Take Me Away

I'm absolutely praying for some pain relief tonight... my head is absolutely trying to explode, and I can't figure out why for the life of me. I can only hope that by 9:30 in the morning my doctor can help me get some relief from all the crazy symptoms that I've been experiencing for the last week or so.

I don't think I've mentioned it before, but for a little over a week I've also been experiencing symptoms that are sort of similar to what I used to have when my blood pressure was up... sort of this immense pressure over my shoulders and neck... followed by a little dizziness, and the headaches... I know that my blood pressure is fine - so something else has to be triggering this.

Initially, I thought it was just stress at work, but unlike my last job - the symptoms and pressure don't stop when I leave the office. I thought that it might be a food problem - so I checked my blood sugar and it was normal... I ate which didn't help... and I even drank a bottle of water with a couple of Tylenol - nothing helps at all.

Anyway, enough about my crazy illness, and more sleep. I hope that tonight I can shut my brain off within the next 20 minutes and actually go to sleep... I'll be back tomorrow shortly after my doctor's appointment.
