I am starting to find answers to some of the symptoms which have been bothering me. I am beginning to taper off the Prednisone and it is a good thing. I was in Emergency last night with severe chorea movements my blood pressure was 200 something ver 100 something, and the worst headache I have ever experienced in my life. I screamed it was so painful, and it takes a lot to get me to that point. It turns out I have been having headaches from the Prednisone. The Migraine headache triggered Chorea Movements, which also caused my neck muscles to contract violently causing tension headache on top of the Migraine. I was given three different shots to stop the Migraine and sent home. The shots helped, but did not completely take the headache away. I was given a Benadryl shot to calm the Chorea movements as well.
Today, I slept part of the morning and had to lay down again in the afternoon when I felt the migraine try to surface again. I see silver sparkles during the migraine/ perhaps before. I didn’t do very much today, just took care of myself and did stress-free enjoyable things like my Familysearch work. I am planning a make up group which is just for fun, not to sell anything thing time. I think I will enjoy it better and even learn something in the process. I have been practicing mindfulness, imagery, and thought stopping to deal with Intruding thoughts.
I see my doctor again on 2 September for a follow-up to see what kind of Migraines I may be having and a more permanent solution. I would like to try a natural product for the Migraines, but haven’t found anything yet. I am still waiting for the CT scan of my sinuses and the Ultra Sound of my heart, and a pulmonary testing of my lungs to rule out Costocontritis.
Isn’t are bodies wonderful! So complex and interconnected , one system to another in an orderly manner. Hip replacement surgery is in seven weeks!!!! I lost three pounds this week, even on Prednisone which I think is great!
