lydia - Thanks.

Kris - The world will be the second to know that there is nothing wrong with my head...

KJ - Thanks, KJ, I appreciate it.

DV - Diddo.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh FINALLY! I have been up almost all night catching up on each and every one of your posts- and this one is the last. Seems I got a bit behind since Jack-Jack's accident. Well, after talking w/you tonight I wanted so much to get back in touch, so to speak. You see, I've missed you. I have so enjoyed the past 3 hrs. Thank you for all of your posts. I don't know if you'll ever read this comment so far back, but if you do- :)

ps. "Allergic to cats"- good one!
